So Many Stitches a Week - Week 11

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all the nice comments and votes on my last post.  I also asked for votes on the Stitch Maynia facebook group.  Mr. Darcy started way ahead than Jane passed him up and won by 2 votes.  Some gals just said Jane and some Jane Eyre.  No one said Jane Austin.  I should be able to start Jane Eyre next week.

I am already thinking about projects for next year.  As you can see by the title I will be calling it "So Many Stitches a Week".  A different project Sunday through Saturday.  Mr Darcy will be my January 1 start and one of the projects.

For this years pieces I roughly counted the total number of stitches I have left on each one and divided by 41 weeks left in the year to see how many stitches I have to do per week to get each one done by the end of the year.  This are done through week 11.  I will tell you on each one below.

Sweet Spring by Satsuma Street - 70 stitches per week

Dog Park by Satsuma Street - 125 stitches per week

Garden Cat by Satsuma Street - 110 stitches per week

Pretty Little New York by Satsuma Street - 70 stitches per week

Pretty Little Barcelona by Satsuma Street - 205 stitches per week

The Mad Hatter by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy - 80 stitches per day - His hat is taking shape.
 I did 1369 stitches for a total of 5605 stitches.  I only have to do 1115 this week to be caught up.

I am really enjoying working on The Mad Hatter and will be very sad when I get him caught up.  Then I will be happy because I will start Jane Eyre and get to work on her in the evenings until she is caught up and will be sad again.  Then I will get happy again because I will start another one.  She told me she is going to be working on the Wizard of Oz characters.  I am trying to convince her to do Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Thanks for stopping by.  Linda

I love your plans for the year... and what a great idea for next year's plans :o)
I can't wait to see more of the Satsuma Street designs take shape! Every time I see the Mad Hatter he looks better and better and more tempting!

Brigitte said...

The Satsuma Street animals already look very cool. Looking forward to seeing more of them.
Great progress on the other projects and nice plans.

You're making great progress on all your pieces, but I am especially enjoying your updates to the Mad Hatter. My Disney geeky-ness just can't be tamed.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

What a clever idea! Did you count the stitches or estimate the amount needed?
I voted Jane Eyre because no-one else had at that time, I just liked her the best. Looking forward to seeing you start her.

I wish I could be as organized as you! I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on all of them.

Looking forward to 'so many stitches', nice title:)

Justine said...

I'm not sure I've followed your rotation plans but all of your current projects are so bright and lovely. Happy stitching!

Tiffstitch said...

Wow, that certainly sounds do-able when you break it down like that. I love how all of these are taking shape. Maybe it's good if it takes her a few months to get to the Snow White designs because then you'll have all of these farther along and can start more then?

Terrific plans for the remainder of this year and for next year! You are really planning ahead lady! Hope all your plans work out for you.

Wow, so detailed to know how many stitches you have to put into each project. I have Sweet Spring in my stash pile, and seeing your cute bunny emerge makes me itch to start stitching on it.

You are very organised. I really love the Satsuma street projects. There's just something about them. Your work looks amazing on all your wips. I really love New York. I'm looking forward to more of The Mad Hatter. I have a bit of a fetish for Hatter charts and I haven't seen this one before.
Good luck catching up. I had to laugh at your roller coaster of emotions of when you finish a project but then you get to start another one. It's very cute.

Hi Linda: So many projects to see and enjoy, wow I would never have been able to decipher the counts per week on a stitch count, you rock lady.
I love Jane Austin.

Blessings

I continue to be amazed and impressed by the number of projects you have on the go at one! I love you've broken your projects down into stitches-per week :)

Sarah in Stitches said...

Wow, that is a lot of stitching per week! Your projects are looking lovely, great progress :D

Vickie said...

Such great stitching!!! I am so glad I am not the only one who counts their stitches!
