January Review

I didn't specifically set any goals for January - apart from not making any new starts until I had completed some of my outstanding UFOs.

That resolution got broken. Big style.

I blame my new addiction to designing, and the need to stitch up models. I'm going to have to work on a better balance for this...

Anyway, I managed seven finishes for the month:

  • Valentine Biscornu - Linden Bee Designs  
  • Valentine Scissor Fob - Linden Bee Designs
  • January Snow Biscornu - Linden Bee Designs 
  • January Snow Scissor Fob - Linden Bee Designs
  • A is for Anchor - Prairie Schooler 
  • New Year Biscornu - Linden Bee Designs
  • New Year Scissor Fob - Linden Bee Designs 
Charts for all my designs are available - follow the links in the sidebar.

Knitting has slowed because of all the stitching, but I did manage some finishes:

  • Innocent Smoothie Hats = 37
  • Knitted Netbook Cover
  • Tardis Washcloth 
However, only one item from my box of finished pieces got made up:
  • Alphabet Sampler - Needlecraft - Long Pillow  
There's great news on the fundraising front though - donations to the MS Trust have reached £43! A big THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed, it really is appreciated. Considering I set a target of £100 for the year, to have got to 43% of the target in the first month is fab!

So, now to plan my goals for this month ...

You have gotten so very much accomplished ... your designing "addiction" is as absorbing to watch as it develops [from your blog readers' perspective] as it must be to experience from your own perspective. I have been doing a lot of thinking about the nature of creativity this year: what prompts the impulse, how the concepts are implemented, etc.

Congrats on the goals you achieved and Good Luck on the ones you set.

Wow - you got a lot done in January! That's wonderful. And although you stitched a lot of your models, it is wonderful that you are so excited about your new venture.
