I was able to spend a bit more time on my Monsterbubbles pieces on Sunday and I am happy with the way it is shaping up. At this stage, it is a perfect piece for waiting rooms since there are large blocks of a single color to be filled in. I should have thought of that before I mounted it on a doodle lap frame ... not exactly the most portable of stitching frames. Ah, well, live and learn.

It has been suggested that a master list of the charts in this series be included as a sidebar. I should have thought of that myself, which only goes to illustrate what I said in the very first post about fine tuning this blog as we go along. Apparently, not every shop distributed the entire set, so folks want to see what they might be missing. So I spent a little time this morning putting it together.

Thank you Riona for setting up this blog! I'm really excited to get some of these stitched up. Eventually I'd like to have a tree full of these little finishes making up my Tree Town. ;) So far I've finished two in the past, but unfortunately don't recall the designers. I have another kitted up, but again don't know which one, will look later tonight. I'll also dig out the CD and see which ones I'd like to work up first...
I hesitate to say this but it was relatively easy to set up this blog ... which means I will probably discover I overlooked all sorts of important details. Until such time, let's all have some fun with these great charts ... we can fine tune the blog settings as the need arises.
My first suggestion is that, once we have established our roster of charter member participants, we divide up the list of designers and wholesalers who contributed charts and e-mail or snail mail each a thank-you note and invite them to drop in from time to time to view the uses to which we have put their generous gift.
I couldn't wait to get started ... as soon as I printed my charts from the CD-rom ... three jumped out at me immediately:
Crescent Colors' Saloon
Val's Stuff's Train Depot
Since I needed to pick up a few skeins of floss for the Saloon, I began on the Jail first.
