This year, you won't find a new start here today. I know there are people starting a BAP or 15 or 31 or 365(!) new pieces this year, and I wish you all great good luck!
Instead, I've got things to finish...according to my records forty six pieces. I know, it's nothing compared to some of you, and it's lots compared to others of you. It's a great number for me; it gives me lots of choices. But I'd like some of those choices to be hanging on the wall!
I'm going to use the "Molly Rotation" where I focus on 10 pieces for three days each over the course of every month (except March and November) to try to complete some of the things I've started over the last few years. I'm not calling a number this year. I'm going to stick to my rotation and see where I get.
Starting from my lists (see pages "Debbie's UCJC" and "Works in Progress") I made a list of things I really wanted to complete this year. They were the first six projects I chose: Blackbird, Tis the Season; Shepherd's Bush, Mary's Stocking; SB, Christian's Stocking; SB, Sadie's Stocking; Midsummer Night Designs, Our Souls; Homespun Sampler, Waldorff. Then I need to stitch an anniversary sampler for the dude, so I added that (as yet, unchosen). Then I looked at some of the medium sized pieces from the list and I was at 26 pieces when I needed 10. I shuffled around, hemmed, hawed, and considered.
Here's the plan:
- Waldorff, Homespun Sampler
- Hawaiian Santa, Mill Hill
- Lighthouse, Bent Creek
- Our Souls, Midsummer Night Designs
- Greenland Santa, Mill Hill
- Anniversary Sampler
- Winter Row, Bent Creek
- Sadie's Stocking, SB
- Small #1
- Tis the Season, Blackbird
I can't wait to make the rounds and see what you're planning!
Happy New Year!
