Round up of 2012, 2013 goals

Well WIPocalypse didn't happen, we didn't all die...what a relief!

Thanks to the wonderful WIPocalypse I actually finished 8 designs that may otherwise still be languishing in my WIP/UFO box.  The one I really wanted done, got done - Cut Thru Garden Shed so that was good news.

I didn't start too many new projects that didn't get finished - also good news.

So for 2013 I am taking part in the following:

  • Turtle Trot SAL
  • 6 Fat Men/Snow Belles SAL (haven't got the Snow Belles yet)
  • TUSAL (and my glass is all ready to go)
  • WIPocalypse
  • Theme-a-licious
So between them all I should stay on track - fingers crossed.

I also got the Santa's village series on autoship from The Patchwork Rabbit for Christmas so I want to keep up with that.  I have ordered a lovely piece of Chocolate Milk 28ct jobelan from Steph's Fabbys to stitch it on and am just waiting for that to arrive.  If you have never tried either company, I really would recommend them both.

The designs I am planning on focussing on for WIPocalypse and adding in to my Theme-a-licious months are the following.  3 of them a technically obligation stitches in so much as they will have a new home to go to when they are finished.  
  1. Cinderella - Joan Elliott
  2. Henry VIII and his 6 wives - DMC
  3. Friends are like Angels - Lizzie Kate
  4. Horse Racing - John Clayton
  5. Garden Tools - Anchor
  6. Around the World - Papillon Creations
  7. Confetti of Hardanger - Abi Gurden
  8. Maggie the Messmaker - Dimensions Gold Collection
  9. Honeysuckle Court - Patricia Ann Designs
  10. 6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate
  11. Football Cushion - Sheena Rogers
  12. Tatty Teddy Bookmark - Anchor
  13. She sells seashells - Country Cottage Needleworks
I would also like to be able to send birthday cards, maybe a small gift to people I have met through blogging.  Or maybe be able to RAK someone who is having a tough time of it during the year.  If you would be open to possibly receiving something from me (so far no one has said 'OMG, what did you send me that for?) then could you email me with your name, address, date of birth, any real likes/dislikes, and anything else you think is relevant.  I promise I am not some mad psycho who will stalk you and I will not sell your details to any third party organisations - or whatever it is companies always put when you sign up with them...lol.  My email is in my profile but just in case of any problems, it is sharonjstevens at msn dot com - with the usual changes of at and dot.

Nice choices. I'm doing the Papillon too and I found the L*K chart in a box this week so I must stitch and pass it on!

Feel free to RAK me whenever you want, loved your last parcel. I'm always very grateful too!
