I have really enjoyed taking part in Stitch Maynia and it has made me eager to start more new projects. I am however glad the Maynia is over for me and I can get back to stitching for more than one day on each project.
During Maynia I have been thinking a lot about WIPs, UFOs and new starts and how I can manage a rotation that can include them all.
To start with I will always have a focus piece which currently is the Halloween Mystery SAL Model that I am stitching for Jodyri Designs. As it's a mystery I obviously won't be able to post about this design until each part is released. After I have finished a section on my focus piece I will switch to a WIP then go back to the focus then to a new start (if I have any kitted and ready to start). I plan to work through my WIPs and new starts in alphabetical order using my trusty XStitch App.
I will also use this app to keep track of the charts I have which I have not yet kitted up and will work on getting them kitted. I am ashamed to say that at last count including all the electronic charts I have and charts from magazines I have well over 1000 charts to stitch. I am going to try very hard not to buy any new charts unless it is to finish "sets" of charts that I already have started. There are a few more that I have on my must have list and I am sure more will get added but I need to look back at what I already have before buying more.
Obviously my stash now well exceeds my life expectancy! If only I could win the lottery and give up work and just stitch full time. Well I can dream can't I!
So the Maynia is over but the new starts are not.
I wanted to take an opportunity to thank all the people who comment on my blog posts. It makes me smile every time I open my inbox and find a new comment so thank you for making me smile.
Keep stitching and smiling
