My 2013 targets!

After yesterday's review of 2012, I thought it would be a good idea to share my plans for 2013.

before I dive in completely though, there was a question about which company does the 3D houses, the company is called The Nutmeg Company, this is the link to their website, but all the houses are sold at different distributors.

So onto my 2013 targets, my New Year's Day New Start is going to be Lakeside Village:


It's the one my hubby pointed out at the Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate.  It looks complicated from the picture, but in reality, it's only 4 pages and a snitch compared to my mega HAEDs!

My next new start will be for the HAED SAL which I've mentioned before - Heather:

QS Heather

The SAL starts on the 4th January and I hope to finish it in 2013.

I'm not forecasting any more new starts and just as well, that will take my current WIPs to 9!  Not sure if I've ever had that many before, but should be able to finish County Durham soon.

I'm not setting any timelines as I've done in previous years as it never seems to work out as you planned, so what I'm doing is re-starting the 10 hour rotation, with a little difference.  I will prioritise Heather and stitch her to keep on top of the SAL.  The rotation will initally cover:

  1. Lakeside Village
  2. Heather (Focus Piece)
  3. County Durham
  4. Ladybug Love
  5. Samantha
  6. Think Pink 
When I finish a page of one of the BAPs (no. 6) I will rotate the other BAPs into this slot (Beacon Ridge and Snowy Friends)

In this way i hope to be able to show you progress on all the designs thoughout the year!

I'm also on the look out for a new blog template so any recommendations are welcome!

Well that's me signing out for this year, take care, have a fabulous night and 
Happy New Year!!!!
