Goals for the year????? ....

I do try and start the year with some planned projects...  

Stitch-A-Long

.. one of these this year is Natures Journey by Anni Downs and this Stitch-A-Long is being hosted by Chookyblue (aided and abetted by Susan).....

For January, whilst we waited for the book to be released, we stitched up a lovely free stitchery made available on Anni's blog HERE and made up something with it...

My stitchery (which as you know was spoilt with thread bleeding and restored with tea) has been made up into a small hanging 


I luckily had the little hanger in my cupboard which was just the right size.....

My pattern arrived last week for Natures Journey... it's going to be fun with lots of little applique blocks and I had some French General fabrics 'hoarding' in the cupboard and they have been informed their time is now.....


Christmas Projects

Another of my 'planned' projects is to keep up with Christmas sewing by participating in Christmas Through The Year  (CTTY) hosted by  Anthea (this months linky post is HERE) and 1 Christmas Item A Month hosted by Narelle.... ideally I will do a gift AND a Christmas themed item each month, but either way I expect to be thoroughly motivated by what other people make and share ....

So my little hanger will count as one... and the other stitchery I did when I thought I had messed up the first one.. has been framed in a simple frame 


I have a few Christmas stitcheries made up that are now hanging around UFO's... so I hope to get on top of those by participating in these fun blog activities.

Anyone can join either of these Christmas bloggy fun acitivities....

OPAM

Another fun bloggy thing I love participating in is OPAM... which is hosted jointly by Kris and Peg.... the goal is to try and finish at least one thing a month....no pressure, no competitiveness, just fun and motivation.... Sign Ups finish on February 1st... read up and sign up HERE or HERE if you'd like to know more about it....

Righto, Gotto Go... off to dig the next project out....

  4. Good luck Fiona. I don't want to make a goal much as much as I should. I'd probably give myself a shock. :). Hugs, xx
