Goal Review

It was Paradigm Lost SAL night tonight. I find this one to be very fun to stitch. I had been sticking to page one so far, but I wandered over to page two for a little bit because the dragonfly looked a little silly with only one side of its wings...

July Goals:
1. Finish Part 10 of Medieval Town Mandala - yes
2. Finish Part 7 of Mystery IX - yes
3. Finish Quaker Garden - yes
4. Finish Harvest Moon - yes
5. Continue Mermaids of the Deep Blue - yes
6. Continue Women of the Mayflower with Sue - yes
7. Continue Kingdom Sampler SAL with Nikki - yes
8. Start Paradigm Lost SAL with Jo - yes
9. Work on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow - yes
10. Work on Veronica's Neighborhood RR - yes
11. If there is time, rescue another old UFO (maybe Random Thoughts) - no, no time
12. Start An Emblem of Love SAL with Carissa (and maybe Karen V.) - no, Carissa and Karen are being so kind as to let me finish Kingdom Sampler first

15. Finish Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler - yes

Paradign Lost looks great. I love the wedding pic of you and Mike on your sidebar. Nice addition to your blog. I like reading everyone's goals, that might be something I need to put into blog, maybe next month :>)

Happy Belated Birthday Carol! You and your blog have been such an inspiration to me. Hope you had a terrific day :)

Annemarie said...

Paradigm Lost is another beautiful project, Carol. And, oh boy, how do you manage to reach all those goals you set yourself at the beginning of each month. I tried something similar a while back, and ended up not stitching anything for weeks. The pressure...

I'm amazed at how much you are able to accomplish one month - wow! You are really a dedicated stitcher. Way to go!
