More Alhambra and 2008 Goals



I manged to get quite a bit done on Alhambra in the last week or so - the holidays provided me with some time off from work, and my classes don't start up again until this week, which means I have some extra time on my hands to spare. I'm hoping to get Alhambra finished shortly, and then continue work on Watergarden, which has been a WIP for longer than I care to admit. Watergarden is a lot more confetti stitching than Alhambra is, and so Alhambra has become my favourite out of the two.

I've never really outlined stitching goals in the past, but I thought I'd lay them out this year:

1) Finish Alhambra Garden
2) Finish Watergarden
3) Start Egypt Garden (Chatelaine)
4) Start Angel Proclamation (Mirabilia)
5) Finish 12 pay it forward or blog candy items
6) Finish 6 Christmas Ornaments

To do this, in January I need to:
1) Finish 1 page (page 9) of Alhambra
2) Finish the two pay it forward gifts
