I have been reading others 2017 plans/goals and have been enjoying them so I thought maybe you all would enjoy reading my plans/goals.
First off is my Advent Animals by Brooke's Books. I completed 12 in 2016 and plan to stitch another 12 in 2017. There are 25 all together so it would be the icing on the cake if I stitched all 13 this year.
Next up, I joined a Christmas Ornament SAL last year and you choose an ornament to stitch according to the theme for the month. I was finding by the end of the year that it was becoming a chore to stitch 2 ornaments each month (with the advent animal ornament), so this year (and I hope I am not breaking too many rules) I am going to stitch ABC Christmas by Lizzie Kate. I had a look and there is a word on it to fit each theme, so I will still be able to belong to the SAL and I am sure 1 word a month isn't too much for me.
For my new year, new start I am going to start Halloween Rules by Lizzie Kate. I am going to start it on January 1st but I don't know if I will get any further with it until I finish ABC's of Parenting and ABC Christmas. I kinda made a rule a while back that I can only have 1 wip per designer going at once so if I finish up the other 2 I will put all my time into it.
And last but not least is Hannah Lynn which left off here
I would love to manage another page finish but with the diagonal columns getting so long I would be happy with 2 diagonal columns.
I will also be starting a Mirabilia in March, Mermaid of the Pearls. I will be happy with any progress I make on it. I also want to stitch the new freebie from Blackwork Journey called Sublime Stitches but that will only happen if I somehow manage to finish Save the Stitches, so probably not.
I hope you all enjoyed reading my goals for the year.
We had to say goodbye to our Micah yesterday. She was 12 and was in pretty good health right up until yesterday. I got her when I was 19, my first dog as an adult out on my own. My kids grew up with her and she was wonderful with them.
