2016 Goals and An Update

Please can someone tell me where January went?  I had all kinds of plan to be more consistent in my blogging yet somehow here it is, February 8 and I've only posted one entry.  It just seems like yesterday was Christmas and here it is almost Valentine's Day.  Well, I hope to post more often but I make no guarantees.

I did make some stitching goals for myself this year.  Aside from finishing Sherrie's wedding sampler, I also want to stitch another Prairie Schooler from the 4 Seasons chart I worked on last year.  I still haven't decided which season I'm going to do next but I'm leaning towards summer.  I also want to work some more on the DMC Pets chart I started last year.  Another piece I want to try and finish is my granddaughter's birth sampler.  She is 3 now and I think it's about time I finished it.  Then when hers is done, I'll work on her brother's.  And lastly, of course, I cannot forget about the wedding sampler.  I have made good progress on it but I need to get in gear to have it done by the wedding in June.  I'm debating on changing the medallion in the middle to a monogram of her new last name initial.  I've gotten some really neat books with charted letters and I'll see if I can find one that fits. 

Speaking of the wedding sampler, here is an updated picture of it.  I can't show all of what's been stitched because that would involve taking it off the scroll frame and I'm not quite ready to do that.
