November/December goals! (and a tiny finish)

Whew, how is it December already?!? New month, new goals... but first, let's see how I did with the goals I set for November:

- stitch/send Mirabilia RR on time - well, I'm not late yet...
- finish Willow Queen - YES!
- take crochet lessons - YES!
- win Nano!YES!

Not too bad, except for the lack of progress on the RR. I'm having a rough time with the fabric on the current one, a very tightly woven, thick, opal evenweave. My eyes aren't THAT bad but the opal is throwing me off somehow, and the fabric is so tight it literally squeaks whenever I pull the needle through, and it makes the thread knot constantly. It's a shame because the piece is gorgeous and the fabric is so pretty. It's going to be a challenge to get this done in time. :(

Now, December goals:

- stitch/send Mirabilia RR on time
- stitch MH butterfly kit
- finish leaves in Fatum border
- plan & post about 2016 stitching!

Not too much, but I know the RR will be tough, and I'm caught up in other projects again. I'd rather set myself up for success. :p

Speaking of MH kits, I finished another little one last week!

This one seemed easier than the last. Maybe I'm getting used to stitching on the paper. Or maybe this one just had fewer fussy bits or something.

And yes, I know I'm doing the whole fridge magnet thing wrong. I'll finish it properly later. :p


  1. Your butterfly s gorgeous and well done on achieving so many November goals. I really feel for you stitching on a fabric you do not really like. Hopefully the fact that it is a RR will keep you motivated enough to finish it. You can do it!! :)

  2. Cute butterfly :). Good job on your goals!

  3. What a lovely little butterfly, the beads really do enhance it beautifully.
