Ambitious or afflicted...

So I took a few minutes this morning and made a list of all my WIPs. I believe I will change my statement from GOAL to AMBITION for 2012. Wow, I did not realize how many projects that I have partially worked. So as not to set myself up for disappointment or failure I will make an ambitious effort to whittle down my list of WIPs. I feel like a magpie attracted to a new shiny project, ooo look at those colors, love that designer, etc, etc.

Here is my WIP:

Brucella - Christmas Time (my St. Nick)
Teresa Wentzler - Fruit Bell Pull
Betsy Ross's house
Raise the Roof - Witchy Washy
Prairie Schooler - Village
Prairie Schooler - Merry Christmas cabin
Celebrations of Needlework class- The Pearl Sampler
Teresa Layman - The Bunny Run-Around
MB - Squirrel
My Winter House
Whitefish Bay
BoaF - 2011 mystery stitch

And now I have started the Hawk Run Hollow - Christmas

I know I have two baby samplers to complete by February/March and I need to start my 2nd cousin's Bent Creeks - Down on the Farm; count them, this will be my third farm book. But at least I have a year and a half to get that done, before he is old enough to enjoy it. And I believe there will be another wedding sampler in my future. Whose got time to blog, I need to get my needle in gear! But I know that what ever I get accomplished I will be enjoying my stitching time.

This year has a lot in store for us already, our daughter leaves for the Navy on January 23rd to basic training in Illinois and then on to A-school in San Antonio for 6 months. So I know we will be planning a trip to see her. My hubby turns 40 this year, so big plans there. His parents and grandmother are planning a visit in the fall, with an excursion to Quebec City for an overnight stay. Was hoping to get a stitching get away squeezed in there somewhere, probably a long weekend with Karri. I need to get a S-n-B trip in the works, it's been too long.

Alright enough blogging, got to get back to stitching and get some xxx done!

Keep on stitching. P.J.

I just give my WIP a quick glance every now and again. :) To be fair, I do try and pull something from the pile to finish once a month. I'm always surprised at how close I am to finishing some of them. Good luck with your list - I'm looking forward to seeing your stitching in the coming year. :)
