Happy New Year!
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, peaceful, very crafty 2017, with strength for the not so good times that may show up.
I've actually made a stitching plan for 2017. I'm shocked at myself, I never do that, but I am inspired by all of you who do. So, the overall aim is to reduce my WIPs, most of which are big projects so even a couple of finishes would make me happy. I've joined 2 SALs on Facebook and I want to keep on with the Christmas Ornament SAL (and actually stitch something) run by Kaye at Kitten Stitching and work on my oldest UFO (how often have I said that?).
So this is what my months should look like.
Days 1-7: Ornament SAL. I have a plan this year - and patterns - Dragon Dreams version of 12 Days of Christmas called 12 Dragonlets of 2012 - and fabric! But I'm short floss so January will probably have 1-7 and 22-28 reversed. Hmmm, this is NOT an auspicious start!
Days 8-14: One of my Facebook SAL new starts Crossed Wings Great Blue Heron. I have everything to start him.
Days 15-21: My oldest UFO. This was the last progress picture I took 26 July 2015. Eek, I didn't realise it hadn't even been touched in 2016.
Day 22-28: The second of my Facebook SAL new starts HAED Stormy.
I have everything to start this and because there is no background I'm stitching it on a piece of Colour Cascade Fabrics called Midnight Blue.
Day 29+: I'll concentrate on my .non-cross stitch projects. If my ornament doesn't take all of Week 1, I'll have some "whatever I want" crafting.
Now to see if I can stick to this.
