We are going through this process at work, so I thought I would do one for my stitching. It’s tedious and boring and even depressing to evaluate actual versus projected, but still much more fun than the one at work 🙂 So here is how I stand on my 2014 goals:
Completed FebFinish Ann Dale or kill myself.Completed February 2, 2014
- Finish at least one of the two unfinished ones mentioned above (Marquoir Elise or Odds and Ends 4). A big F on this one!
- Complete the Nativity Table Runner from Blackberry Lane Designs that I started on Christmas Day 2013. Um…not a single stitch since Christmas.
- Start the Icelandic sampler and make decent progress on it. I need to paint the fabric a dark brown because I have not succeeded in finding or dyeing the dark brown color that is needed for this in 40ct linen. See above.
- Stitch a couple of smalls from purchased or freebie designs. Working on Be True by Plum Street Samplers. Almost done.
- Organize my stash of HDF floss. This will be slow going because I have to wind all the skeins onto spools, sort and wind dbag floss, print labels, update my spreadsheet. I might not be able to finish this in 2014, but I want to at least make some headway. Organized up to Earth Stars.
- Keep up with the Stitch from Stash 2014 group that I just joined. I have kept away from blog groups and SALs so far, but this is a different kind of exercise and there is a lot of flexibility because I can stitch whatever I want. Moreover, it will keep me motivated to post more regularly here. I am still participating but have probably busted my annual budget already 😦 No blog posts on this topic in the last couple of months because I have no new starts or anything to show.
- Keep up with the Randje Per Week SAL. Lagging behind at band 41, while the group is at band 60 right now. I focused on finishing the CHS piece; now that I am done with it, I am back on this one again.
- Last and most important, keep stitching! This is one goal I have had no problem meeting, knock on wood!
