15 new project challenge/update






Hi all,
So far so good. Today is the 6th of January. That means sixth new start today....which I have already started for today.....
Actually, I am having to break the pattern a little bit. Rumor has it we will be getting 3 little munchkins real soon......and this grandma KNOWS how little stitching time there is when they are staying with us......
So.....to be able to keep up with the 15 new starts in 15 days, I have worked ahead. I have actually started #8 this morning. This way, if the boys do come, if I don't have time to stitch some days...which is most likely, I can at least know in my heart that I have already started them & feel good about it...
I am the kind of stitcher who finishes what they start. I have at some point in time, finished each project that I have started.
So, without jabbering any more....I present to you day 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7. I am going to do more on day 8 before I put it away to start day 9.
All of these are Little House Needleworks Monthly Samplers. I have no clue how the pictures will show up, even if I post them in order.
I have done a random number generator for the people who were interested in the HOPE chart PIF. Jennifer, it picked you!!!! Please email me your mailing info & I will get it in the mail to you right away....

Wow - you have really got your act together. I can somehow see me having 15 starts in one month but not purposely! LOL I wish you much success with your challenge and I KNOW you'll get everyone of them finished perfectly! WAY TO GO!!!

They all look great. I understand your working ahead. I hope your little triplets get to visit soon. Keep up the beautiful work!

Good job being so organized!! I'll look forward to seeing these worked on in the rest of the year. Enjoy the triplets!!! We just had our "one" over for a couple hours last night and she wears us out! LOL

You really do seem to have things well sorted Shari. That was a good idea to get ahead - I can imagine you won't do much stitching when the boys are with you. All these new pieces are looking very interesting.

Marcy said...

Shari! You are doing a magnificent job!!

I know your time will be limited when the boys arrive, but this is a great start!

Can't wait to see your progress!!!

Hugs,

Shari, you are being perfectly on track. I also "cheated" a little bit and started my first project two days before the new year started. So I made up for the one day when I was away and didn't have time to stitch, and for the other day when I continued stitching on the project started the day before. I just couldn't put it down. But from next week on I'll be back to work and maybe I'll have the rest of my new projects started every other day only. We'll see.
