Mid-Year Assessment - Just a few days late

Every year, at the end of June, I assess my progress on my annual goals.  Most years this is a salutary experience.  This year, not so much!  

So let's take a look at the 2013 goals and my progress thus far:

  • 01. My Own Crazy Challenge: work on unfinished class pieces from 2005-date.  I have worked on the Mystic Seaport Stitcher's Hideaway Projects but have not yet finished them.
  • 02. Complete three BAPs: TW's Woodland Angel Stocking for Liam and The Woodland Maiden Stocking for Piper.    I have worked on Liam's stocking, though not nearly as often as I should have.  Piper's stocking will have to wait till next year since I'll be lucky if I finish Liam's this year.
  • 03. Limit new starts to one for every two UFO/WIPs completed.  My new starts currently outnumber my finishes.
  • 04. Stitch a few more Heart ornaments for the Anniversary-Valentine's Day tree.  Not yet.
  • 05. Stitch one ornament a month from the 2006 Indy Town Square SAL.  So far only one finish.
  • 06. Limit stash purchases to fabric, fiber and tools needed to complete charts on hand.  I have already bought two charts this year and am planning on ordering three more that aren't even on my current wish list sidebar.
  • 07. Continue to blog regularly, aiming for every other day.  With no posts at all in May and only five posts in June, this is pretty much a wash out.
  • 08. Make an effort to catch up on sewing and framing finishes.  Seventeen finishes thus far.  There are still many more awaiting my attention but this is a good start.
  • 09. Inventory and declutter existing stash.  Not yet.
  • 10. Change EGA membership.  Not yet.

     Lot's more red than blue, so not an overwhelming success so far.  But the year is not over and hope springs eternal.
