updated goals & bucket list

I just realized I haven't posted goals in ages!  I'll just skip right to February, then...

February goals:
- finish Titania (been working on her since finishing Tree of Hope)
- part one of Octopus Treasure Cave (can't wait!)

Okay, maybe finishing Titania will be impossible, but I'll make a nice dent in her anyway.  Here's how she looks at the moment.  There's a bit more at the top that's been wrapped around the scroll bar, but not enough to really count for anything!

Annnnd a preview of how my Octopus Treasure Cave will end up looking on the fabric I chose - Phantom by Picture This Plus.  Should be here any day now. :)

And a new bucket list as I've recently discovered some new things, or decided to favor certain ones more than others... because as queen of my blog, I can do that. :p  Not counting my current WIPs, my top ten (for the next five minutes, anyway!) looks like this:

- Bluebeard's Princess (Mirabilia)
- Butterfly Garden (The Drawn Thread)
- Chinese Garden Mandala (Chatelaine)
- Finery of Nature (Dimensions kit)
- Hope (Brooke Nolan)
- Night (Teresa Wentzler)
- Octopus Treasure Cave (Chatelaine)
- Sparkling Shamrocks (Sweetheart Tree)
- South Seas Mermaid (Mirabilia)
- Woodland Faerie (Teresa Wentzler)

Finally, I'm feeling major chart lust lately!  I need to get Drawn Thread's Butterfly Garden (I suspect the love fairy may bring it on Valentine's Day!) and I'm seriously considering subscribing to Spring Knotgarden before the group is closed at the end of February.  I've admired that one for a while, but I recently looked at some WIP pics... bad idea! :p


  1. As long as you're making progress on Titania, it's all good. :D

    Nice pic for Octopus. Phantom is one of my faves.

  2. I have just ordered The Butterfly Garden, it is such a beautiful design.

  3. @Joyce:
    Titania is working up quickly! I finished off the orange ribbon on the right and started the purple one that touches it near the bottom. Cruising right along! And Phantom was actually in my mailbox when I wrote this post, so it's already prepped for octopus time. :)

    Butterfly Garden was another one I was really interested in! I'm not going to go look at it now because then I'll want it again... :p

  4. Oooh! I am so tempted by that Octopus Treasure Cave! :)

  5. Great wor5k on Titania and the octopus one is just stunning

  6. Great job on Titania! I am looking forward to seeing your start Octopus Treasure Cave on Phantom.
    I have the same problem-looking at Chatelaine pics and wanting to do them all :)

  7. Good luck with Titania! I think you can make it. And the Octopus is pretty cute - I can't believe I\m saying that!

  8. Looking forward to seeing the progress on Octopus. I've always wanted to stitch on a dark fabric. Each stitch on Titania is progress. She's lovely!
