January reveiw / February goals

January goals
  • A new project every day...yikes!  Some of these will be WIP's...well more UFO's so they will seem like new projects anyway :)  FAIL - I got really fed up of keep getting a new project (or a different project) out every day and quit the challenge.  As one commenter told me, Debbie would have been the first to remind me that stitching is supposed to be fun.
  • Stitch Holmsey Hare for January. FAIL - I want a nice piece of fabric for this one and as yet haven't found it.
  • Make good progress on Honeysuckle Courtyard as Colin's parents 50th is in April (at least 4 bands).  WOOHOO - one that I actually managed to do! 
  • Not spend any of my SfS budget. FAIL - but in fairness, if I had bought the JCS ornie issue last year when I thought I had, I wouldn't have spent a penny :)

February goals
  • Make good progress on Honeysuckle Courtyard.  It would be nice to pretty much finish it off if possible so that I can send it off to be framed.
  • Stitch an ornie from JCS.
I'm not going to have too many goals as I do want to focus Honeysuckle Courtyard.

Sounds like doable goals Sharon.
Thank you for joining me in the challenge.

And she would have been right. Stitching is supposed to be fun, and relaxing...not stressful.

good idea to have plans for every month

Brigitte said...

It is right - stitching should be fun, always. And if there is something which isn't fun your should drop it, just as you did. I always look at my stitching goals as plans and ideas. If I go for them it's great, if not there's nothing lost.
Greast that you could make some progress on the Honeysuckle Courtyard.

Stitching should be fun.....so I'm glad that you decided to not allow yourself to get too stressed about dropping the challenge :) Well....you made progress and that's the thing! Your Feb goals seem very much achievable

Stitching HAS to be fun, otherwise it becomes a chore! Good luck with the February goals.

Good luck!

The February Goals sound much more manageable! It's a short month too so you don't want too much on your list.

Chuck those grotty fails away! Goals are meant to inspire rofl, and lets not think of it in terms of fail, not when you have made such good progress on others.

Good luck this month. my goal is to keep my stitching organized. That's a laugh.

Totally agree about the fun - it's a hobby not a job! Lovely photo of you in CSC this month!
