So I’m jumping in a little late…

I know that a lot of you are wrapping up the 101 things that you started about 978 days ago.  I’m now at a point where I feel I have enough control over my life situation to focus on creating the a list to work on for the next 2 and 1/2 years.  It was harder than I thought to create the list.  One of the things that I want to do is read at least one business book every 2 months.  I ended up listing out 15 books to be determined since I’m not sure what business books I want to read right now.

I took a gamble with the hobby stuff.  It took me 3.5 years to complete the 100 project challenge and most of what I did in that time was small stuff or finishing.  I’ve set a goal now to finish 4 big projects that I am currently working on (the year of Carousel Horses) and a few other older pieces that are fairly close to being done and just need some focused attention to finish them.

I’ve created a separate page in order to keep track of the goals (the link is over on the right).  The scary thing is that I started 2 weeks ago and I’m already behind.  I’ll catch up on the reading schedule though.  The stitching schedule is actually a little ahead.   A lot of the other stuff will come once I find a job.

It’s September – Time for more Pony Progress

And Summer is finally started and has progress to show for it. Ten hours of stitching was completed on 8/22/11 and believe it or not, this is 25% of the pattern marked as complete.

And here is a new five hour stretch completed on Winter on 8/31/11. We’re at 65% complete and even more would be done if I had just finished the snowflake in the saddle blanket. I just was not in the mood to mess with the metallics this round.

It doesn’t show but if you look in the upper right corner, there are 8 stitches of Krenik #4 that weren’t there in the last picture. Which is slightly odd too since I just couldn’t bring myself to pull out the Krenik roll for Winter.

And the only thing which happened to Spring this month was some trimming of tails on the backside of the stitching. August was a fairly productive month.
