It’s never too early to plan cross stitch projects, right? Last night I added 2023 Stitching Plans to the sidebar. So far, the only things on there are starts planned for January 1 and February 1.
Denise and I are starting Three Things Sampler on January 1. It will be 13-1/8″ x 18″ stitched on 40 count and it looks like it has a whole lot of stitching so, no doubt, I won’t finish that one in January but another friend is going to stitch Smith Sampler and that’s one of the first charts I bought when I got back into cross stitching a couple of years ago and I really want to stitch that. I ordered the silk floss for it when I ordered the chart so we’re going to start that on February 1.
I’m hoping that 2023 will be a year of finishing more than starting.
In 2022, I had 5 birthday starts planned. I started two and finished one. Actually I started three because I subbed the one I had scheduled for my birthday but what matters is that I finished one.
In other planned starts, I had five charts planned to have started so far and I started three; finished none.
I have finished nine projects in 2022. I feel certain I’ll finish three more and if so, I’ll be happy to have finished 12 projects this year. I’ll do an end of the year report.
There isn’t a single project that I’ve started that I don’t want to finish but none of them are close to being finished so .. we’ll see how 2023 shakes out when it comes to finishing more than I start!
