January WIPocalypse

Well finally, I  sat down and made a list of  my stitching plans for next year. Naturally, the list is still crazy and ambitious, but that is the fun of it! I rejoined the WIPocalypse and I hope to do better about posting.  I already have quite a few of these projects in play and it's just a matter of taking the time and getting to work on them. I have been trying to stitch a little in the morning after work and since that is something I don't normally do, I am hoping it will help propel me to finishing more.  I have found that, I enjoyed having a working list to refer back to, especially when finishing a project. It definitely has helped me focus on what I want to stitch next.
My current wip Promised Lamb
The topic for the January WIPocalypse was for us to introduce ourselves, our projects and our goals. Many of you know me so just skip on by the next part!

My name is Sharon and I have been blogging now for almost 8 years. I can't believe it's been that long. I have 3 busy teenagers, 2 in high school and 1 in college. I have 5 cats and my daughter may kill me if I get anymore. I love to read, stitch, Internet surf and watch NCIS. You can find me on Facebook and Instagram.  I currently work an RN on a mother/baby unit.

My projects are listed here and you can read pretty much what my goals are above. My main goal is to finish anything!

Your WIP promised lamb looks great so far.

I can't wait to see your progress on your WIPocalypse's. I love the ones you have chosen.

Have a wonderful day!

Lamb is so pretty, I love the soft colors. Like your goal of just finish anything, fits my goals too. That way I can work on what calls to me and not stress if it is the "goal" project or not. By the end of the year, something should get finished, LOL.

Melissa said...

Gosh, you are very organized with a list! Good for you. I see we do have very similar tastes!

Promised Lamb looks very pretty!

Your job must be very fulfilling what with working with babies and moms, but hectic, I'd bet!

Good look with your stitching goals this year - I have to admit I've found I seem to stitch more when I'm doing a formal rotation, just like your working list, as I'm not wasting time pondering for days on what to stitch next ... don't know why it makes so much difference, but it does ... look forward to watching your progress :)

Julie said...

Lots of lovely things in your list, good luck with them all.

Rachel said...

Promised Lamb looks like it will be a lovely sampler!

Carol said...

What a gorgeous sampler, Sharon! I remember those busy days with three teenagers (only had one cat though--ha ha!!)... Hope your new stitching year is a fun one!

Juls said...

Your stitching is beautiful!!!! I still remember you made one of the first comments on my blog probably 7-8 years ago.......

Karoline said...

Promised Lamb is looking lovely, great progress

Brigitte said...

Wow, that's an impressive list of projects for this year. They will give you hours and hours of wonderful stitching. Good luck with your list.

Peggy Lee said...

Your stitching is lovely!
Your list makes me dizzy. I could never finish that many projects. I'm going to look some of them up so I can get a better idea of what is ahead. Can't wait to see your progress on these!

Oh I do love Promised Lamb! I have that one all kitted up and ready to go. It's on my WIPocalypse list too.
I joined the Ladies Prim Society last year but decided to give the Colonial Group a chance this year instead.
