Plans for 2018

I know it's a tad early for making plans for 2018 but since 2017 wasn't that great in terms of finishes I figure what the heck.

I have decided that 2018 is going to be the year I work on WIP's. I believe I have about 22ish WIPS and even though that doesn't sound like a lot to many stitchers out there, it bothers me. Some of these projects I haven't worked on in almost a year and that makes me sad. I have picked 9 projects that I MUST finish in 2018, when exactly in 2018.....I have no idea but they will be finished (famous last words LOL).

But before we get to 2018 I have one more project I want to finish in 2017, which is Happily Ever After by the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, I am currently working on blocks for Nov and Dec at the same time and I hope to be finished at least one of them before Christmas, but I won't hold my breath. I have already started my Christmas vacation so I hope that gives me enough time to have this finish.

I have also decided to take a break from doing SALs next year to help facilitate the 9 finishes and also I just wasn't feeling doing another one right now. I might change my mind about purchasing either Cloudsfactory or Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's SAL for 2018 I just won't be stitching it in 2018 not until I get some projects done.

I hope to show a recap photo of my finishes for 2017 in another post but I don't want to do that until I finish Happily Every After.
