My Goals for the NEW YEAR!!!!

Ok everyone. I went through my stash and created an inventory list of items I have.

I also created a inventory of UFO’s that linger over my head….
Not happy about having so many but hey…
I must be a serial starter as there are just too many wonderful patterns out there.

In 2009, I had I believe 17 finishes – 2 of which were not mine to start with. I also finished at least 5 small UFO’s.

SO….. I am hoping to be able to get more done this new year.
I am making 3 goals for this NEW YEAR(2010).

The first goal, having 20 finishes and hoping that at least 5 -10 will be from this list. (NO I am not expecting to finish the whole list of UFO's.... only 5-10) I listed them all because I am not sure which ones I will be doing.

The second goal, I would like to make enough CHRISTmas ornaments to buy a living tree and hang only stitched ornaments from. (I do not care if it is a small one or a big one… I just would like one special year to have a stitched ornament tree)

The third goal, is to have an online store(web page) selling my blankets, baby hats, beaded jewlery and etc. up and running. I would also love for it to be productive and make money.

This will be an extra special year for me as my hubby and I will be celebrating our 7th year of marriage.
(7 being my lucky number makes it all more special to me.

SO, let’s make our New Years goals and cheer each other on!!!

Wow Dawn that is one impreesive list, and I know you will get them Done!! Love the idea of having an all handmade ornament tree, since making ornies are one of my favorite projects!!
I also have the Lizzie Kate Samplers on my to do list, and also want to do them on one piece of fabric, trying to decide if I want a large square, horizontal, or vertical, Im leaning towards a horizontal approach...what do you plan to do??
