Stitching goals for the new year

Since I'm not sure if I'll feel up to writing after my sinus surgery Monday, I'll take care of my review of goals now. I didn't seem to do too well on my stitching goals this year, but I did get a lot of stitching done on Teresa Wentzler pieces, which I'm excited about. I also read a lot more this year. I have one series of Mercedes Lackey books left to read, and I can say I've read all her books. Then it's on to other favorite authors I've been meaning to read! And then there are all the illnesses. I was sick a full half the year--every month I got a sinus infection, and they usually last two weeks. That wears you down, but the surgery should take care of that.

Here's how I did, stitching-wise, in 2009 and what I hope to accomplish in 2010.

Pieces I finished in 2009:

  • Autumn Faerie
  • Winter Faerie
  • Spring Faerie
  • Medieval Miniature
  • Sun Dragon
  • Futurecast (six TWs for those who are counting!)
  • Royal Blossoms
  • Stitchie Witchie
  • Heart Throb
  • Violet Bouquet NR
  • Tulip Time NR
  • Victorial Floral NR
  • Sweetheart NR
  • Strawberry Patch NR
  • Wildflowers NR (finished all the needlerolls in the series!)
