Stitch to Finish

I thought about joining in the 15 Day Challenge, but with the amount of UFO's I have it just did not seem right. Not only that I tend to be a "I'm going to stitch this one" at whim type. So I am going to set up a small plan and see if I can stick to it.


  1. Stitch only UFO's, nothing new.
  2. Gather and organize those finishes that need to be finished off or framed.
  3. Finish off 8. Get 2 framed.
  4. Organize stitching stuff (this will be on-going, till I get it right *LOL*)

I do have plans for the rest of the year, but will see how January goes. I already broke #1 with a traditional New Year's Day start, but it's small. My plans include using up my DMC collection some colors I have 3-5 times over. Some I know I will never use, but I think they will make cute little fobs or biscornus. That idea will take some planning and I'm still thinking it out.

In the meantime this is the first UFO I pulled out to work on. You'll notice it says 2009.

I will post the others as I pull them out of hibernation.

I love your January goals, I'm always one to try to finish up projects if I can.

I always put the year in last, because just never know when you're actually going to finish it, lol. :)

It sounds like you know what you want to accomplish in January and they all seem doable. Of course we all know the best laid plans and all that. :o) Now you do have to share your New Year's start, whatchoo stitchin'?
