June Goals Status (with pics)

Midway through June I decided that maybe setting stitching goals AND holding myself accountable is a necessary part of Stitching from Stash. So. I'm going to try this "stitching goals" thing again. But with pictures this time! Because I like posting pictures.

Ongoing Projects:

OK, I have way too many of these. 
  • Just Nan's Mouse in a House series - goal is to actually get them all done within a reasonable timeframe.
  • Frosted Pumpkin Mysterious Halloween Town - whether finished or not, this will be out of rotation by end of September in favor of a Christmas design. So hopefully I can finish it by then.
  • Faby Reilly Lizzie Stitching Wallet - this is a stitch along that runs through October. Goal is to keep up with it.
  • Tempting Tangles Feathers n Fins - I love this, but stitching on 40 count is a challenge, so it's slow going. Goal is at least one or two threads per month.
  • Spring Robin - this is an old-ish WIP (started in 2014); shooting for an August finish.
  • Nora Corbett Bleeding Heart Pixie - I sort of accidentally started this; goal is at least one or two threads per month.
  • Stitch Maynia starts - the small designs will be take-to-work projects. I hope to finish one of the larger designs by the end of the year (Not a Creature Was Stirring by Lizzie Kate).

  1. It looks like setting goals helped to keep you focused on what you wanted to accomplish. Good for you! I look forward to seeing where you are at the end July.

  3. Really loved your picture-filled post, Amy--especially those cute JN Mouse creations. They are adorable! Hope your July goals are easily met. I am not a goal-setter (other than my ornament a month goal which I am failing miserably at this year :)

    Happy 4th to you!
