Assessing November and Setting December Goals

    These were the NOVEMBER GOALS 
  2012 WIPs: Concentrate solely on TW's Woodland Angel,  making as much progress as possible.  Hurricane Sandy and the accompanying power outages interfered with my momentum on this project.  Losing the bulb on my OTT lamp didn't help either.  My local electrician's supply shop can't find a replacement, the on-line shop where I purxhased the lamp no longer carries the lamp which was discontinued by the manufacturer.  I have reconciled myself to the fact that I am going to have to buy a new lamp. 
   OFF-GOAL SMALLS: I completed two Stitcher's Hideaway souvenir projects.  The first was Sue Donnelly's 2012 Embellished Witch's Hat and the second was Elizabeth Design's  2007 Souvenir Needlebook.  Then I finished Mosey & Me's Book Shop and JABCo's Button Shop from the 2006 Indy Town Square series.  I also stitched Papillion Creations Moonlight Serenade, Victoria Sampler's Cardinal's Song Christmas ornament, Michael Saletta's Edwardian Elegance, Dragon Dreams' 2011 Compassion Dragon and last but not last four Christmas Cardinal ornaments by La-D-Da from the 2006 JCS issue.
   Sewing Finishes:  Get ready for Christmas.  Assemble the three Town Square SAL ornaments and the Victoria Sampler ornament.  Sew up gift totes using the appropriate finished pieces.  None.

    2010-2011 WIPs:  Embellish another area on the Encrusted Crazy Quilt Square, finish the needlebook and slip Midnight Moogies back into the rotation, even though that would put three BAPs in the rotation.
   2012 Crazy Class Project Challenge:  Continue to work on the Victoria Sampler's Mystic Smalls projects, finishing the Stitcher's Pocket and starting the fob and scissor case.  
   2012 WIPs: Finish Part II of The English Band Sampler and continue stitching TW's Woodland Angel Christmas Stocking, finishing page 7 and starting page 4.   Stitch the last three La-D-Da Christmas Cardinal ornaments.
    Town Square SAL: stitch the Fiber Shop and the Frame Shop.  
     Sewing Finishes: Try to get all the accumulated Christmas ornaments assembled and finished.

That is a real bummer about the lamp and bulb Regina. Not a cheap purchase coming up.
