Stitching Goals - September

I'm back on a roll with my stitching, which is a Good Thing! I've been very good at finishing projects that I've started, but then again I am concentrating on "smalls" :o) Working through my kits - although born out of financial necessity - has been good too, as I don't need to procrastinate and gather supplies, I can just open up the package and get started!

However, lurking at the back of my mind are all my UFOs and projects needing making up into "something" - be it a card, a needleroll, an ornament, a cushion, or simply framing... so I need to do something with those, as well.

I think I can finish my current WIPs by the end of the month, so my September goals are:

New Starts
  • Strawberry Pincushion - Historic Needlework Guild
  • Strawberry - Needleworks by Sue Hawkins
  • Spring Needleroll - Lorri Birmingham Designs
  • Shep - Anchor
  • Sewing - Penelope
  • Baa - The Bold Sheep
  • Bless The Blooms - SanMan Originals
  • Bless This House - Cathy Bussi
  • Bumble Bee Needleroll - Lorri Birmingham Designs
  • Celtic Stones - Textile Heritage
  • The White House - Rowandean
  • Wild Roses - Needleworks by Sue Hawkins

List the remainder of my kits in my "Next Up on The Hoop" spot (which is limited to 5 when other people look at it, believe me, it's a lot bigger! LOL)

Hooray for stash! In times of (fiscal) famine, it's good to know that there's always something in the pantry. :)

One of these days I'm gonna pick up a needle again and perhaps I'll work on some small kits so I feel like I'm accomplishing something. I've got a ton of the little kits from - crap, forgetting who it is. You know, the ones with the scissor fobs, etc...

Yes, it's great to be able to pick something up - I've got enough stash to last me years, but I'm hoping to have a job sooner than that! LOL

Are your kits from Textile Heritage?

Textile Heritage - that's it! :) Sheesh. You'd think with as many as I have, I could remember.

Hang in there - things will get better. Sending positive vibes from across the pond.

I remember because I think I acquired some for you :o)

Bagsy the charts when you've stitched them! LOL

Yesterday it got worse, but I'm feeling more positive, on the principle that "it has to get worse before it gets better"! LOL
