Barnabee is home and some goals

Yeah, I was able to finish Barnabee’s Quest last night!!! I really enjoyed stitching this piece. I plan on finishing it into a wall hanging and need to go through my fabric to see if I have a pretty pattern for the backing.

And now on to goals. April was another poopy stitching month for me. I wasn’t able to get into a good groove until the end of the month. I found I felt a bit overwhelmed with obligation stitching this month. I have a lot of that with round robins this year, but I think the rest of the year’s maildates are spread out enough that it shouldn’t be too bad. Finishing Barnabee certainly made me feel pretty good too:)

Here were my April Goals:
1. Finish all the side pools on Potager du Roi-Nope
2. Finish Bordeaux Sampler through part 3-Nope
3. Stitch on Stargazer-Just a teeny bit
4. Finish Barnabee’s Quest-YES!!!
5. Finish Part 2 of German Garden-Nope
6. Finish Spring Dragon-Yes
7. Finish Mystery ExchangeYes
8. Baste fabric for Neighborhood RR and pick a pattern-Nope, but I have given thought to which pattern

And now for some more realistic goals for May:
1. Finally finish all the side pools on Potager du Roi
2. Finish through half of part 4 on Bordeaux
3. Finish page 2 of German Garden
4. Stitch on Stargazer
5. Stitch and mail my Neighborhood RR
6. Start Summer Dragon on Jenna’s RR.
