Summer Stitching !!!!

I spent yesterday looking and counting up my WIPs, for all the crafts I do:

21 !!!!!! That is far too many for me to feel comfortable, I need to get this down to at least 10.  In the spirit of this I think realistically I can complete 6 of these by the end of the year. Until 2017 I will therefore be concentrating on:
1. Circle to Square Crochet blanket
2.  Happi Sampler
3.  Frog SAL
4.  Halloween Part 2
5.  Flowering Garden and
6.  Tom the teddy

In the spirit of this I pulled out flowering garden to focus on alongside my circle to square blanket and Happi sampler (the first few projects to work on).  When I last worked on it it looked like this:

Hopefully I'll have some progress by the end of the week.
Happy Stitching  Everybody !!!


  1. If it makes you feel any better I have 56 cross stitch wips, 2 x quilts and 1 knitted dress as wips. I love the variegated orange thread for your garden project. It's nice and sunny! Good luck with all your crafting

    1. Thank you, that does make me feel a little better, haha !!! I guess I feel guilty because some of the projects I haven't touched for ages but I really want to work on them !!! I hope by maybe just focussing on a couple of projects at a time I will then get to them all. There's just so many things I want to do and not enough time !!

  2. That doesn't sound like too many compared to some! I'm trying to reduce my WIP list to no more than 5 this year. I'm a bit behind but still in with a chance. I hope your rotation works for you.

    1. I actually remembered another one so its actually 22 !!! I hope you managed to achieve your goal too. It's a nice problem to have really !!!

  3. Wow that's a lot good luck! I love the colors you're using on happi.

    1. Thank you, its a really sweet design and I always love picking it out to work on !!
