Ok, I finally got around sharing an update on my first Nora Corbett design called "Gwen" from her Bewitching Pixies series. I ordered a kit from Polstitches Designs a while ago (along with a kit for Joan Elliotts Enchanted Aurora) and decided to do some Halloween stitching.
I wanted to try something different from my usual Haeds, something smaller :D
So here is where I got:
This seems to be a nice and quick stitch so far, but after working on this for one week I noticed that I truly miss my Haeds :D Not enough confetti in this one :D
Right now Kriemhild is on my frame and ready for a row finish (go, me, go!).
I can't believe it's already the middle of October, I feel like I still have tons of things I want to accomplish in 2016. One think surely is to finish the row on Kriemhild, then I want to finish Gwen (which should be possible) and my Sheep in the Meadow (which should also be possible). I am sticking to my plan with the dog bookshelf piece, I'm doing 520 stitches per week. Then I still have like 3 projects I haven't touched in 2016 (Yule Angel, Starlight, Eternal Promise) and a few where I planned on further stitching (like Wolf Variant or Ride of the Yokai or Iris). But then there are still two and a half months left this year, so I will see what I can do.
Apart from that I am thinking about 2017. Goals don't really work for me, rotations don't really work for me, stitching without a plan ends up with me not touching a project for a whole year.
So I am think about doing a rotation at the beginning of the year. I could pick a focus piece (like Kriemhild) to work on every month for a few days and then I rotate through all my projects once. So every projects get some love during the year and once I am done with all of them (including a few new starts...) I will decide how to go on. Maybe I will stitch what I feel like for a few weeks, maybe I will start another rotation cycle some time later in the year (the first one is to take about 5 months if I want to work for a good week on everything).... I will keep you up to date =)
Happy stitching =)
