I need a kind of ROTATION!!

Actually...i can say i am crazy! I started not one but few more projects. It seems whenever i came across one of the charts i have i would like to stitch someday i quickly try and kitted it up with what i have with the threads and fabric and start some stitching on it. Put it aside till i get the time to go further but how can i go further when i am always distracted by other projects???

Now, i decided to make a rotation not specifically for each day but to try and work one of the themes once in two weeks as i can't guarantee working/stitching everyday. Will start work next week after 4 weeks off.

Here are three of the new projects i started: "A Stitcher's Prayer" of LHN, Joan Elliott's charts, x'mas ornament of Blackbird Designs from JCS 2004. I went back to my listed goals end of December, copied and attach it here. This will be my guide for the rotation.

I have try and note a kind of goals for 2008, i haven't done it before. Lets see how far i can get..!
1. 5 PIF that i offered on my blog earlier this month.
2. scissor fob for January exchange

3. x'mas ornamnets & cards(atleast one each month)
4. 3 Joan Elliott's charts for the kitchen
5. start on Sarah Spence 1806 Ackworth Sampler
6. birthday cards
7. a couple of LHN charts
8. atleast 5 prairie schooler for pinkeeps
9. work on Quilt sampler (quilting)
10. a few quilt blocks for ILCS
11. work on a few UFO's Hardanger
12. ...and for a few exchanges as i am sure will join some too

While looking for the hardanger chart i had mentioned earlier i've found these two that was started a long time better try & work on these too.

Hi Elisabeth, haven't work on it yet. No, haven't seen any of the magazines these last years, really a pity as they are quite good.

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by and leaving comments. I really appreciate them all. Thanks a lot Karan for the well wishes. I felt better this morning and it was a better day than yesterday so instead of taking coffee break we(dh) took off for a walk and while we are having lunch a friend called(same one of yesterday) called if i have time to go with her for a walk. In all, i have walked nearly three hours today!!
Tomorrow, they expect a stormy weather and we are off to the mainland for the day so no walks for me.

Lol Mylene if it is not started yet then think you had better lock it away - you sound like a serial starter. Good luck with the rotation and I hope to see lots of your ufo's getting finished.

Lisha said...

You've been busy lately. I like the pinkeep and cards. Good luck woth your goals. I've started a lot of new projects lately. It's so much fun, but so much more gratifying to finish. So get busy!

Karan said...

Glad you're feeling better Mylene. :0)
Great new starts - love JE designs & these look a lot of fun. Hope the rotation works for you. Will look forward to seeing future update pics.

great proyects Mylene,good luck!

Barbara said...

Good Luck on your rotation plans and all your 2008 goals. I can sure relate to having LOTS of projects planned for this year. I seem to also be in the phase of trying to work on more projects than I am able to manage comfortably without setting up some type of stitching plan. Let's hope both of us can get a plan set up that works well for us.

Oh, I'm crazy too - it even says so in my Blogger profile now!! Shame about the hardanger mags.=( I'll have another look in Germany this summer, but the US Nordic Needle catalogue said at least the Burda ones were no longer being produced. It's a real shame.

I don't think a rotation would work for me as I'd only stitch on the days that I was supposed to work on the project I liked best!!! Yup, crazy!!

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!

Groetjes, E=)
