All My Acres – Goals

:: tap tap tap ::

Joe:  Is this thing on?  Fred?  Are you there?

Fred: Yup, I’m here.

Joe:  Whew… glad you got the text.

Fred: What text?

Joe: Didn’t you get Annette’s text asking us to post the goal review?

Fred: Nope.

Joe:  Then….ummm….. why are you here?

Fred:  I’m always here, Joe.

Joe:  :: pause ::  Ok, then.  Anyway, I got the update, so how about reminding the readers what the May goals were?

Fred: Sure thing….

  1. Start/Finish May Pine Mountain kit
  2. Start/Finish next Mira RR
  3. 10 hours on Greek Mandala
  4. 10 hours on Swan Lake
  5. Second pattern repeat on Helix Scarf

Joe: Ok, based on her text, here’s the update:

  1. Yes
  2. Half
  3. Yes
  4. No
  5. No

Fred: A bit cryptic.  I guess that means she accomplished the Pine Mountain kit and the Greek Mandala hours, started the Mirabilia RR design and didn’t make the last two.

Joe: Wow.  You are good, Fred.  I suppose those Stash Cams you put in recently really help.

Fred: Maybe.  The one in the garage only works when the light is on, though.

Joe:  I suppose that makes sense.  Hey!  Look here.  There’s a picture of the Greek Mandala progress:

Fred: Nice.

Joe:  So, Annette didn’t leave us any hints for June goals.  Maybe we should make up a few for her.

Fred: Ok.  Let me consult the Stash Cam by her stitching chair to see what is in the pile.  I see the Mirabilia RR….. I think that’s a good first goal.

Joe:  Good call.  She made good progress on Greek Mandala, let’s keep that on the list this month.

Fred: She finished the June Pine Mountain kit, but did you notice we never saw January’s?  I think she needs to catch up this month.

Joe:  A little cool stitching in a warm month.  Great idea.  Hey, is that Spring Queen I see hidden away next to the chair?  How about 10 hours on that this month?

Fred: I think we should give her a non-stitching goal, too.  You know she’s been working a lot lately, a little escapist reading would be a good idea.  That book shelf over on the right hasn’t changed much in the last few weeks.

Joe:  Sounds like a plan.  Here’s where we ended up:

  1. Finish/Mail Mirabilia RR
  2. Greek Mandala – 10 hours
  3. Start/Finish January Pine Mountain Kit
  4. Spring Queen – 10 hours
  5. Finish one book on Currently Reading Shelf

Fred: A good mix.  Are we done?

Joe: I think so!  See you next month, Stitch Fans!

Fred: psst… Joe. 
Joe: Yeah?
Fred:  Do you think she’ll let us come back after creating goals for her?
Joe: Sure.  What’s the worst that can happen?  Oh wait…. don’t answer that.
Fred:  Good call.

  1. That gave me a good laugh. Greek Mandala is gorg. I need to see some more Swan Lake though!!

  2. You’re so funny!! Thanks for the laugh 🙂 Your Greek Mandala is looking gorgeous!

  3. OOOOO, lovin’ the Greek! And, maybe I should borrow Fred and Joe to make some goals for me. I’ve pretty much punted the ones I set at the beginning of the year and have been drifting aimlessly for a while now.

  4. I love Joe and Fred! It’s good to see them again.

    Also, could you tell me again how you made the thread holders for Greek Manda? I’m anxious to try making some of my own this week. 🙂

    Annette, I haven’t been to your blog in a long time. Your forma was inspired. I chuckled all the way through it. Your Greek Mandala is beautiful. I look forward to seeing your progress on your other projects. Are you still posting on the BBs?
