August Goals

Well I reached every goal last month except for finishing Tina's book. It helps to avoid establishing concrete goals. For now I'll stick with just putting some stitches in each month.

So for August:

1. Finish Tina's book.
2. Stitch a bit on Midi 1
3. Stitch a bit on WG
4. Acquire more supplies for Midi 3
5. Stitch a bit on JG
6. Stitch a bit on Stealing Oats.
7. Stitch a bit on a Love Quilt square.
8. Stitch a bit on the Rose bookmark
9. Participate in the SALs at the HAED bb
10. Stitch an ornament at the fourth weekend SAL
11. Stitch a bit on Santorini
12. Stitch a bit on Japnese Lady
13. Stitch a bit on one of my TW WIPs.

I've found some of my UFO's and will try to work on them too if I have a chance. I found the Elephants on the Savannah and there is more done than I remembered. I should finish it this year and give it to my step-dad. It must be one of my oldest projects. I started it in the mid 1990'sand it is one of my first over-one projects. The fabric I had wasn't big enough to stitch it over two, so I decided to use two strands over one. The fabric is perfect it's an even weave that has slubby parts like linen, but the slubs almost form a pattern of their own. It's pretty-you'll see it when I finish.

I'm also debating leaping off the 25 challenge. I think I really want Pompeii Garden. I'm trying to remind myself that I'm not likely to start it before Martina releases the chart in a year or two, but so far I think the rational side of my brain is losing the battle. As of tonight, I am nearly convinced that it is my favorite Chatelaine ever.

And this is why my WIPs, SWIPs, and UFOs list is so long....

That's a great list of goals, and I bet you'll reach them all. I'm so impressed with you for making them, I never make goals except at my job. Mmmm...maybe I should.
