Other January progress - so far

 I have been spending some time working on two other projects so far this month.  

I dug deep into the bin and pulled out Four season mandalas by Ink Circles and dusted off the started Summer...  the part that was done is the section that has colour filled in.  I am working at finishing up the outline - about half done now.



Also got out Plum Pudding.  An unofficial goal for this year is to finish this.... it's still early days so fingers crossed

New start - Henna mandala

 On Boxing Day a couple of friends and I were scheduled to start Ink Circles' Henna mandala....

My thread (the very pretty red clay - Gloriana) was still in the mail so I didn't actually get to start it until last week.  

I chose Country mocha for the fabric; it is a bit tricky to get a picture of so I sure this will be one of those that looks different in every post.

January Goals

To start off the new year let's get back to setting goals.  Goals might be a mislabel; it's more the general idea of the projects that I would like to work on at some point during the month but there is no guarantee.  Mostly they act as a focus so I don't just spend all the time playing on my phone ;)

Christmas break progress

 Christmas was very, very quiet.  None of the usual family get togethers happened this year following the recommendations of the Health Unit to not gather.  This meant that I had much stitching time.
