Happy New Year and 2018 Stitching Plans

Good morning everybody, and Happy New Year!!

After a successful 2017, and a lot of deliberation about where I want my stitching to go in 2018, I've more-or-less decided to stick to the 2017 plan because it worked so well. So, here are my plans for 2018:

1) Smalls SAL
I intend to carry on stitching one small project each month specifically for this SAL run by Heather of Stitching Lotus. I have a number of small projects kitted up all ready and waiting for the first of each month.

2) Decrease my number of WIPs
I aim to finish 12 WIPs this year from my 36 remaining 2015/2016 Challenge pieces, finishing one and working on two more each month.

3) New starts
I have allowed myself a maximum of 5 small-ish new starts during the year. They'll appear as and when I feel like it but only be worked on each month after I've completed my "compulsory" SAL and WIP stitching.

4) Decrease the number of finishes in my Box of Shame
I still have 52 projects which need to be framed, made into ornaments or finished off some other way. I must make more significant inroads than I did last year...

5) Large projects
My larger projects have now been neglected for the last three years and once again I have no plans to work on them this year. But plans can always change!

So there are my plans for 2018. No commitments other than the Smalls SAL, just plodding along, finishing off outstanding WIPs, with the odd new start if I feel like it.

Right, I'm to pick up my needle and put the first stitches of 2018 into a new project.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and very stitchy 2018.

Great plans. I need to go thru my Box of Shame and get some of that stuff on proper display!

Happy new year to you! Good luck with 2018 plans. No. 4 is the most challenging and neglected task for me :)

Great plans, again, I was thinking of something similar and may have to steal/borrow your ideas. :) It's not quite the same as I've already stared a larger project, now just need to blog about it!

You've got some great plans and they all seem very achievable. I look forward to seeing your progress on your projects.

Great plans! 52 Un-FFo's pieces is one per week, you can do this!
