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


  1. shhh I won't tell about the forgotten WIP's. Best of luck with the ornies and once you start finishing you'll be surprised how other ideas pop into your head and seeing lots of other's ornies will help to.
    Good on you with the list and no matter how big or small it gives you an aim for the month. I love my list.

  2. Good luck with the goals, Sherry. :)

  3. Great goals. Looking forward to seeing what you achieve this month!
