I also need to do some serious organization. I reeived a couple of orders that I had sent here rather than hauling it from Texas. First a bunch of fabrics that were on sale at Herschners many month ago and my order from ECC for two Chatelaines, Classicism and Old World Vinery. I am not sure when I will get to these but I just did not want to chance any of the specialty threads being discontinued in the next year and I got a refund on some taxes that, of course, I had to spend.
This month I want to finish or at least make some good progress on a few things before I start working on 2016 projects. One of my many goals for this month is to have no new starts. Just work on WIPs. I usually plan my next year the week between Christmas and New Year's Day.
I miss working on Gardens of London by Chatelaine. I figured out that once I got through alot of the specialty stitches and borders that were so much fun to do I am a little bored with doing the cross stitching and back stitching on the buildings. There are many color changes and the chart is a little tedious to read. I am back to it this month, determined to get at least the London Bridge section finished. I changed to a smaller qsnap for this project since I found the 14x14 was sort of becoming a problem for me.
Hoping to get some good progress done on Pumpkin Swirl by Glendon Place. I am just a little over halfway done with it. Have no plans for it after it is finished so this one of really kind of on the back burner. I do want to finish it so I can free up my Millenium frame for another project next year.
A long way to go on Ink Circles RYOB but it is a pretty quick stitch. Hope to finish it soon and get it in the mail to its intended recipient.
Knot Garden by Chatelaine. I am not keeping time on this project as I do with most of my others. Now that I have moved out of the center I am really enjoying the project as I work through the specialty stitches. I think I will frame this piece and keep it for myself.
Books Reading Books, Heaven and Earth Design:
This so confetti heavy that it is taking me quite a while. I am loving it, and cannot wait to get moving along on it. I am thinking I need to allocate a certain amount of time a week to make some good progress on this piece. I have now been at it a year.
Mini Mandala II-C by Chatelaine.
Barely started this project but I am looking forward to working on it and finishing it to go with the other mini mandala in the series that I have completed.
I do not know when I will work on my Needlepoint projects again. No travel planned for a few months, but you never know when I will have to ride somewhere. I am thinking these would make good traveling projects.
Thanks for visiting.
I wish you a wonderful Christmas Season and a terrific New Year.
