Here is my progress on "In Memory"
I'm using Vicki Claytons HDF, and I am really liking the conversion. It's not EXACT, but close enough for my taste. This is 11 days progress, and I am really enjoying it so far. My biggest challenge, of course, is the extra fabric. I don't have a scroll rod or a stand, so my hoop tends to be quite heavy. I don't dare cut the excess until I have reached each corner so I will know for sure where to cut. I'll plug along for now.
A very nice lady out there in blogland (BeckySC) announced recently that she is hosting a BAP SAL, with certain requirements (found here), and if you finish by December 31, 2012, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 GC for stash! I figured since I met the requirements, I may as well enter. She has over 100 participants, so winning a GC is a long shot, but it's nice to know I have lots of company stitching large projects!
I am also posting progress on the Remembrance SAL thread on the 123 stitch message board. I am kind of co-hostessing this SAL with another very kind lady who is a member of the board. We encourage anyone who wants to stitch a piece in memory of a loved one to join in and post progress. It's nice to be able to share memories and stories about my Mom.
