It’s time to look back on my creative goals from last year. My first goal was to make samplers for TAST 2012. I’m happy to say I stitched all stitches. After the last stitch I had some partial finished samplers left. My couching and running stitch sampler only needed a border. At the time I had no idea what stitch to use, but after stitching the alternating stem stitch on my grey linen sampler I knew this was it! I stitched it with perle 5.
I also had to take a photo of my complete Aida sampler with the last stitches.
Now I’m working on a white sampler that only had Cretan stitch and knotted loop stitch. I printed a list with the stitches from TAST 2012 and started adding stitches. It’s almost finished, this is the result until now.
My second goal was to finish a few Work In Slow Progress projects. It didn’t work very well, so I was very happy when Sharon started Work In Progress Wednesday. I picked up an old quilt and finished a lot of the quilting. I haven’t touched it since my last post, but I’m planning a progress post next week.
My last goal was to work samplers for Sharon’s stitch files. Well, I made 2 in the first week of 2012 and then TAST started. It was just too much to work on both.
So this year I’ll have 2 creative goals: I will be participating in TAST 2013 and continue quilting and write about it in my Work In Progress Wednesday posts. But I’m sure there will be other creative things to write about.
