All My Acres – April Goals

Joe:  Hello Stitch Fans!!  Wow.  Four weeks turned into a few more.  Hey Fred!  How ya been? 

Fred: I’m good, Joe.  Been keeping busy.

Joe: Oh? Anything of interest to the readers?

Fred: No.

Joe: Oh. Well, then, let’s get right to it! I suppose we should start with a recap of February.  Can you flip back the calendar and remind the readers of the plans?

Fred: Sure…..

For February, we had a few goals:

1 – Finish the Chewy Panther socks.

Joe: A moment of silence is in order, I think.  That project simply wasn’t meant to be.


Fred: Next on the list:

2 – Finish Mill Hill Winter Wonderland

Joe: Hmmm… another miss.  I guess that blue on blue just did her in.

Fred: I thought I heard some muttering about the fabric and something about “tiny holes”.  Maybe, related?

Joe: Could be.  Though have you seen some of the stuff she works on lately? None of the holes are very big! 

Fred: Well, the next goal had a different result…

3 – Start/Finish Pine Mountain February Band for DH for Valentine’s

Joe: Yes! Started. Finished. Skipped the t-shirt.

Fred: And last, but not least….

4 – Select the next WIP for finishing out of the overflowing WIP box.

Joe: One would have thought this was the simplest of all.

Fred: Ain’t that the truth, Joe.

Joe: Well, forget the past! It’s April and that means we can move on to brighter and greener pastures!

Fred:  Uhhh…sure.  Anyway, this month’s list doesn’t look bad.  At least we’ve got a full 30 days.

1 – Start/Finish April Pine Mountain kit

2 – Start/Finish Susan’s Mira RR

Joe: Two solid goals.  And definitely workable.  I think I spotted the Mira working copy and a pile of floss this afternoon.

Fred: Probably.  Baseball season has started, too, and you know what that means….

Joe: Hot dogs and apple pie??

Fred:  Not exactly.  Focused stitching time!

Joe: Oh yeah….

Fred: Do you want to see the remaining three goals for the month?

Joe:  Lay ’em on me!

Fred: Here they are:

3 – 10 hours on Greek Mandala

4 – 10 hours on Swan Lake

5 – One full pattern repeat on Helix scarf

Joe: Ambitious!  Especially if she has to make another NY business trip.  And the job has definitely kicked in to high gear in the last few weeks.  Oh, and don’t forget all the new book releases that have arrived on the doorstop lately…..

Fred: That’s all for this month’s show.  See you all next month with the results!

Joe:….and her new iPhone and that Angry Birds game.  Do you think she’ll get hooked on Words with Friends, too?

Fred:  Hey, Joe?  Don’t discourage her before she’s even gotten started this month.  She’s got decent time management skills….

Joe: Well, yeah, but that Crafty ADD is a killer….

Fred: True that….

  1. I love the play by play Annette! Good luck on your goals!

  2. Should I giggle now, or do you want me to wait until the end of the month? Notice, if you will, that I have completely given up on goals (and blogging, it appears) this year. I have succumbed to Stitchers ADD, my very own special flavor of Crafty ADD. I do admire your bravery in attempting goals. Hope you hit better than .500!

  3. Angry Birds is eeevil.


    That is all.
