Where did 2018 go? And how about those 2018 stitching goals?

I was going to come out of blog-land hibernation by doing a series of posts on all the WIPs that I have laying around.  Some of those projects are laying around close by in the event I want to pick them up and do a few stitches, others are hiding away and haven’t had a stitch made on them in years.    Anyhoo,  I spent a few moments last night photographing those “close by” WIPs with full intentions of doing a “WIPs, Part One” post today.

I haven’t had many blog posts in the last year or so but thought I remembered doing a WIPs update.  When I looked back at prior posts, I quickly found the one that I was recalling, however, it turned out to be this “2018 stitching projects” post instead of a WIPs post.  Imagine my horror 😦😧😮😲 when I saw that four of the WIPs mentioned in that post, with corresponding photos, had not been TOUCHED at all during 2018.

I guess there is no reason to post the photos of these WIPs that I took last night since they look the same as the photos in my January 2018 post.  As I said “😦😧😮😲”!

Here are the WIPs from the 2018 post that were neglected for the past year:
La-D-Da - “You & Me”
Heartstring Samplery - “Spring Flame Pincushion”
Prairie Grove Peddler - “Little Candle Mats: Honey Bees”
The Heart’s Content - “Coverlet Series: Splendor IV”

Shame, shame, shame on me!  It’s not like I stopped stitching since I did finish a few of the WIPs shown in the January 2018 post......and even started (and finished!) new projects.

Hmmmmmm, what am I going to do about it?  I resolve to work on these four WIPs on a weekly basis.  And I resolve to post an update on these WIPs at the end of February.

Enough of this blogging,  I have some stitching to do!  See you in a couple of weeks!


  1. I look forward to seeing your finished stitches. I know they will be great. Happy stitching. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  2. Hi Donna: Thank-you for stopping by my Blog.
    I cannot have more then one design going at a time, I get very antsy, I do have beading and sewing projects going at the same time as a stitch design, somehow that does not bother me.
    I am looking forward to seeing your progress, I will be one of your cheerleaders.
