Working on WIP's and Lots of Goals

Hello friends!!

First ... Congratulations to Carol!  I'll be passing the Give Thanks chart on to you to stitch next. : )

In other stitching news...

No finishes to show this week.  I actually pulled out two WIP's from my piles (GASP) and set one in each of my "relax in the evenings" rooms.  My HAED stocking is in the Living Room where I watch football with DH on Sundays and Mondays, and sometimes baseball during the week.  Remember this stocking?

 I haven't stitched on it since April!  Here's my progress now... (It's a crummy picture... SORRY!)

I only managed 400 stitches or so, but I am so glad to have finished that chunk of confetti stitching at the bottom of the column!!  YAY!

The next WIP I pulled out I hadn't touched since February... of 2012!!!  It's the one in the upper left.  This is the one I stitch on when DD and I have Jane Austen or old movie marathons.  I remember why I stopped working on it.  It's a kit and the floss is definitely NOT DMC.  It shreds horribly!!! : ( 

Here's my progress...

I do love the colors in that one! : )

I went through my patterns and WIP's and such the other day and picked out a number that I would like to work on this next little while.  I definitely couldn't finish all of them in that time since a number of them are bigger projects, but maybe if I finish a few of them before Christmas I'll have my Crazy January 15 all picked out.  I didn't do the Crazy January challenge last year, but looking back at 2012, I really did well on completing most of those projects, so I think I might try it again this coming year.

1.  HAED Little Drummer Boy Stocking**

You made great progress on your projects Tricia. I love that you have your list already for the CJC2014. I have been thinking about it, but I'll change my mind a thousand times between now and Jan 1.

Congratulations to Carol. She is a talented stitcher and wonderful stitching friend.
You are making good progress on your wip's, Tricia.
Ironically,when my daughter comes home, I work on a wip but admit not much gets done because we catch up on tv, fun stuff and snack!
Yes, I agree...kits can be frustrating. Seems that the larger they are, the worse it gets.

You have some very lovely WIPs on the go. I also pull mine out from time to time to put some stitches in.
Nice progress on the stocking.

Andrea said...

Lots of lovely progress. Good luck with your list.

Carol said...

I'm so excited that you picked my name, Tricia :) I'm really looking forward to stitching it...

Your stocking is amazing--so much detail makes it look incredibly realistic. Good luck with your list--I wish I was that organized. I just tend to stitch one project at a time and when that is done, I'm sometimes at a loss as to what to start next!!

Sally said...
