As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

2015 Goals

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for such a lovely welcome back. Im really glad to be back blogging. Life is so busy its great to have an escape. So on to 2015's goals... After a fairly miserable attempt at 2014 where despite the goals seeming realistic at the time - they clearly weren't!

As I will be doing the Internship until September I'm setting just a few goals.

  • Progress on Anchor Sampler
  • 3 Blackwork pieces- Star, Lady from WOXS and Bird Song
  • 12 Cover Kits - any 12 from the 100 or so I have!!! 
  • Crochet an Ami 
  •  Progress on Hexagon quilt
  • Autumn Swap - almost done!!
  • Winter Swap - not started, due end of February 
  • Fabric box from NEC
  • 2 Lizzie Kate charts - both snipitts, cross stitcher in residence and the other is work, trust, pray. 
  •  2 baby blankets - 1 ASAP and one for July 
  •  UFO's from the basket - x 4 - Japanese Garden, Keep Calm, Donald Duck and Gardeners.
I could carry on for ages but then the list becomes an epic on par with Ben Hur. I think that is achievable if I stop there. I've not put on the travelling box and things like birthdays as I didn't want it to become a timetable too much. So here are the progress pics and some of the projects.

This is where I am at with the sampler and my quilt

These are two of the blackwork kits, both were from Steph, one for my birthday, one for Christmas. 

This is the pin flair box kit and the 2 fabrics I chose for it. Not the best photo as the fabric is much more vibrant. 

Lastly the 4 UFO's. As you can see they're not big at all! 

Wish me luck!

Hopefully I'll be back very soon with my first 3 finishes!!!


  1. Good luck with all your goals - I can't believe you have got so many when you are already doing an internship!

  2. Cant wait to see how you get on with the box, we are supposed to having a go at one of those at my Thursday craftshare group. Love the birdie blackwork!
    Good luck with your plans.

  3. Wow - great goals - can hardly wait to hear and see your progress

  4. That's a great list of goals - good luck x

  5. Great choices. I love the blackwork one with the bird. Good luck with them


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
