I have a cunning plan...

...Can you remember who used to say that?

I have decided that I need some kind of a goal to fail at this year. So the plan each month is...

Stitch the facebook JCS group monthly ornie. The reason for this is that I bought a twig/blossom tree last year for Christmas and despite how many ornies I have stitched/received over the years, it still looked bare-ish.  I'm sure that isn't a real word but I'm sure you know what I mean.  Another 12 would help with that!
Stitch the Mabel Figworthy 2015 SAL.. I started the last SAL in 2013 and have made it to April. These would be lovely stitched on one piece of fabric each and hung in the hallway. If I could get one stitched each month this year, then I could do the 2013 SAL next year and actually get them hung. I do enjoy learning all the new stitches for them.
Stitch 2 days of the 2015 istitch Advent SAL. Surely even I can manage two a month?  Then if I can REALLY over achieve and do 2 extra over the course of the year, it will be finished in time for Advent this year!
Each Sunday use the random generator to select one of my WIP/UFO list projects. This will then be my piece to work on for the week unless I am working on any of the above designs instead and then it can wait until the following week.

What do you think?  Is this manageable?  Can I do it?

Well Baldrick, I think this is the best Cunning Plan in the history of Cunning Plans since Mr Cunning got together with Ms Plan and said "how about it, baby?"

In fact, it is not dissimilar to my current cunning plan! Start one small each Friday and stitch until complete. Then work on the main WIP until the following Friday.

Also, could you send me the link for the FB Ornie Group? I'd like to stalk and lurk even if I don't join in every month!

You can do it Sharon.

As Jo above said, this doesn't sound like the most impossible cunning plan in history, but then I don't know how this fits around your other commitments. At least it's a better cunning plan than chopping your mother's head off to overcome the problem of her low ceilings!! Good luck! :)

If you achieve your goals a giant turnip may be the prize:) good luck with your goals

Shelly said...

Good luck, Sharon! I like the idea of using the random generator to pick the lucky WIP.

Heather said...

Sounds like a cunning plan but I'm a bit disappointed that there aren't any rude shaped turnips!

Brigitte said...

You are like me, lol. I also need a cunning plan at the beginning of a new stitching year. But I already known that I will follow it just for a while, lol. But I don't care, the main thing is that I HAVE a plan. Good luck with yours :)

Christine said...

That plan is so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel!

Katie said...

Good luck with your goals! You can do it.

Emma/Itzy said...

good luck! I really want to get my iStitch finished in time for December too xx

Sally said...

Definitely a good cunning plan! Good luck!

It sounds perfectly reasonable and unlike Baldrick's plans I'm sure it will work out as you intend.

I have confidence youre going to ace these, haha. Interesting SALs you picked and the last one is a must. Have fun!

Faith... said...

Great plan Sharon! Hope it works for you and you have a lot of ornaments for your tree!

Mii Stitch said...

I am sure you can get away with this cunning plan :)
I am not familiar with those SALs but if the charts are not too big, then you'll be fine I'm sure!
Most importantly, have fun with your stitching!!

Cunning plans are so much better than subtle ones - even if you paint them purple! It sounds very doable and I like the random generator for picking your weekly piece.
