July Wrap Up

Usually I'm a lot more on top of this, but I was still in Canada on the last day of July. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. (And thanks for all your comments on our travelogue.)

July's Goals:
  • Shining Star, SamSarah (finish)--I didn't get any further with this project. I thought I worked on it while we were in Canada but it doesn't look like I did! {sad trombone}
  • Tis the Season, Blackbird--I took a few stitches on this one on the plane...when I was awake. (And last time.)
  • Wisteria Snowman, Shepherd's Bush--I stitched a bit on this in the car ride from the Newark* airport to home. (And last time.)
  • Small--I don't know why I think every ornament is a small. I spent over a week--with lots of stitching time dedicated to this--and it's still stitched let alone beaded.

August Goals:
  • Charland’s Stocking, Shepherd's Bush--If I'm giving my nieces stockings for Christmas, I've got to get going on the stitching. They only take about three weeks, so I should have plenty of time. But I also thought I was finishing Shining Star last month {eye roll}.
  • Light House, Bent Creek
  • Small (smaller small than last month!)
*Yeah, Newark. Philadelphia doesn't have that great an airport. When I tried to fly Air Canada out of Philly, they were going to put us on a bus to Newark. I thought I'd save myself some headache, heartache, and dosh.

One advantage of never going anywhere - I do get lots of stitching done!

Good luck with this month's goals.

A new month - fresh start and energy!

Linda said...

Lovely stitching Nikki. Your goals seem doable.

You've just reminded me about my ''tis the season. Kitted but not started, I think it's time to pull it out. Your goals don't seem crazy, fresh start!

Julie said...

Good luck with your plans for this month.

Bea said...

Your August goals seem very doable, but then life has a way of throwing in unexpected hiccups, doesn't it?

Carol said...

I'm always so amazed by those of you who set monthly goals--I don't seem to be organized enough to do that (other than stitching an ornament each month)... It is so hard to get much stitching done when you're traveling. I'm off to another wedding in NY today so there goes that weekend! Best of luck with your August goals.

I'm in the same boat- always think I'll get more caught up on a trip than I do. At least you got some progress in there- good job on that! And on thinking ahead about Christmas stuff.
