Halfway There

We are officially halfway through the year. (How did that happen, amiright?) It's time to take a deep breath and see how I am doing on the things I set out to do in January.

My goals for the year:
  • Start 31 projects in Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge--I did it!
  • Stitch every day. --I fell down on this one in March. Damn, March! But I've definitely picked back up recently.
  • Complete stitching twelve pieces (in addition to the smalls)--I've done a whopping TWO finishes, the girls' samplers. I'm nearly there on the dude's anniversary sampler. That makes this goal 25% complete.
  • Stitch more smalls--Three so far this year, which is more than none but less than the six I had hoped for. {Bee Keeper, Slow Poke, October Sampler}
  • Craft Month with a new twist--It was a good one, I think.
  • Finish-finish 12 stitched pieces--March helped, and even though I didn't reach my lofty goal of a finish every day, I hit the mark on this one.
  1. Scissor Fob
  2. Tuck Pillow
  3. Jar Topper
  4. Hoop
  5. Bell Pull
  6. Mounted Flat Ornament
  7. Flat Fold
  8. Box Mount
  9. Tin Pin
  10. Applique
  11. Beaded Edge Ornament
  12. Scissor Keep
  • Hire a new cleaner. --She started in April with a "spring cleaning" and coming home was a joy!
If I redouble my efforts to stitch every day, I'm sure I can complete stitching more projects even if 25% is < 50%.

How are you doing on your annual goals?

You are doing very well on working toward your goals! My stitching goal for this year is to finish some of the projects that have gotten "stuck". So far I've finished seven of them and am making progress on #8. Hard to believe it is July already!

Well done! I am failing with my goals but have been distracted by other stuff!

Wendy said...

sounds like you're doing well on your goals! Especially the finish-finishing. I do miss having a cleaner...

Alice said...

It never ceases to amaze me how time slips away. You are doing so well on your goals! You have pretty lofty goals for a busy person after all. If you shoot for the stars you just might reach the moon.

Your doing great with your goals Nikki. I'm not a goal person.

Some > None
So well done, there. :)

Great work on your goals. My main one was my 15 in 15 which I have successfully complete 7.6 projects so over half way (the .6 is the Hallowe'en Cubes).
I have also stuck with Stitch from Stash and all my other blogging challenges including the DUCJC.
