Update on 2008 Stitching Goals

2008 Stitching Goals

This year I decided to give myself goals for the upcoming year on what I want to accomplish stitching wise. Some things I have already started and I want to complete by the end of the year, others I want to start and finish this year, one I just want to start and make it a project that I stitch during the holiday season in hopes of completing it within two years, and the last thing is finally framing completed pieces that I have been planning on for at least a year maybe more. I will do my own framing since it is cheaper that way and I am always pleased with how it turns out. So sit back and enjoy your journey into my stitching word in 2008 with updates every month of WIP and completions.

1. Finish Mother's Bliss - Has been scrapped due to the fabric not being enough and now all that work has to be done again. I think this is going on next year's list.

2. Finish Enchanted Fairy - Have stitched 20 hours total so far

3. Finish Colonial Houses - Have stitched 11 hours so far.

4. Finish The Bakery - Will work on during month long SAT next month

5. Finish The Stitcher - Will work on during month long SAT next month

6. Stitch 4 Ornaments for me - Still need to pick out 4

7. Stitch Old West by Little House Needleworks for M - Need to purchase

8. Stitch Christmas Elf Fairy and Easter Fairy by Mirabilia - Need fabric and floss for both.

9. Stitch Cirques des Cercles by Ink Circles - Need fabric and Floss

10. Stitch one Halloween Piece - Need to choose

11. Start one Christmas Piece - Need to choose

12. Frame one completed piece each month

February Stitching Goals

In January I was able to stitch 10 hours on Mother's Bliss, Enchanted Fairy, and Colonial Houses. This month I hope I am able to do another 10 hours each on those pieces plus get 10 hours done on The Bookshelf. I also need to decide which piece will get framed as part of my goal to frame one piece each month. Here is to hoping I get more stitching done this month than I did last month. I need to get all the stitching done while I can because before long summer will be upon us and the time for stitching will be scarce while summer activities vie for my attention.
