Half of Nothing is Nothing

I've got a bit of a tradition going to take stock on July 2, the halfway point of the year (2016, 2015, 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2007). And here we are on the first day of the second half. I think you know how this has gone...
In December, I wrote:  For 2017, I'm going to stick with the rotation again, and sign up for the Smalls SAL. Maybe this year I can get even closer to 12 smalls for the year.

  1. St Nick's Noel
  2. Christian's Stocking
  3. Our Souls
  4. Forty Seven Hearts (new, anniversary present)
  5. Love Me, Love My Dog
  6. Deruta Biscornu
  7. Lapland Santa
  8. small
  9. Ladybug, Ladybug
  10. Tis the Season
I'm also going to celebrate Craft Month with the helpful input you gave me last year. 

I have stitched no smalls, done very little on the rotation, and skipped Craft Month!

I haven't even started the dude's anniversary present! (shock, horror) (Eleven days and counting!)

So here's the new plan:
July: Forty Seven Hearts
August: Christian's Stocking
September: twins' Christmas ornaments
October: Go back to the three-day rotation (above)
November: New project every day for NaBloPoMo
December: Three-day rotation

I'm also sketching out a plan to blog twice a week. And make the rounds to you regularly as well.

I have been stamping and making jewelry. Here's a pic to hold you:


Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I do hope that Fourty Seven Hearts is the title of a design and not an intention to stitch 47 different heart designs...

I have had a hard time finding my stitching groove this year. Truly much has to do with post election stress and worry.

My Stitching Mojo has been absent since Spring...and I can't seem to get it back. You are not alone...and I think Beth is on to something, we are all in a bit of a funk since the election, and filled with stress and worry.

Good for you! A new day/ a new month! I look forward to seeing your new plan in action.

Linda said...

Looking forward to your updates Nikki.

Love the pugs & kisses card you created; sweet! I look forward to your updates.

Looking forward to your future updates. I hope your stitching mojo comes back. Mine is crazy at the moment though I haven't blogged for a while.
