Annual Goal Updates

It looks like I’m overdue on a few annual goal updates. I didn’t even bother to make stitching goals for 2021, but here are the updates for 2020 and 2022:

2020 Stitching Goals

As usual, this year’s goal is to stitch from stash, with minimal outlay for new designs and DMC that needs to be replenished, with the exception of Just Nan releases and any Mirabilia/Nora Corbett designs that may be discontinued that I don’t already have. Otherwise, I want to avoid buying fabric, specialty fibers and embellishments, where possible.

Water Wonderland by Joan Elliott — Complete stitching and present to recipient.
Success! Completed, framed and presented to my mom for her 70th birthday.

Bonsai and Buddha by Dimensions — Make significant progress on stitching.
** Failure. Didn’t touch it.

Fairy Moon by Mirabilia — Make some progress on stitching. (Another long-standing WIP.)
** Failure. Didn’t touch it.

Arezzo by Nora Corbett — Make some progress on stitching.
** Partial success? Touched it once.

Complete stitching on at least 6 Just Nan designs in my stash. This should help me to work through my extensive Just Nan stash.
** Partial Success – Four designs completed **
– Gingerbread Angel Mouse
– Gingerbread Jingle Mouse
– Gingerbread Mrs. Santa Mouse
– Gingerbread Santa Mouse

Knock out some other WIPs, if possible, like:
– Daydreams Petite in Glass – Crystal Creation
– Hermanson Hardanger – Russian Inspired Ornament #2
** Failure. Didn’t touch either or any other WIPs
