For the first month of 2016 our Questions is not really a question but more a who are you and what are you planning for this year.
Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
I am an avid stitcher that loves to have a needle in my hand whenever I can. I usually have 4 projects going at once and sometimes up to 7. I rotate about one project per day but for some I just can't put it down after a single day so I push on with it for 2 maybe 3 days. This usually happens when I am close to a finish or completing a particular area of a project. I have no one particular designer or style that I like to stitch. I am all over the map with the things I stitch. MOST of my projects are made as gifts for family and friends, but this year I have decided this is the "Year Of ME" I want to stitch the entire year things that are devoted to be items I will keep. People that know me have laughed when I tell them this. They all are placing bets on when I will cave in and see a project and say ooohhhhhhhh that would make a perfect gift for.....I know this is bound to happen but I hope that the majority of my stitching will be projects that I have bought for myself.
Just this week I have got my WIPs up to 4 projects that I am currently rotating.
#1 is my HEAD Christmas Cottage by Dona Gelsinger I want to put alot of time in on this The end of 2015 saw me finishing the first to rows, this means I am a bit over 25% finished. The pattern says 64 pages but that is a bit miss leading there are 48 full pages the other 16 pages are just partials. Regardless of all that I have quite a way to go and I want to complete at least 1 full row this calendar year. This is a fun stitch as there are areas of confetti mixed in with large areas of solid colors so I get a good combination of stitching all in one project.
#3 is a Mill Hill Santa. I do not usually do Mill Hill because I do not like beads. It is just a personal thing, normally I convert the beads to metallic thread but this one is so cute that I am going to muttle through and do the kit as is, beads and all.
#4 is Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Again I do not normally do kits but I have had this in my stash for many years. I bought several of the Disney designs and my intent is to complete a group of the characters and then make myself a quilt. The progress picture is where I am currently but I am working on her today so I will be a bit farther tonight.
So this is my update for this full moon. I look forward see the other stitchers work and continuing on with my own work. Hope you are all doing well and that this New Year will bring health and happiness.
