2015 Stitching Goals

Typically when a new year rolls around I make a list of stitching goals.  The only way they are organized is large projects and small projects.  Then 3 or 4 times during the year I refer back to that list.
As you can imagine the end of the year finish list looks very, very different from the new year goal list.
This year I decided to try something new--make a list of categories of projects and finish one project in each category.  Categories can be by designer or type.
2015 Project Goals List
Needlepoint-Terry Dryden's Tropical Jazz (class WIP)

Gay Ann Rogers-Hollyhock House (WIP)
Crabapple Hill-Mason Jar Wallhanging (WIP)
Guila Punti Antichi-Windmill Box (new start)

Misc as time allows-Strawberries by Historic Needlework Guild (Barbara Jackson) (new starts)
This is 20+ projects.  Definitely doable. 
Unfortunately so far in 2015  I have not touched any of these designs.  So keeping my mind on this list is a challenge in and of itself  :)

Have a Great Weekend!

Oh my goodness, i don't know how even half would be doable in one year. Your fingers must have wings!

Good luck, I hope you get round to some of them. I particularly like the No Place Like Home needlebook one.

OMGosh! Your list is as long as mine! We'll have to cheer each other on and see if we can't make it happen! Laura

Twenty is a do-able number of cross stitch projects--not so sure about the many varieties of projects you have in mind. But then again, you are a very determined person, and you succeed in your goals! Best of luck in 2015!

Cathy B said...

I have some of those projects and would like to work on them too! Looking forward to seeing your progress. Will be cheering for you!

Ann said...

Love every one of these projects and will be cheering you on!

Beth in IL said...

Quite an ambitious list if you ask me! Look forward to seeing your progress.

You have a lot of designs on your list I was tempted to get. I hope you get the chance to stitch on them. I would especially love to see the Pincushion Doll & Trunk.
