Update on Winter Blackwork, final finish of 2008 and goal review 2008, new goals 2009!

I managed to finish Exciting doilyby Mary Werst and I gave it to my mother-in-law while I was in Indiana over the holidays visiting her. She was really excited to get it! Here it is:

Here is a closeup:

In my last post I promised a picture of my progress on Tam's Creations Winter Blackwork. So here it is as of December 2008.

Since it is now 2009 I figure I should go over the goals I made for 2008 and see if I met them at all. The original post is here and my goals were:

  1. Have at least 10 finishes. I seem to have confused my goals. Here I wrote I want 10, but on webshots I wrote that I wanted more than 2007. I did not meet my blog goal but I did meet my webshots goal. I have 5 finishes in cross stitch for 2008.
  2. complete stitched ornaments into completed ready to hang up ornaments I got a couple done, but not all of them.
  3. Finish either Stroke of Midnight or Woodland Fairy by TW (preferably finish both) nope
  4. Participate in at least 2 swaps/exchanges (I was so happy to get my 2008 re-approval from CSC!) DONE
  5. Continue to encourage Curtis and now Stephanie (My sister-in-law who has moved into the house) to stitch as well. DONE
  6. complete at least one (preferably more) of the harder thread crochet doilies that are at the half way point (I am afraid I'll mess them up even though I have done them well so far LOL) DONE both of them!
  7. Organize my stash and threads better DONE
  8. Continue to make thread crochet items as practice and maybe try to do an afghan or something larger than a 16 inch doily DONE by working on doilies but no afghan yet.
  9. complete at least 2 more charity squares DONE, did 3!

Not as good as I wanted, but not bad considering I didn't stitch at all in 2007! Now goals for 2009, lets see:

  1. Finish at least 10 pieces
  2. Finish one of the 2 TW's I have as WIPS
  3. Do at least 2 charity squares
  4. Participate in at least 2 exchanges
  5. Complete my excel sheet of magazines
  6. Create excel sheet of freebies
  7. Get Bridgette's birth sampler done
  8. Get parent's 50th anniversary sampler done
  9. Get Tinkerbell done for father in law
  10. continue thread crochet

That seems like a good list of goals. Hopefully I can do a good job with it through out 2009! So what are your goals for the New Year?
