"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

And then it was gone .

Went to bed last night with the world still white with ice and snow. what a change when I got up this morning .
   Warmer weather and rain had taken most of the snow away . The rest has gone this afternoon. We now have wind and rain . Lovely !
 
 I didn't quite get my last finish of 2014. The last of the back stitch on this was put in this morning , so an early finish for this year .
   And here is my orts for 2014 . Hoping to have a new container for this year , but my son needs to eat more snowies ,lol .

So ,a quick round up of 2014 , I had 44 finishes , and most of them were squares for LQUK , I stitched 34 squares , 16 sign ups and 18 any child(spare) squares.

 Book wise , I read 85 last year  ,which is down on the last two years , but I did stitch more , so not too bad .

 For this year , my aims are to do more personal stitching, I love doing LQ squares , but have promised to stitch more for my kids , and I would like to get more done on my HAEDs and other projects . Reading wise , I'd like to equal or improve on this years numbers .
 However , I have another plan for this year which could have quite an impact on both of these aims , so we will have to wait and see. I will share more later when hopefully things will start to happen .

 So , I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year , and as someone very special said , may your smiles change the world , but the world not change your smiles .

Good luck with your plans for the year. Your little teaser at the end sounds interesting! I look forward to hearing more about it in due course! xx

Glad to see the snow is gone. It's pretty but really messes things up. You are a great record keeper. I have no idea how many books I read or even how many stitches I did. Maybe my goal for this year should be to keep track. A very happy New Year to you and your family.

Congratulation on your first finish of 2015! Your ORT jar shows just how much you stitched during the year. There are some beautiful colours in there! :)

Vickie said...

Very impressive numbers I would say!
Happy New Year!

Melody said...

Happy New Year to you, Cath! That is a lot of ORTS! You have had a productive year on both the reading and stitching fronts.

Chris said...

Great goals Cath. It is always hard to balance everything.
Happy New Year!

Happy new year!
Those numbers are super impressive to me! I only managed forty-something books (even though I own hundreds) and stitched even less (own even MORE patterns than books). Hopefully I will do a little better in 2015. You are an inspiration. :)

Julie said...

Very impressive book total, wow! And lots of stitching finishes too.
Another plan? Mmm I wonder what that could be....

Brigitte said...

Oh my, you had a very productive year last year. So many books read and projects stitched, you can be really proud of your accomplishments.
All the best for this year and good luck for your goals!
