My main goal for this year is to start as few projects as possible. At first I was on a total "new project ban", but then I realized that there were a few small things I'd like to start/finish and I didn't want to guilt myself.
But in the meantime, I'm still trying to plug away at WIPs/WIsPs/UFOs.
So far this/last month, I put a few stitches in my WWCKD and Thanksgiving Fairy by Mirabilia, as well as the Round Robin that I've fallen so far behind on.
I have already chosen what I want to do on the next RR (I have two more in my possession), and I know what I want to do on the last one, but I have to design it first, so I'll be doing my RRs slightly out of order.
Here is Thanksgiving Fairy! I finished her skirt and started in on her wings. I was out of town when I was working on her, and somehow the Black Coffee that is used for her boots was MIA, so I'll get to that later. Because she's so small, I bead as I go.
Here is my contribution to Kay's RR. I used the octopuses from Hands On Design's "Octopus Dance" from their Square*ology "Ahoy" series. I stripped everything down to one octopus and then flipped it and placed them next to each other. I used Weeks Dye Works Bethlehem for the main color, and Argyle Socks for the other shade. I reversed the angle of the stitching so that the varigation came out opposite on each octopus (does that even make sense? Well, you can see!)
Here is the whole RR:
January 24- Topic: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
I have all of my WIPocalypse goals listed here, and most of my pictures of pieces here.
I'm going to try to get back on "schedule" with Zodiac Mystery. It's a 12 month mystery, and I stopped stitching on it after February, so I will try to pick it back up in March.
As far as non-stitching goals, I do have two quilts I started last year that I'd like to go ahead and finish, one is Bonnie Hunter's Allietare mystery quilt, and the other is a bloomin' 9 patch that I started at my quilting store. That's about it, which isn't too bad..
