March update and April goals

Well, here are my March goals and what happened with them. As you can see, I fell a little short this month. I have realized that I just can't get as much done in the spring as I can in the winter. Go figure. Oh well, I know to reduce my goals for this next month.



  • 8. Stitch and finish another LITTLE March ornament. DONE

  • 7. Stitch and finish a LITTLE March ornament. DONE

  • 6. Stitch Santa from the L*K Christman Spirit series. NOPE

  • 5. Finish my first exchange piece. DONE

  • 4. Stitch my first exchange piece. DONE

  • 3. Stitch the giraffe. Nope - Got his head stitched, but not his neck.

  • 2. Stitch the boy with the blue and white shirt.DONE

  • 1. Finish stitching blonde little girl in front of the boy with the red shirt. DONE

And, I did stitch and finish one other little March ornament, so that was good - right? Here is an updated picture of my Peaceable Kingdom, looks kinda funny with a giraffe's head floating in the air - LOL! You may have noticed that I finished my exchange piece as well, but I can't show it to you yet. It is to be mailed out on Monday, so it should not be too long before I can show it to you. I feel pretty good about how it turned out, I hope Michele likes it! I had a whole lot of fun putting it together.


Now for my April goals - gulp!



  • 1) Finish stitching the giraffe's neck.

  • 2) Backstitch the two little people in front.

  • 3) Stitch Santa in the Christmas Spirit series.

  • 4) Make and finish an Easter/spring ornament.

  • 5) Make and finish an Easter/ spring ornament.

This is going to be a bit of a busy month with Derby festival events and wedding showers for my son and his fiance, along with some camping thrown in for good measure. I will just have to make better use of my weekday evenings, that's all.

Once again, thank you for visiting my blog, and especially for taking time to leave a comment. They really do make my day, or night - LOL! Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!

I'm so proud of you for completeing so many goals. Have fun in April. I think it is true that I have less time in Spring to stitch. I'm so glad to have warm weather and I'm outside more. It will soon change once it gets hot and humid.

That's a real cuite in your header! Now if you hadn't had those goals, how much would have been finished?? Better to have higher goals and almost finish, or fewer goals??
Which ever, enjoy the springtime!
