Q: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
My name is Carla!
For 2018 I have decided on a small-ish rotation. In 2017 I started doing something that seems to be working for me....finishing my WIPs one at a time. That is working for me. I can work on other things, but there has to be the main focus piece WIP that gets done.
In a previous blog post I had stated that I was adjusting my progress bars, and finally came up with my rotation so we all aren't getting bored seeing the same dang things sitting there, never aging like Dorian Grey.
For the beginning of the year I'm working on the following in a rotation:
Spring (New year start which is the main focus piece)
Fire and Ember SAL (my first full coverage piece)
Unseen Things (has sat stagnant for entirely too long)
Tapestry (a new start on December 15, 2017)
Cead Mile Failte (been sitting around almost as long at Unseen Things)
Stitching Pirates Ship (My Slow Stitch Sunday piece that hasn't been touched in over a year)
My main goal is to finish all the WIPs I have in my WIP bag. As I finish one, I will put another into the rotation. I have several new starts I want to do this year but feel that it wouldn't be right to do any of them without finishing some of the oldie but goodies. Cleaning out my WIP bag is something I need to do!
I can safely say that as this first week of the year has gone by, I have only successfully stitched on one thing and that is SPRING....and then I had to rip out half of what I stitched! It makes me laugh, so all is not lost.
This is exciting for me as I really do LOVE each one of these projects! I'm looking forward to figuring out how this rotation will work and if I really can do six projects on a rotation. I've tried a rotation before and failed. I wasn't centered and didn't have as much quiet time as I do now. My new goal for 2018 is to empty my WIP bag!!
Until next time.....KEEP ON STITCHIN'!
