Plans for the New Year

Alright, I know you are all giggling out there, so just be quiet for a minute and listen up. Queenie and I have come up with a new rotation and this is it...

Slot 1-Cirques by Ink Circles (Christmas gift courtesy of Queenie)
Slot 2-Gatekeeper
Slot 3-Winter Queen
Slot 4-Dark Rose
Slot 5-Persian Iris
Slot 6-Thomas
Slot 7-Puppy Love
Slot 8-Whatever is screaming at the moment

We will also be working on a piece for the SAL challenge once a month and mine will be Small Things color. On months that have 5 weeks, that will be another free week. So our new rotation works out to 2 months.

We have also set yearly HAED goals....4 pages of each HAED in our rotation and finishing a QS.

So, what does everyone think?

OK, on to other things.....I'll be spending the weekend organizing my pieces for the new rotation and starting Cirques. I have Dark Rose all gridded and kitted. I gridded 1/2 the piece, so should be set for a very long time. I'm going to finish up kitting Gatekeeper this morning and then do the gridding, I think I'll grid the top row of pages for that one. I have Small Things color all gridded and ready to go, I ordered SILKIES for this one!!!

I also want to set up scrapbook pages for all the pieces in the rotation.

So that is my exciting New Years weekend!!

Happy New Years everyone!!!!!!

What I have been up to this morning

I decided to revamp my crafting room. Started last night and just finished. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. Now hubby got involved in the fray and got all the Christmas stuff out and efficiently trashed my livingroom and kitchen. We found out the mice got into the box with the Christmas dishes so now I have to wash all of them.

So here is my progress, the last pics are of my living room and kitchen, I'll be back to show better pics later.

Wish me luck!

After many trials and tribulations, the monster is done. I won't get into my cranky details, but lets just say I will not be doing another Reflets de Soie chart. OK details, 28 ct Royalty Opal Lugana by Enchanted Fabrics and Vikki Clayton's Midnight Rainbow premium silk. I must say Vikki was a lifesaver when I ran outta floss, had it in the mail to me the next day and even included an extra skein for me! And lovely Lori did a special cut size just for me. What more can you ask for?

Now it is back to Puppy Love and hopefully will be finished in time for Christmas!!!
