Crazy Challenge Day 12 and Some Stitching Goals


Saturday saw me starting my 12th project for 2013, I picked something just a little bigger than an ornament since it was the weekend.  I was out and a about a bit so I didn't get as much done on it if I had stayed home all day, but that's okay.  I can't always be a stitching hermit!


This chart was a gift to me quite a few years ago, finally I've gotten around to start it, I'm really enjoying the colours in this so far!

Last year I got out of the habit of sharing my stitching goals with you each month.  Actually I got out of the habit of setting them ... feel free to join me this year!  I find it really helps me to focus my stitching each month!

So here we go for 2013...

Love the chart so colourful and good start. I like the goals, I started great last year and then dwindled off, I may give it a go again this year as your right, it does focus you more.

I have always loved that pattern and it's in my stash as well. I've always enjoyed seeing what your goals are and if you reached them.

I never stopped setting monthly goals but I have started being far more realistic about them in the past year. It looks like setting fewer and more manageable goals is a trend. Your current list looks considerably shorter than some of the ones I remember from the past.

I admire stitchers who can set and achieve goals Dani, I'm such a butterfly when it comes to stitching and knitting.

Your progress looks great to me! Goals are a great idea but like you I fall out of the habit of setting/following them!

I stitched that one a few years ago and loved it. The colors are so much fun and you made a great start.

It is always nice having something to work towards. I set myself a goal every stitching session.
