Assessing November Goals, Setting December Goals

I am still setting fairly conservative goals for myself.  And I am still managing to overlook one stated goal each month and to substitute something off-goal instead.  This month it was a second Town Square SAL ornament, The Honey Shop, displacing The Mystic Smalls.  I don't know why I do this, probably out of sheer contrariness and orneriness!

BAPS: Finish the stitching and the sewing assembly of Teresa Wentzler's The Woodland Angel Stocking.  If possible, start Piper's stocking.  Well, I did finish Liam's stocking and I have kitted up Piper's but have barely started it.
Class Project:  Resume work on Mystic Smalls.  Not this month.
Town Square SAL: Stitch The Framing Shop.  Assemble the Fiber Shop and the Framing Shop ornaments.  Finished stitching The Frame Shop and  The Honey Shop.  No assembly as yet.
WIPs: Resume work on the English Band Sampler.  Resumed work on this during the last two days of the month.

DECEMBER GOALS: This month, in a final push to get a few more finishes done in the calendar year 2013, I'll be working on pieces that are close to completion.
BAPs: Piper's Stocking.  Although this is nowhere close to completion, having only been started in the last few days, I do want to work on it steadily.  It is my hope to have this stocking done in time for Christmas 2014 and to be well on my way to completing Rocco's stocking as well.  Wouldn't it be grand to have Rocco's stocking done by Christmas 2014, too!
Class Project: The Mystic Stitching Accessories.  The goal is to have all these projects not only stitched but sewn and assembled this month.
Town Square SAL: Stitch Milady's Tea Shoppe.
WIP's: Continue work on The English Band Sampler

As in, the entire stocking is done?! That is great!

You are a goal-oriented person, for sure! I don't bother, because I stray from them all the time. Sometimes because I am too tired to do whatever, and other times because someone has interfered with my plans--THAT happens a LOT! Hugs!

I've had a lovely catch up reds, the stocking is stunning. Live the English Band sampler too, very colourful.
Good luck with your December plans.
