Starting over yet again (WIPocalpse 2018)

2017 and into 2018 was/is a period of starting over yet again. So this blog becomes another in the line of re-starts in my personal life. My biggest goal is to stitch on a consistent basis on my many projects both not yet started and ones I have going.

Projects I'd like to get thru (top 3 and maybe 5) or touch this year:

1. at least 1 round of ornaments for my family and friends
2. Finish L*K ornaments
3. Finish L*K mystery Christmas from 2 years ago
4. Santas
5. Love with Capital L
6. Gift of Peace
7. Apache wedding

Think that is a nice start and if I get mojo and bug back, then more might even happen too!

Wish me luck!

New Starts

Well another year has started and last year I lost steam on a lot of levels.

 I'm hopeful that this year things will majorily improve and change.

 These are my ideal goals this year:

 My stitchy goals needed to improve too as I spent too much time on FBook and not enough on other things.

 1. Get my mojo and rhythm back to stitch ( the past year started great and died quickly)
2. Finish L*K mystery SAL
3. Start, stay up with and finish the AAN mystery halloween SAL
4. Finish Mom's present from last year mom's day
 5. Work on several major BAPs to get them closer or done

 My non-stitchy goals

 1. learn to crochet and actually get 1 blanket done
2. have a steady paying job that I don't have issues with people etc.
3. get rooms cleaned out and organized
   a. closet(hall) & dining room table
   b. blue room (M's study room and my eventual craft room)
   c. my office
   d. storage areas (room and under middle level steps)
   e. bedroom closet f. get all others cleaned and maintained
 4. Make sure M is set for Senior year and beyond

March 2013 IHSW Review

This picture is the after picture from the weekend. I forgot the before weekend one but can explain where I left off. The small wording below the L was through the N. The L was fully in and the top left side of the O was done. Everything else was done over the weekend. It was a very productive weekend!

IHSW Weekend

We are in the midst of IHSW weekend and I got to spend quite a bit of time yesterday and plan a few hours today between my college work to stitch more. The picture that is in a previous post is pretty close to my start point. I had just added the start of my top left portion of the o in the top Love. The after weekend post will come tomorrow sometime. IHSW is located here

IHSW February 2013 Edition

This is the after stitching from the IHSW weekend. I had to frog out my entire top border and the full L because of a miscount on the right side border. Below is the previous picture prior to the frogging.

WIPocalpse posting January 2013

I have pretty much posted all of progress as I have gone along with stitching. I have put more into my Santa but won't post it again for a bit. I have a few plans for February but I am also starting up another class and have a potential bite for a job so we will see what happens.

IHSW- January 2013 post

I don't have a before picture as there was only like 10-15 stitches in it before the weekend; but the picture above is after the IHSW weekend stitch time that I could get between a major family issue that came up. This is the Blue Santa referred to in the Turtle trot SAL also.
