Heartstrings Santa with Noah's Ark: This has been my travel project and I have worked on it at lunch time and during my one waiting room stint this week, at the car dealership [the second such visit in four days]. So I have to be content with some noticeable progress on this piece, even though I had hoped to have it finished by now. All that's left is a bit of the green on the cuffs, the roof & windows of the ark, Santa's face and beard and the specialty stitches [very few of them]. Since we are expecting snow Tuesday and Wednesday, I may have more stitching time if I have to cancel classes. So there's hope I'll catch up with my self-imposed schedule.
But, overall, it seems unlikely that I'll be able to meet all of my monthly or annual goals if this rather slow pace continues. The Autumn Faerie was supposed to have been done in January and I was supposed to have been able to tackle two more BAPs this year: the TW Woodland Angel Stocking for my grandson and the TW Winter Faerie for my daughter. I think I need to admit that the Winter Faerie probably won't happen this year. As to monthly goals for February, I haven't gotten to the Brightneedle Ghosts & Ghoulies Etui or the Papillion Creations Peacock Square, nor have I selected and kitted a chart for the February Bride's Tree SAL motif, a heart. There are two bright spots in all this: I am really treasuring every moment I manage to spend stitching and I have been blogging a little more regularly [one of my annual goals].
