Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

January Plans

I realized today I didn’t share my plans for 2013 beyond the WIPocalypse and Theme-a-licious posts.

Granted, that does make up the bulk of my stitching plans, but I do have a few other things to work in.

As in 2012, I’m starting the year with 10-hr rotation.  I have six “slots” identified to work thru for the first round and will be working them in no set order.  I also work two slots in parallel thanks to having two timers 😉  I think that approach alone is what kept the rotation going as long as it did last year!

  • Rosemarkie by Long Dog Samplers
  • Bluebell by Mirabilia (new start – SAL)
  • Christmastide at Holly House by The Scarlett House
  • Sampler Aux Bouquets by Jardin Prive (new start – SAL)
  • Stars for the New Millennium (SAL)
  • DH’s Smalls

The last item is a result of DH asking for a few small pieces for his cube at work.  He has his penguin from last year, but he needed a few more items.  I pulled out a dozen options from my “smalls” bucket (and could have pulled many many more) and he narrowed it down to six which I will work thru in that last slot.  None should be 10 hours, so it will pretty much assure at least one finish per round!

I’m hoping to finish at least two rounds of the above this month.  Given the first two items are WIPocalypse pieces and the first four meet the Theme criteria (Garden or Flower designs) for this month, I’m starting off pretty well!

As of today, I’ve completed 10 hours on Rosemarkie:

…and the first 10 hours on Bluebell (she’s on white Belfast linen):

I’ve also gotten DH’s first small going.  It’s Edinburgh Castle from Textile Heritage:
