February Review and March Goals

Its the start of another month, I sware just yesterday was New Years! Boy this year is going by so fast! I have so much to look forward to in March. First is my trip to the Dominican which starts this weekend! The weekend after my return is the Knowledge and Needles Timberhouse Retreat. March 26th I'll be seeing Billy Talent in concert... I've been waiting for this for ages! The next day, its my birthday! Before I know it, we'll be hitting Easter!

February Goal Review
Stitch one ornament - yes
Finish a page on Tour des Marques - finished the whole design!
Stitch blogiversary gift - Didn't finish it

March Goals
Stitch an ornament
Pick/work on my next BAP
Stitch a gift
Finish Blogiversary gift

Now the big decision... which BAP to work on next. Perhaps your input can help me? I can't make up my mind between :


Teresa Wentzler's Celestial Dragon


Mirabila's Art Deco Spirits

What's your opinion? Neither one is further ahead than the other but they're both started.

Dani, i am going for the first one!! Although i do see you can have 4 small finishes in one great BAP in the second option...

Whatever you select, i look forward to your progess pics already, LOL

Congratulations on finishing Tour Des Marques, it looks wonderful. As for your next focus piece, Celestial Dragon. I love TW pieces and have The Castle as a wip, stitching it for one of my sisters on (cringe) aida.

Christine said...

Congratulations on your February Goals. I'd go for the dragon, he's magnificent

Jo said...

Hmmm, both are lovely, but I have to go for the TW every time!

Have a great time in the Dominican Republic

Ingrid said...

they are both very nice but the dragon is my favorite, it is beautiful! Have fun in March and enjoy your trip to the Dominican

Laural said...

Goals! Well I'm a bigger Mira fan but I like TW too. I guess it's up to whether you want to work on a festival of blends or a festival of metallics.

You know how I feel about any of the TWD's, so that would be my choice too, although the Mirabila is very pretty also. Have fun in the DR and don't forget the photos upon return.
Be always in stitches.

Julie said...

Both are nice, and both are similar colours.

Enjoy your trip.

I tend to vote for TW whatever the other options ... but the Miribilia looks interesting as well.

Carol said...

Wow, both are incredible, Dani! Hard to decide, but I guess I'll vote for TW, too.

Jo said...

Both are great...I'd vote for the mirabilia though...its so original

devonaz said...

Celestial dragon! Ann

Tama said...

If it was me, I'd would prolly work on the Mirabilia, 'cause it would be quicker to the finish (but that's just me)
They're both gorgeous! Already looking forward to piccies!

Abi said...

I love, love, LOVE Celestial Dragon. It was my first project that wasn't on Aida. It was also my first project with over one stitching on it. It took me about 330 hours to do. I'm sure you'll finish it a lot faster than I did. :)

Katri said...

My vote goes to Celestial Dragon. But it would be equally interesting to follow the progress of the Mira design!

Sally said...

They are both gorgeous Dani! Whichever you decide on I look forward to seeing your progress.

Have a fantastic trip!

Claire said...

Have a safe and wonderful trip. Can't wait to see your pics:) I'd go for the mirabilia - I've never seen it before, but I think it looks great!

Dee said...

I vote for the dragon. Both pieces are lovely, but I have a soft spot in my heart for dragons.

Anonymous said...

I think the dragon one!!! You will make either one gorgeous however!

Bette said...

definitely the dragone. He's spectacular!

Michelle said...

They are both great designs, but I would go for the TW dragon! Enjoy all your activities in March!

Casa Pearl said...

Bon voyage with your upcoming trip and be sure to share lots of photos when you get back. My vote goes to the Miribilia - such a neat design.

Lorilee said...

OOOO I could use a trip to the Dominican right now!! Have a fabulous time!
As for your BAP, I like the Mirabila design, although they are both gorgeous!

Lindsay said...

I'm biased and think you should work on Celesial Dragon

Melanie said...

Both designs are lovely, but I give a slight edge to Art Deco Spirits!

Terri said...

Great goals Dani. I think I'd go with the TW.

Karen said...

Both are beautiful, but TW wins for me!

Karan said...

Good Luck on the goals. My vote is for Deco Spirits... haven't seen that one stitched up before. :0)

Coral said...

TW every time!
