2017 Stitching Plans

Let me start off by saying I am completely insane!   I have decided that this year, I am going to attempt the Stitch Maynia Year of Starts.   One new project everyday for the entire year!!!  That is 365 New starts to go with the 46 WIPS I have started already.  I am insane!!!  I have no idea how I am going to do my rotation. The Heaven and Earth Facebook Group has a new Challenge starting today.  Start a fresh page on your current Haed, or start a new Haed which has at least 7,300 stitches on it.  You have to finish the page by April 1st (I think) and you win a free HAED chart picked for this challenge.   Here is my challenge piece - Faery Tales page 24.  

The one finish I plan on having this year is Faery Tales.  I started it in 2007 and I want to finish it by the end of 2017. I think 10 years is long enough on this project!  

Today I have actually 2 new starts.  They both met all my Facebook Groups Stitch Along January 1st:

Joan Elliots - Dollhouse

Tilton Crafts - Up on the Rooftop

There are several project I am doing that is a series which will count as one new start each month.  The series I am starting are as follows:

Windows SAL that started in 2014.  I found this series one night on Frimousse blog.  I feel in love with it when I saw it!!!

I am also starting Brooke Books Birthday Cake series you can get for free from the Craftsy Website.
Stitchy Box is offering 12 Quaker Cakes from AuryTM designs.  They aren't too bad for a monthly subscription.

I am starting Brooke Books Advent Animals.  This picture was taken from Brookes Facebook group for the Animal Stitch Along. It was stitched by Stephanie W. She did an amazing job!  I am using is just show what the design will look like when finished.  I am stitching mine on one piece of fabric also.

I am also participating in 2 Mystery SALs:
Frosted Pumpkins - Happily Ever After designs.  On the 15th of each month, a new design is emailed to me.

Come back each Sunday and see my new starts for the week along with whatever WIPS I have pulled out for me to work on for this week.

A new start everyday? I have a lot of cross stitch projects, but I don't think I have enough to complete that challenge. Good luck.

Good luck Vickie. I did this last year. I am not going to do it this year. I am doing 31 starts in January in honor of Debbie and the rest of the year if I get a bug to start something. (I'm sure I will. lol) I love all of these pieces that you will be working on. Looking forward to seeing their progress.

You are one ambitious stitcher! I hope you are able to keep up the pace and accomplish all of those new starts! I'll be back next week to see your progress. Happy New Years Vickie.

Wow, your plans sound great! If I were to start 365 projects, I fear at least 200 of them would be Haeds and I would never get them done :D
I love the two starts you did already and am looking forward to see your work on the SALs. I think I will also join the cloudsfactory SAL, I love the subject! But I haven't looked up the frosted pumpkin on yet, so I might probably do that first.

I can't wait to see your starts and the progress on them. I am doing the Brookes Books Advent Animals this year, the Frosted Pumpkin SAL, and the Cloud Factory SAL.

Heather said...

Good luck with all of your new starts!
