Work has been crazy busy since returning to work on January 2. I was off from work between Christmas and New Years and stitched quite a bit during that time. And I've been able to squeeze in some stitching here and there since going back to work last week.
I have some crazy stitching goals this year. My main goal is to see if I can complete 50 projects this year. I have multiple "monthly" designs planned, along with Bride's Tree ornaments and Christmas ornaments each month.
Plus I started Teresa Wentzler "Noah's Ark" on January 1, joining several ladies in a Teresa Wentzler Stitch-A-Long. I worked on Noah's Ark on January 1, got most of the alphabet in the middle done. Haven't taken a picture yet. I will soon and will post an "in progress" picture.
This past Monday, January 7, I completed 2 projects, my first finishes for 2008:
First up - January FlipIt (from the 2007 Lizzie Kate FlipIts):
I had stitched about 1/2 of it last year and it got put aside and became a UFO. This series is on my list of 2008 stitching goals, so pulled it from the UFO pile this past weekend and finished "January". One down, eleven to go.
Next - Shepherd's Bush "Christmas Is Love". I started it on Dec.28. Also finished it this past Monday night (Jan.7).
I also need to finish up Mirabilia Christmas Elf Fairy. I put her aside end of December when I needed to finish my Fair and Square piece. I'll post an update on Christmas Elf Fairy soon also.
