So, the list of "To Do's" is ready for the coming year. Last year saw me take the opportunity to finish many outstanding projects. This year, although that list has been reduced, I haven't added all the things I could have. I know that with Home Schooling my time is going to be limited so no use setting goals that will be impossible. I might find time to do some of them but then again I may not. No need to set impossible expectations. I have left lots of spaces to add extras.
(Oh dear, I forgot the charity quilt! I will have to add that.)
The "Stitching Faces" class with Sue Stone and the book "Faces of Friendship" are linked. Those are the faces of my quilting friends and the friendship blocks they gave me all those years ago. It just so happens that the classes facilitate my portraits of friends. The first section was of those friends who have died.
In the next section the portraits will be more detailed. These will be of members of the group who have moved away but whom I still count as friends.
That Graffitti Quilt requires just one more applique to the main section. I was going to add a border but now I'm not so sure.
I am way behind on the 'Stitch Club' classes. I'm not sure that I want to stitch all of them so I will 'cherry pick' the ones I find interesting. I will keep my subscription for the year to these classes and then review where I am going. Those quilting gifts for Easter are well on the way to being finished so I will keep these for my weekends when I visit Toowoomba, then again it might be better to just 'get in' and get then done.
I did decide to make my Charity donation knitted animals this year. I have nearly finished the first one. Just her dress to go. These are really relaxing to work on at night listening to music or a podcast. (I have to re-do the mouth. I didn't have any tapestry wool.)
But high on the list is my teaching sample for "Exploring More Stitches". That is now drawn up and needs to be finished by the end of the month.
The Kogin stitched bags will be for Xmas gifts at the end of the year and they are my indulgence.
Now I just need fate to step in and blow it all out of the water!!!
