Here is Flocking to Knit, stitched to completion Sunday morning. It turned out I wasn't able to use the buttons from JABCo as they were far too large for this piece. It was a simple project, just a little more time-consuming than I expected. It's all those solidly stitched blocks of color. I began the piece on November 13 and finished on November 23. So, yes, it took 10 days to stitch a piece that is less than 5 inches square.
I immediately started the Fish Market. I am hoping to knock this one out in just a few days since it is a little less dense than the wool shop. Once finished, it will make the 12th Town Square ornament stitched this year and the 30th in the series that I have stitched. There are only 12 more left in the series: that's one for each month in 2015 ... if I choose to stitch them all. There are three that don't really interest me. But it's nice to know that at least one of my 2014 goals will have been totally and completely met. Though, now that I think of it, I met another annual goal by stitching four heart ornaments this year. The remaining goals fall into two categories: 1] goals on which I have made some progress though not as much as I might have wished and 2] goals on which I have made little or no progress.
I am hoping to have time to stitch the Prairie Schooler Year Round ornaments for November and October over the holidays as well. And then it will be back to serious stitching, a rotation plan and renewed energy and enthusiasm [at least. I hope so].
