Stitching Rotation

I've been thinking a lot lately on how I want to do a rotation of my smaller projects. I've been reading a lot of blogs and it seems as though 2010 will be the year of finishing UFO's. Now I have lots of UFO"s, so many that I won't admit to a number. So how can I incorporate them into the stitching rotation? I've decided that I will concentrate on my large project, in this case, the impossibly red poppies. But I will take one day a week and work on a rotation of four smaller projects. One of them will be a UFO that I'll pull out and work on until it's done. I chose four for the number of smaller projects since I can do a different one every week and in a month I will have worked on all of them. That way I won't get too many into rotation and feel like I'll never be able to finish any of them. I have a couple of Lizzie Kate's that I'm anxious to start so those will go into rotation. I haven't been able to get into my craft room since it's being used as a second guest room for the holidays. But as soon as my son leaves for Flagstaff today, I'll get in there and pull out my UFO drawer and decide on what will go into the rotation. That is, after I take down the tree, bake another batch of cookies and put away all of the Christmas decorations. I'll kinda be glad when this holiday is over. It's been wonderful having everyone here, but I'm ready to return to my routines now.

Sounds good my dear.
I am planning to look at my UFO's and see which one is closer to a finish. That would be the next to work on. I figure if I keep doing that I will get more done. LOL
