NOVEMBER GOALS: I mentioned an odd slump in a post midway through the month, one in which I only wanted to stitch the most brainlessly simple pieces. It had its effect on November progress.
Christmas Gifts: Stitch a pair of tea towels, using the charts for Mint and Sage. No.
Current BAP: Work on Piper's stocking. No.
UFO/Class Project: Finally finish The English Band Sampler and then pick up work on The Mystic Smalls projects. No. though I did do a little work on the sampler.
Town Square SAL: Stitch The Sweet Shop or The Knit Shop. I stitched The Pet Store, Flocking To Knit and The Fishmonger's Shop.
New Start: Start The Dragon of the Summer Sky. This will be my last Dragon Dreams chart from stash, making the 6th chart of Jennifer's [not counting many, many freebies] that I have stitched. The next series that I will work on will be Workbasket's Quaker Animals. I have quite a few of those in stash. No. Instead, I stitched a much smaller piece, the Prairie Schooler November ornament [Turkey] from the Year Round leaflet.Sewing Finishes: Try to get another three or four projects completed. I want to concentrate on gift totes and wall hangings this month. If I catch up on the totes and wall hangings, I'll move on to throw pillows. It all depends on how long my mood for finishing lasts. I got a real rush last month as I watched the finishes stack up.
DECEMBER GOALS: Follow through on the plans for a rotation.
Monday: The English Band Sampler
Tuesday: Mint & Sage tea towels.
Wednesday: The Dragon of the Summer Sky
Thursday: Mystic Smalls
Friday: Sewing Finishes
Saturday & Sunday: get out of the stitching chair and do a wide variety of things: walk, exercise, antique, reorganize, put the garden to bed for the winter, feed and observe the backyard birds, read, visit friends and relatives, try a new restaurant, experiment with the recipes I have been downloading, host a high tea ... whatever.
