July 2 marks the halfway point to the year. It is a good time to take stock of my overall goals from January.
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.First up, the smalls. I do have six even though I only posted to the SAL five times: January, February, March, April, May, June.
Here's the plan:
I've signed up again for the Smalls SAL, and my goal is to come out with twelve new smalls. (I think I can!)
- 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
As for the rotation, April and May were pretty abysmal. I spent April recovering from Craft Month; in early May I was stitching a graduation gift and in late May I was travelling (with some projects not on the list!). But I did do a couple of solid months of rotation stitching, and finished Hawaiian Santa, Lighthouse, the anniversary sampler, Winter Row, and Sadie's Stocking. I also started and finished a graduation gift.
I've already finished as many pieces as I did last year! What will the next half of the year bring?
