February Review and March Goals

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all well and enjoying some stitchin time. First of all I want to thank you all for the get well wishes, I'm definitly much better than what I was and I'm almost cough free :)

Another month has ended.... is it just me or with every year the time seems to fly even faster? And with another month ended is time for the balance and I have two celebrate - 2 months, 2 times I reach my realistic goals... not bad (Ok I admit that I'm making then a bit easier, but it works better to my ego and motivation this way) so going back a month these were my goals:

Realistic Goals:
- Finish the Birth Sampler (preferably before the 10th of February to have time to frame it before visiting my brother and his family)- Stitch 600 stitches on QS Believe
Dreamworld goals:- Complete the partial page on QS Believe- Stitch 100 stitches on QS Bookend Kitties

As I said I was able to complete bith realistic goals:

Finish the birth sampler:

After - Lickle Teddy - 11.02.2014 (Finished)

Stitch 600 stitches on QS Believe - I was actually able to stitch 1600+ stitches on it and was relatively close to achieve the dreamworld goal of completing the 2nd page:

Before - 01.02.2014

After - 01.03.2014 [no stitches done today]

01.03.2014 - Close-up
Overall I'm really pleased with my progress throughout the month :)

Now what am I planning to stitch for March:

Realistic goals:
     - Start/ Complete and Finish my Spring Project for the EmeraldIsle Cross Stitch group Exchange
     - Complete the second page of QS Butterfly
     - Stitch 1.5 columns of pages 3/5[partial page - just 2 lines] of QS Believe

Dreamworld goals:
     - Stitch 50% of pages 3/5
     - Complete pages 3/5

Now is just fingers crossed for me to be a good girl during the month, and to keep stitching :)

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Stitches,
