January was Guilt-Free but ...

... I can't help myself: I am still doing an assessment! I'm not an INTJ in the 97%ile on the Meyers-Briggs scale for nothing!!!

January Projects:
  1. The Focus Project: Teresa Wentzler's Autumn Faerie: clearly this will continue to be the focus project in February as well. I have moved along on it but ever so slowly.
  2. One Christmas Ornament: Bride's Tree SAL House ornament using the Workbasket Christmas House from an old JCS ornament issue ... with a few modifications. I still need to stitch a back with the word "Protection" and the date and my R rune before assembling this as a fringed pillow ornament.
  3. One Thanksgiving Ornament: Done - Let Us Give Thanks from BHG 1001 Cross-stitch Motifs.
  4. Smalls: PS 2000 Annual card Santa, Handblessing's Autumn Lace Bookmark.
  5. UFO Countdown project: Mill Hill Bead Kit Sail Away from the Spring Bouquet series.
  6. Sewing Finishes: this has been more problematic seeing as how the dining room table has been co-opted by Mom's stash
  7. Then, there was the whole Mom's Stash Inventory and Giveaway thing ... this took up hours and hours of my time.

February Goals:
  1. Focus on Teresa Wentzler's Autumn Faerie
  2. Complete Bride Tree SAL February [Heart] Christmas Ornament
  3. Complete one Thanksgiving ornament: The Pilgrim Boy and Girl from the BH&G 1001 Cross Stitch Motifs
  4. Continue to work on one medium project: Brightneedle's Ghost and Ghoulies Etui
  5. Finish up Heartstring's Noah's Ark Santa as the February Small Project
  6. UFO Countdown project: Peacock Biscornu
  7. Sewing Finishes: Try to generate another Finishing Frenzy during the Winter recess ... one to equal the Autumn frenzy of 2009.

Congratulations on your achievements in January, even if they weren't all stitching ones, and good luck with February! I can't believe it's nearly here already - it means I will shortly be another year older!

Keep plugging away at Autumn Fairie TW's stuff is just awesome and there's such a sense of satisfaction/victory when you finish a TW!!!

Looks like you accomplished quite a bit for January. I am still trying to finish my first piece of 2010 and am pretty sure it wont be a January finish :)

Great work on the January goals. I decided not to make Feb goals as sometime I will have DS & his wife staying with us. It is such a sense of achievement to reach your goals.
