My pieces for 2011

I would like to show you where my pieces stand at this moment that I will be working on this year to start out with.

I chose to work on 5 UFO's and 2 New starts for my New Year's Goal.
When a UFO is finished it will be replaced with a new UFO.
When a New start is finished it will be replaced with another new start.
Oh so you know.... my new starts will be smalls.

I figure by doing this plan I will be able to finish what has been hanging around unfinished, get the joy of new starts and also the joy of finishes.

Anyway, my UFO's that I will be working on are....

1. Jesus Wept.... ** See pic above to see current pic**
OOPS.... this is a WIP that will be taking one UFO's place....

2. Rocky Mountain Christmas by Marty Bell.... will be doing a SAL for this one... hope it helps.

3. Girl with cosmos
4. Mr Bone Jangles by Glendon Place (upset as this is the piece I was stitching in the new year on and found out yesterday that 1/3 of his chest was stitched wrong due to the working copy of this pattern being put together wrong.)

5. French Mime (This one is the piece I taught myself to do Counted Cross Stitch... yeah I know... I did not do the easy thing and start with something small....)

I am still trying to decide what smalls I will work on.
Oh wait.... I decided to make the OakHaven SAL be my smalls since there will be 12 smalls all put together into one piece.
SO until I pick out the other small please cheer me on with these 5 UFO's and the small SAL.

Thank you!

Beautiful stitching. Love the one with the girl.

I didn't start with a small project either way back in 1987 when I started counted cross-stitch. From the looks of it, it looks like you actually followed the directions. Not like me. But I do like how my piece came out. And I love the design of your first pattern ever!
Hugs!

Christmas looks really good. I wouldn't worry about Mr.Bone Jangles- I can't see your mistake, and I doubt anyone else would find it. Have fun finishing off the big projects. My plan is to do lots of smalls this year as well.

Wow, these are all such great UFOs! I can't wait to see their progress in the coming year!
