My Goals for 2011

maybe a little too optimistic....as always ;)

Did somebody say I have to pick 15 WIP's? I picked a few more and I am embarrassed having to admit that there are "a few" more....anyways, I spent a while taking pictures.
Finally all together there are 21 I picked out of my pile:


Here the ones I would like to make some progress on:


1. Carriage House Samplings - Black Horse Inn barely started, even had to frog most of what I stitched.

2. Cross Eyed Cricket, Inc. - Skeleton Crewstarted about 2 years ago


3. Heaven and Earth Designs - Real Snow Job, A not more than a start either. Not even 1 page out of...???...28 or so...


4. Rosewood Manor Designs - And A Forest Grewmaybe 1/4 to 1/3 done


5. Victoria Sampler - Heirloom Homecoming Sampler accessory pack rustic Don't know why I don't do any stitching on it. It is a lot of fun but needs some attention I sometimes don't have any more after work




And these are the ones I would love to finish:



1. Acufactum - Findus the Painter. I started this when Lisa was about 2 years old...I better hurry now otherwise she will be too old for it



2. Atalie - La Vie en Bleu. So many special stitches - so much fun. I just somehow didn't order enough of the silks. Should probably order some extra stuff to make it worth ordering in France. LOL




3. Blue Ribbon Designs - Peppermint Twist Started this as an SAL on a special Peppermint Twist SAL blog....
4. Dahlbeck - Crazy Christmas Tree Row. Not a big project. I think, I started this some time in 2006



5. DMC - Tulip. Started long, long time ago....



6. Drawn Thread - Autumn Arbor

7. Drawn Thread - The Birth Band Started this when I was in the hospital in June 2007, just before we came to Canada



8. Drawn Thread - Toccata Two So beautiful....


9. Haandarbejdets Fremme - Gerda Bengtsson - Thistle. I absolutely love thistles...



10. Jardin Prive - My Lady's Quaker. Started in 2009. I made color changes and did not write down what I am using - have to find the right brown now...



11. Jeannette Douglas Designs - Take Time To Quilt



12. Little House Needleworks - Quilting. Should be a quick finish.



13. Permin of Copenhagen - Sampler 1852 HH21168 If I rememeber right, I started it in 2001 or 2002. It is massive, stitched on 28ct linen...


14. Plum Street Samplers - Rubie Owl`s Sampler

15. Shepherds Bush - Into the Night. Started some time in 2010


16. Victoria Sampler - Christmas Treasures Sampler. Started in August 2007

They are all very beautiful WIPs. Good luck with your challenge! Hopefully you will make a big dent in your WIPs this year. :)

Oh Bine, there are some WIPs that I also have as WIPs!
I love Fremme, too especially Gerda Bengtsson's designs!!
I love some kits, but have never stitched them yet!
I hope I also can finish them, too!
