2005 Stitching progress

Okay so I am a little late with this. I have a tendency to procastinate and put things off and this was supposed to be a blog entry in January. My excuse was to be that I didn't have internet access for most of January but that doesn't really excuse February or March does it ?

Anyway as of the 1st of January 2005 I had the following projects started

TW The Storyteller
TW The Ministrel
TW Paisley Corner
TW Night
Legends of the Spellcastes
Mirabilia Autumn Queen
Mirabilia Emerald Mermaid
Dimples Le Epoch Nouveau
Chatelaine Taj Mahal garden
Chatelaine Mystery 7
Chatelaine Christmas (aka Weinachten)
Country companions bag
Pinn Chinese Goddess of Mercy
JN Barnabee's quest
LK Needle Nick
Jungle babies pillowcase
Jungle babies birth sampler
Balinese Dancer
LK Love keeps us warm
Merry stitches stocking
Newton's law The future's so bright
Geisha Bride
Quilt Afghan
WB Yeats Verse
LK Official Snow guide
3 Round robins (Wee beasties, RR 25.2, Ornament Group 8)

In total that makes 25 WIPs/UFOs plus 3 RRs. The main aim this year is to get the amount of WIPs/UFOs to below 20 by the end of the year. I'd like to finish Taj Mahal garden, the Storyteller, Autumn Queen and Le Epoch Nouveau. I would also like to finish 4 mirabilias and stitch 6 country companions designs. I would also like to have more finishes than last year (I had 65 last year).

In January I started Mystery 8 and Mini mystery H. I started and finished one ornament for the ornament RR and started a second on. I also started Dimples Viceroy butterfly for Carleen's Dimples RR. So I ended the month with 27 WIPs/UFOs plus 3 RRs. Not a good start.

February was better. I started 4 things: a Dragonfly scissor fob by CJ Lucas designs, Dimples Californian ladybug (for Caroline's Dimples RR), Mill hill holly feather tree ornament and a springtime pooh cover kit. The finishing rate was better: Dimples Viceroy butterfly and Californian lady bug were both finished (completing my involvement in the Wee Beasties RR). I also finished the Dragonfly scissorfob, the holly feather tree ornament and the Ornament RR piece that I started in January. Two other WIPs bit the dust - Mirabilia Emerald mermaid and the WB yeats verse. So I ended February with 26 WIPs/UFOs plus 2 RRs.
