2012 Goals

Some goals remain the same, some old goals are dropped and some new ones are added:

***A UFO Challenge: The Class Pieces: Gather all the class pieces from the UFO basket. Work on one at a time until all are completed. This may be a two year challenge, given the number of projects involved.

***Limit new starts to one medium piece a month until all current WIPs and 2012 Challenge pieces are stitched.

***Stitch some Heart Ornaments to display from Jan 10 [Wedding Anniv.] through Feb. 14 [Valentine's Day]

***Stitch one ornament a month from the 2006 Indy Town Square series.

***Limit stash purchases to fiber and fabric needed tp complete charts on hand.

***Continue to blog every other day.

***Choose and complete two BAPs. Finish TW's Tracery Dragons and then start Liam's Christmas stocking, TW Wentzler's Woodland Angel and then at least starting [but, one hopes, finishing] Piper's stocking, Dimensions' Woodland Maiden, as a companion piece. I may switch things up and start Piper's stocking first, too much TW can be ennervating. If I manage to finish these, I'd like to start on Scherzo.

***Catch up on sewing finishes.

***Finish setting up the sewing/craft/TV room.

***Inventory chart stash and set some priorities for completing what is on hand.

***Declutter stash. Ruthlessly eliminate charts that will never be stitched and UFOs that will never be completed from stash. Use the charts for giveaways. Consider setting up a UFO exchange for the fun of it.

***Attend an EGA chapter meeting as a member-at-large, or take an EGA on-line course. I also want to attend the Alumni Stitcher's Hideaway this year, instead of the one of the class type hideaways. The main reason is that it would fit in nicely with my Crazy January Challenges: Class Pieces goal. I'd have a whole hideaway to work on an older class piece and I wouldn't be adding any new ones to the mix.

Thanks for sharing your 2012 goals. I am going to borrow at least 1 of your goals, to limit my stash purchases to threads and fabric for stitching patterns already on hand. This will be a difficult goal to stick to!
Happy New Year,

Those are some hefty challenges/goals, and got me thinking about my UFOs. For the longest time I said to everyone, I have no UFOs! I did a stash sweep awhile ago and basically donated all my UFOs, but I did keep 2. I promptly forgot about those 2 until recently. Be nice to actually get it done! Maybe this year?

I hope you have a very happy new year :)
