August Goals and New Starts

I know its been a few days since I posted! After I finished Moonlight Guardian I decided to go ahead and start a new project. Well, lets say I fell in love! I just couldn't put down my new start... or my latest book "Twilight" by Stephenie Myer. So I kinda fell off of the face of cyber space for awhile! Ooops!

Unfortunately we all have to come back to reality eventually. In the case of my book, I finished reading it last night (and will be picking up the next book New Moon tomorrow). When it comes to stitching... well vacations unfortunately always have an end and I must go to work in the morning. I really don't want to go back to work at all! There's so much to do and I'm not sure if I'm going to get it all done before the start of the new school year!

I'm very late in setting my goals for August!

July Re-cap :

Finish Double Flip-Its - YES
Finish Fair & Square rd. 8 -YES
Stitch an ornament - YES
Finish Moonlight Guardian (being ambitious) - Almost!!!

August Goals :

Finish Moonlight Guardian
Stitch an ornament
Work on Blackstone Fantasy Garden
Work on Paradigm Lost

Here are my two new starts, on Thursday after finishing Moonlight Guardian I started Blackstone Fantasy Garden by Ink Circles. I'm stitching it on 28ct Opalescent Lugana using Carrie's Threads (called for in the design).


My second start, which I started this evening is the 1992 Prarie Schooler Santa stitched over one on 25ct Potato Lugana using DMC cotton.
