End of February Update

I've done well with my goals for February. Here they are once again:

February Goals:

Start and Complete Lizzie Kate's Time for God
Start and Complete February Ornament:  Tree theme
Continue working on All Things
Stitch every day - at least a few minutes

I did finish Lizzie Kate's Time for God
I did finish the Tree Ornament (picture below) although I didn't get it made into an ornament but I wasn't planning to.  I'll probably save them and finish them all towards the end of the year.
And I did work on All Things (picture below).  Not much progress made, but every little bit helps.
I stitched all but 4 days.  Not too bad.

I'll post March goals soon.

Here is my tree ornament:
 Here is my progress on All Things....

I know I'm late.  The sickness has spread to the rest of the house.  We have all been down for the count.

I did manage to stitch some this past weekend.  Here's Adore Him from Plum Street Samplers.  This is also my February ornament for the Christmas All Year Round group.  Not much longer and I'll be done.

And here's my TUSAL update too.

A Stitch Weekend

It's that time again IHSW!  I'm looking forward to it.  Although my husband is sick so I'm not sure how much time I will have.  I plan to either work on an ornament or continue to work on All Things.  I'll post a before and after picture Monday since I'm not sure what I'll be working on.  I hope you can join us!  If you want to read more about it or sign up please visit Joyce.

Time for God Update

I thought I would post an update on my progress. 

I'm so ready for the weekend.  I should be able to stitch quite a bit this weekend.  Hopefully you'll have a great stitching weekend too.

I need to stop surfing and goals for February

Not only do I find lots of new charts and ideas but I also find new groups.  Yesterday I found Christmas All Year Round.  I LOVE Christmas.  I'm not really good at "finishing" and was hoping that this year I could improve in that area.  I think this is the perfect way.  This is a SAL group completing an ornament each month. So I just dropped a quick email asking if I could join in the fun and Elaine said yes!!!!  I'm so excited.

I'm sure my husband will be less than thrilled.  You see he's one of the "why can't you just start one project and totally finish it before you start the next thing" people.  We made a deal that I wouldn't start more than two projects at a time.  Usually a bigger project only for home and a smaller project that I can take with me.  So you know I have All Things started from Jardin January.  And of course, it's Fangirl February now.  So I started Lizzie Kate's Time for God last night.  Sorry no picture yet.  And now I'm just tempting the peace of the household by wanting to start my February Ornament.  The theme is "tree".  I've found the pattern, but I'm going to hold off and see if I can finish Time for God quickly.  That way I'm keeping my end of the deal with only two projects started.  (Yes, I do have some UFOs but he's forgotten about those - sssshhhhh!)

I saw this last month and thought I should try it.  I saw it again today and thought maybe next month.  But then I said it's only February 2nd.  I can still do this.  I'm keeping it small since this is the first time I'm trying.  I don't want to stress myself out.

February Goals:

Start and Complete Lizzie Kate's Time for God
Start and Complete February Ornament:  Tree theme
Continue working on All Things
Stitch every day - at least a few minutes

Fangirl February

It's so difficult to choose one designer.  But I looked around at the things I've stitched recently and Lizzie Kate seems to be in the majority.  And remember my husband gave me a new Lizzie Kate chart for Christmas.  Awesome!  I will start Lizzie Kate's Time for God today.  Here's a snap of the chart.

It's something I need to remember just now too.  Hopefully stitching this will help me remain calm and trusting with recent family developments. 

Can't wait to see what everyone else will be working on!!!!
