College and Cinderella's Castle Update


My summer class has ended and my instructor emailed me final grade ...I made an A!!! So excited because it has been many years since I had to take a college class.  I actually enjoyed the class, it was the tests that were bad.   They were all essay and short answer.  Each week you were given a study guide with 12 terms/people etc. that you had to write at least a paragraph over and then 4 essay questions.  On test day, you were given 9 of the 12 terms and had to write about 6 of them.  The essay questions were divided into 2 groups of 2 and you had to pick one essay from each group  to write about.  It was all memory...no hints or anything!!!  So proud of my grade!!!

Onto my stitching,  Cinderella's Castle is coming along!!!  I actually took this to Rome with me and worked on it some on the plane and on our afternoon resting time in the hotel. Love it!!  Wish I were there right now!!!

It has been decided by my followers that I am a little crazy for starting such a huge project with the Sistine Chapel design.  I am still waiting on my fabric and I haven't figured out how to start the design.   I have to decide if I want to start it lengthwise and work across then down which is harder.....or start it widthwise and across, then down that way...which is easier.  Decisions, Decisions!!!!

I am very thankful to Laura who has decided to start her chapel in January and we are going to do a SAL.  I joined the yahoo group for the chapel design...but no one is chatting there....maybe they are all stitching!!!

Congrats on your A! I like classes where you get the study guides... at least you know what the tests will be over. I rarely had classes like that when I was getting my degree.

The castle looks great!

I was thinking about where I would start the Sistine Chapel if I were doing it. I think I'd have to start in the middle, so I could roll the extra fabric, then work out from there. I know that's not the norm for the larger projects, but it might work.

I found this while searching for a copy of the instructions online... I am trying to complete this project and have been for years now, but I keep losing the bits... this time I have all of the pattern and threads but lost the key to what the symbols mean... so looks like it's being abandoned for the third time!

Did you get it finished? Would love to see the final version while I wait on disney (hopefully) sending me something of what the symbols on the chart mean!
