Last year I lost 6 months due to shoulder problems. 2011 list is going to be smaller as I just getting back to stitching.

Main goal is to start the Anniversary Series by Blackbird Design on January 1st. Plan to stitch this on one piece of linen. Hoping to work with a 36 ct linen but if it doesn't work out I'll be going with a 30 ct linen.

Revisit my 2010 goal list and get at least 3 items removed from the list.
Top of that list would be:
Sonne Spotte Companion piece by LD- Finished on March 18th 2011
Jane Rees
The Shores by Carriage House Sampling

I'm saving room for a couple items from each market.
Blackbird Designs is on the top of my list
Carriage House Samplings designs by Marty is also on my list. I'm looking forward to seeing the farm that Kathy and Marty grew up on.

Finish up some baby surprise jackets,make a shawl and try some lace yarn for the first time.

Biggest Goal is going to learn to stop knitting or stitching before it causes pain.
