Setting goals

It's that time of year again. Time for the annual setting of goals at the HAED BB. I've set my HAED goals there, so here I would like to set goals for my other WIP's.

1: Finish the stitching on my Iris pillow and then actually make it into a pillow. And enter it in the Silkweaver Showcase.

2: Finish St. Basil's Cathedral. Will be entering it in SW Showcase.

3: By the end of the year, have a rotation slot freed up for the St. Petersburg Garden.

4: Do my darnedest to finish up at least one page of Through A Mother's Eyes. (If I can just get past that mountain of fractionals in the mirror I'll make it on this one)

#1 is doable if I'll just work on it regularly. It's not a big design, 8x9". I can do it if I'll just work on it more than once every 6 months. Part of the reason I don't like working on it is the stupid color chart. It's a Paula Vaughan. As much as I love her designs, I will never do very many of them because I simply hate the charting. Color charts drive me bonkers!

#2 is also doable I think. St. B is a quick stitch when I'm working on it. The chart is 4 pages and I'm nearly done with a whole page. I've only got about 6 weeks worth of stitching in it right now. Would have made more progress at Mimi's last week if I had remembered my blending filament... Plus the fabric I picked is giving it *exactly* the look that I wanted it to have, which makes stitching on it sheer joy.
