Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everybody.  I hope 2016 is good to you all and you get lots of stitching time and progress.

I've been thinking through my plans for the year, I don't want to be too ambitious as I would actually like to achieve some of them, so here is what I have so far:-

* Finish "Dragonfly"
* Finish "Curl Up With A Good Book"
* Complete 6 of the 12 blocks in "Save the Stitches"
* Do something with "Christmas Pots" - this is finished but just sitting in my box not "finished" if you get what I mean.
* Stitch the Halloween design I bought last year - in time for Halloween ideally!!!!
* Buy "Chinese Garden" - this one's easy - not sure I'll start it yet but need to buy the chart and then work out what I need for it.

That's it I think.  I'm sure other things will happen during the year, little charts and things but these are the things I want to achieve.  If I get other things done as well that's all the better.

I'll compile another page with these and where I am at the moment and post progress as I go along.

The one other target I have is to loose weight!  I say this every year but I really mean it this time.  I need to get fit and loose weight.  I won't bore you with every minute of my progress but I'll try to find a ticker or something to put in the side bar and might shout about it when I hit a milestone.  I've got about 2 stone to loose and want to loose it for our holiday.  We're going abroad for the first time in years and possible the last time as a family as my eldest is 18 and will soon be doing her own thing and not want to come away with Mum and Dad for much longer.  So I want to be in swimsuit shape, I'll never be bikini shape again, lol.

Happy stitching everybody.

Here's to a good 2016!

I'm definitely with you for finishing Curl Up although I know how confetti-heavy it is, so good luck with that, Dragonfly and your other goals. :)
