Time out

 At the start of the year I made a list of all the projects I had started; which is scary and I don’t recommend.  I reviewed the list and decided to send some projects to the naughty bin. I have not given up on these projects but I know that I have too many to work on and I should lower the number I was actively working on. At some point these will be let out.

Forest walk (Heaven and Earth Designs)

Winter tree silhouette (Artecy)

Canada sampler (Stitchtova)

Fantasy triptych (Teresa Wentzler)

Dragons of Sumatra (Ink Circles)

Shakespeare’s fairies (Mirabilia)

Let is snow (Barbara Ann Designs) – I am not sure why this is in the bin; I wouldn’t take long to finish

Happy Christmas row

 I started this in July (aka Christmas in July) and managed to put in the last stitches last month.

Baby row

In July I finished Baby row by Bent Creek.  This was a gift for my cousin’s new baby Rose who was born in April.  It is now framed and at it’s new home but I forgot to get a picture of it all framed.

Summer mandala

 In March I finished Summer mandala from Ink Circles’ Four seasonal mandalas.  I am now half done the set; Winter is also finished. No timeline on when the next season will start.

November Goals

It seems crazy but it is already November.  This year has flown by; I have gotten so little done.  I am going to attempt to return to the blog, I have missed it but doing catch up posts seems too much.  I am not sure yet what the catch up is going to look like yet but to start - a return to the monthly goals aka a vague outline of stitching it would be nice to do this month.

November Goals

Finish mystery project

Finish Heanna manadala

Work on Plum pudding

Work on Jardin de Plasir

Finish organizing Mother's bliss to start

August Goals

 I have attempted to create a new stitching plan for August; the last few months I have been stitching without a plan and it has not worked in my favour; I have been so unfocused.

For August:

Before work: Tour des marques

Lunch time: Serenity prayer

Saturday: Long Dog day - for at least a little a Long Dog Sampler project: Jardin de Plaisir or Krozwyrd

Sunday: Ink Circles day - for at least a little a Ink Circle project: Henna mandala or Castle walls

Other days: Plum pudding

The Wave

Christmas row (Bent Creek)

Also, for my birthday I am starting a new project: White griffin

I also want to catch up on blog posts and I have a list of things to improve the stash zone as well as a general cleanup of the area.
