2017

What I'm working on throughout 2017
SALs:
I will be continuing the "Quaker Village" SAL with the wonderful French group of ladies into 2017, as well as:
  • WIPocalypse
  • Smalls SAL
  • TUSAL
  • IHSW
I have joined the Stitch From Stash Facebook Group, and have given myself a monthly budget of $25...I think that I can handle that!

I have subscribed to StitchyBox, again this year for three fun monthly treats, as well my annual JCS digital subscription, of which I adore and have paid for in full prior to January 1st...Woop wool!

How I am going to keep myself on the road to success...

I'm using a Rotation method, one of many that can be found on Liz's blog at StitchyBox, it's a 10-hour Rotation With Focus: This rotation allows you to include a focus piece, one that you need or want to work on more often. You make a list of your WIPs, and start by working on your first WIP for 10 hours, then switch to your focus piece for 10 hours. Then you work on the second WIP on your list for 10, and back to your focus piece for 10.

I have chosen a total of 13 WIPs for my WIPocalypse, which feels very doable...finger's crossed.
I am going to actively stitch on five WIPs at a time, using the 10 hour Tapered Rotation.
I also have an "On Deck" (Yes, I did just use a baseball term for my stitching) list of Kitted-Up and ready to stitch Starts...I will chose which one to start next based on a Screaming Rotation.

Now for the most important part...
