Goals and school.

First day at school
Awww here's my dd starting school in her new uniform. She is so excited about school and is loving it so far. How time flies. Leaves me lots of time to get in some serious stitching. I suppose I had better get it in now whilst I can. Come January there'll be no time for a while.

So I wasn't too good on my August goals although I did make my scissor keeps! I never touched (yet again) Dreaming Mermaid or I am Half Sick of Shadows. So my main goal this month will be to concentrate on at least one of those. It is so difficult though as I have just got back into Patchwork and I find it really hard to get motivated to do another project. Am I the only one like this that is so undisciplined??

So Goals this month:

1. Work on Dreaming Mermaid
2. Work on I am half Sick of Shadows
3. Start CdC when my threads come.

I have already done some Patchwork so I won't include that in my goals.

In regards to CdC I have some other fabric that I will be using that is just plain mulberry coloured linen. I have chosen Thread Gatherer threads in Spring Frocks to do it in. 068 Hopefully it will come back right and not like the Sugar Maple. In regards to that I emailed Mindy of SMF to take her up on her offer of exchanging the piece but so far she has not been back in touch.

I am quite liking doing updates on this blog once a week and commenting once or twice a week. It can get so that it takes up all your time when you are reading and commenting all the time. I love blogs and get so inspired when I read them but end up with little time to stitch!!
Here's to a better month stitch wise. xx

The mulberry linen and the Thread Gatherer silk you picked out should look stunning together. Hopefully you and Mindy can work something out in regards to the fabric.

Hope you can sort something out with the fabby. I like the sound of the fabby and thread you have chosen now for CdC.

I'm with you. Blogging, reading blogs and commenting does take a lot of time away from stitching. Don't get me wrong, I love doing it all, but it does take time. The blogs do give me lots of inspiration and keep me motivated, but I just need more time.

Good luck on the goals.
I am with you on the reading blogs and stitching time, they are so addictive, lol.
I dont know what i did with my time before I started blogging and stitching more. Oh well, I am happy :)

Your daughter looks so sweet Hazel. I really like that thread you've chosen for CdC. I agree blogging takes up such a lot of time, but as Kathy said blogs give you an awful lot of inspiration, and, I find that they can be quite good at helping you to part with your money! (LOL) I know though that I don't comment as much as I should, although I do read everyones blogs and enjoy doing so.
