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. That’s one vice I can’t give up. 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.
Mele Kalikimaka by Monsterbubbles — Complete stitching. (This is small, but over one and tedious. I need the incentive to finish.)
** Stitching completed on July 14, 2018 **
Water Wonderland by Joan Elliott — Make significant progress on, if not complete, stitching. (This gift is so long overdue that I’m sure the recipient has completely forgotten about it.)
** Failed. Didn’t touch it **
Leilani the Hula Dancer by Nora Corbett — Complete stitching
** Stitching completed on June 17, 2018 **
Bonsai and Buddha by Dimensions — Make significant progress on stitching. (I like this piece and would like to rescue it from my long-standing WIP pile.)
** Failed. Some stitching completed, but nothing significant **
Fairy Moon by Mirabilia — Make some progress on stitching. (Another long-standing WIP.)
** Failed. Pulled out and re-kitted, but no stitching completed **
Teresa Wentzler – Sun Dragon (Turquoise) — Send to Jill Rensel, along with his purple brother, for framing in 2018?
** Forwarded to 2019 goals **
Complete stitching on at least 8 Just Nan designs in my stash. This should help me to work through my extensive Just Nan stash.
** Nine projects completed **
Knock out some other WIPs, if possible.
** Textile Heritage Collection – Fuchsias Scissor Keep **
– Daydreams Petite in Glass – Crystal Creation
– Hermanson Hardanger – Russian Inspired Ornament #2
