And here we go for the final lineup for the April Goals. In my last post you saw a few of the goals already posted.
Here's my start of my first embroidery I have done since I was about 10 years old. Below is the original picture that I am using as inspiration. It's mine and my husband's feet in front of the fire on one of our favorite vacations. I need to figure out how to do the log and flames. I think I am going to leave out the fireplace, but I may put in something for the ottoman. It's all something I will have to figure out in the next month or two. I cant decide if I will put this on my May goals or not. It may have to be a June goal to finish up. I don't know how much time I will have in May for this project. I have a couple of big ones planned.
This picture brings up memories of warmth, fun, love, fresh ocean air, comfy down beds, love and laughter. It just makes me smile. I cant wait to finish this hoop and hang it up. It's from a winter get away we had in Monterey CA. We stayed in a wonderful inn right on Cannery Row. Our room looked out over the Monterey Bay and we could see the sea otters while we had breakfast in the window seat each morning. We spent a couple of days wandering around the aquarium, a day on the beach behind the inn, and just relaxing in our room by the fire. I hope stitching this will keep it in my memory even after I am old and senile.
I know it's not May yet, but I am going to go ahead and put up my May Goals now.
1. Make progress on Growth Rings
2. Finish my desk (it's been in the process of being refinished for 3 years now. I think it's time to finish it!)
3. Make the chair cover for my husband. (This is another finishing project that's been sitting around for quite a while.)
4. Do something small. (This, of course, is my gimme goal. I can do anything I want!)
I think that's all I am going to set up for this month because I have a long week of work happening the week of Mother's Day. My family has 2 exhibits set up for the Maker Faire and that'll take up a whole weekend. My daughter is moving out so I'll need to set up our living room back into a living room. And last, but not least, an old friend is coming into town for a weekend and we are planning a family dinner and maybe a bbq at the beach. Wow...that's a pretty packed month for us! I may have planned too many goals!
