July has already arrived and it's time to review my June's goals.
Many stitchers have also reviewed this year's goals because half year passed. I'll do it too.

June's goals were:
- stitch the envelope for the second mail art exchange
worked on it, but not finished

- work on some UFOs
I pulled out only HOHRH

- 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
no :(

- work on The bookshelf and The Tea Room
yes, I worked on The Bookshelf and I finished The Tea Room

My July's goals are:

- finish the envelope for my second exchange of mail art
- stitch July's Flip-It blocks by LK
- stitch the monthly Christmas ornament
- stitch a block of Terre de France
- work a bit on HOHRH by Carriage House Samplings
- work on The bookshelf
- start the Daisy Lane Cottage SAL (15th of July)
- start the Quacker Garden SAL (the SAL has already started but I'm till waiting for my pattern and fibers)

July looks a busy month...
I could find the post about my 2006 goals. Reviewing them:

-Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace by Passione Ricamo SAL with Carol
we've not started it yet

-12 Flip-it by Lizzie Kate SAL. Every month we'll stitch the monthly Flip-it
yes, I've stitched six Flip-Its during these six months

- finish Terre de France by Annick Abrial, Christmas Elf Fairy by Mirabilia, Christian's Stocking by Shepherd's Bush, Be my love by Carriage House Samplings
finished only Be my love by CHS

- work on Once upon a time by Passione Ricamo, Celtic Summer by Lavender&Lace, Little Kate's patterns by Margaret Sherry
I worked a bit on Once upon a time and Celtic Summer

-finish the Mill Hill kit about Halloween

-The rose of Sharon by Mirabilia SAL with Carol (sometimes during the year)
we've not started it yet

- some ornaments for my Christmas tree
I stitched an ornament for month (to tell the truth they are seven ornaments because during August I'll not be able to stitch one and I've already finished that)

- a needlecase for me

- start and finish some LHN designs (Coffee Menu, The bookshelf...)
yes, I finished Coffee Menu and Lavender Hill, I started The bookshelf

Now I'm sharing my most recent progress on The bookshelf. I finished the top of the pattern but I've not stitched the golden parts because I have to decide what kind of fiber I'll use. I don't like the DMC one, I think I'll use a Rainbow Gallery one.

Hello Bea:

Oh I am so excited to see your Book Shelf project as I just bought it today! It is so pretty and I am so anxious to get started on it. I am also doing the little project called Watermelon by Little House Needleworks and it is a really fun stitch. You inspire me. You do really beautiful work. I look forward to watching your progress on Bookshelf. Debby L. Magnolia, Texas, USA
