December goals

Setting goals for December will be easy as ABC since I hardly ever stitched this month (๐Ÿ˜ž sigh!). In the 2/3 stitching days I had I only managed to do this:

  • stitch Cozy Gingerbread Snow Globe by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery –> โ˜‘๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Š YES!!
  • keep up with Story Time Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and stitch frame 11: Little Women โค๏ธ
  • stitch part 4 of Christmas on Gingerbread Lane by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
  • stitch clue 4 of A Very Merry Christmas Town by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
  • fully finish:
    • All Hallows’ Eve
    • Sweet Tooth
    • The Bee Keeper
    • Legendary Friends
    • Cozy Gingerbread Snow Globe
    • Summer Sparkler Party –> โ˜‘๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Š YES!!
    • Christmas on Gingerbread Lane
    • A Very Merry Christmas Town
  • stitch at least two clues on The Mysterious Hallowe’en Town by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
  • work on the Cindermice Stitch Along by What Delilah Did

+ I finished something that wasn’t on the list of goals for this month: Souvenir de France/Paris in the Heart by Blackbird Designs –> โ˜‘๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Š YES!! had to be done as part of that big project I mentioned a few posts ago (more on this later).

There’s a full finish, and a pretty intricate one since it involved sewing a piece of wire onto the stitching as well as balancing a considerably heavy and spherical shaped object (look down ๐Ÿ˜‰); and I also worked on the full finish of 5 other pieces, but I have to attach the twisted cord on all of them so I cannot count them as done yet. ๐Ÿ˜ค

In other interesting news, I used up a total of 

2 [(127 x 2) + (115 x 3) + 193] = 1584 metres = 1732.28 yards 

of solid DMC threads to make twisted cords for these finishes, not bad, eh? ๐Ÿ˜œ  Remember when I said that actually (fully) finishing stuff would make me use up my absurd solid stash pretty easily? ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป

And here’s a late TUSAL report straight from The Finishing Centre:

TUSAL 11/15

Super quick copy & paste shortcut and here are my December goals:

  • finish Story Time Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and stitch frame 11 and 12: Little Women and A Christmas Carol (did someone say kawaii Scrooge?? YES!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰)
  • stitch part 4 of Christmas on Gingerbread Lane by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
  • stitch clue 4 of A Very Merry Christmas Town by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
  • fully finish:
    • All Hallows’ Eve
    • Sweet Tooth
    • The Bee Keeper
    • Legendary Friends
    • Cozy Gingerbread Snow Globe
    • Christmas on Gingerbread Lane
    • A Very Merry Christmas Town
  • work on the Cindermice Stitch Along by What Delilah Did
  • resume working on Holly and Hearts by Lizzie*Kate
  • fully finish the two ornaments I made using the bonus designs featured in Holly and Hearts
  • work on 2014 and 2015 Advent Band Sampler by iStitch Designs (one bit every day for 24 days) – I had an early start on the ’14 design and layed down part of the groundwork for the blocks.

Of course these are as usual more of a guideline to what to work on rather than a race to get it all done, but I would love to see more full finishes before the end of the year, and whatever gets left out will make it super fast to set January’s goals! ๐Ÿ˜œ Plus there’s the holidays, a needleworker can dream, right?

Hope all is well with you,

lots of love and happy stitches,

Chiara

P.S. I owe you an explanation on that “more on this later”, don’t I? Well, technically it’s just a matter of looking up to the far right, and noticing there’s a new tab under the header of this blog (the picture of BaBa/active link that brings you always to the home page) with the word PORN in it ๐Ÿ˜‚. TWICE! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ It has been there for over a month now, will you dare to take a peep at it? ๐Ÿ˜œ

    1. thank you so much, Gracie! โค๏ธโค๏ธ I look at that balloon with a smile every time I walk by, kind of the whole point of what we do, to put a smile on our faces ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Great finishes, the little balloon does look rather tricky to attach to the pillow.
    I like that your goals are more guidelines too!
    I’m going to try clicking on the new pages but I’m not sure if the Parental Controls on our system will let me LOL
