New finish, goals and UFO

During the past days I forgot to post the May's Flip-It. I finished it and I like this one very much.

I also finished another Christmas ornament, the sixth one. I'm so happy because I'll not be able to stitch one during August. I'll have twelve ornaments at the end of the year all the same.

Here is my most recent progress on The Tea Room. It's a lovely pattern and it's a joy to stitch it. It has soft colours and it shouldn't take a long time.

Now I have to review my May's goals. They were:

- stitch the May's Flip-it by Lizzie Kate

- finish the fifth Christmas ornament by Prairie Schooler
yes, I finished the fifth and I started stitching another that I have already finished

- work on Celtic Summer or Once upon a time
no :(

- finish the rings pillow for my friend

- work on some UFOs
yes!! I pulled out the Terre de France at the beginning of the month and I also worked on The Stitcher by Homespun Elegance

- stitch an envelope for the second mail art exchange
I prepared everything but I had to stitch a second envelope for my first partner because we thought that the first one was lost

I think that I could stick to my goals' schedule. The secret is choosing quick and easy my June's goals are:

- stitch the envelope for the second mail art exchange
- work on some UFOs
- stitch the June's Flip-it by Lizzie Kate
- finish another Christmas ornament by Prairie Schooler
- work on Celtic Summer or Once upon a time
- work on The bookshelf and The Tea Room

About my UFOs I'm happy because during this month I worked on some of them a bit. I'm still motivated reading Danielle's blog. She pulled out all her UFOs and she wants to work on them, so I decided to make a list of my UFOs/WIPs too. I could be ispired by this list during June.

  1. Little kate by Margaret Sherry - I want to stitch all the ten patterns to sew a quilt with these
  2. Cookin' up magic, a kit by Mill Hill
  3. Enchanted Alphabet by Lavender&Lace
  4. Once upon a time by Passione Ricamo
  5. Terre de France by Annick Abriail
  6. The Stitcher by Homespun Elegance (SAL with Veronica)
  7. Celtic Summer by Lavender&Lace
  8. Christian's Stocking by Shepherd's Bush
  9. Elf Christmas fairy by Mirabilia
  10. Archie by Margaret Sherry - I'm stitching it on a towel that I would have liked to give as a gift to a friend but I've not finished it yet
  11. The Houses of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings
  12. 12 Flip-Its by Lizzie Kate (SAL with other Italian friends)
  13. 12 Christmas ornaments by Prairie Schooler (one for month)
  14. The Tea Room by Country Cottage Needleworks
  15. The bookshelf by Little House Needleworks (started SAL yesterday)

The list is long enough.

Today is a National holiday in Italy so we've a long weekend. I hope to change the poll on the right and add some new links.

By the way, here are the poll's results:

The bookshelf 29
Season of rest 8

So I am not the only one with a few UFOs! :) Taking them out helps a little to try and get motivated on finishing them. I hope I can stick to it. Of course when I am looking at everyone else's new projects I want to start something new, too....
