January progress & February goals

For January I said

Finish the model   Done and I can post it in a couple of days
Pick a weekend project   Done and good progress made
Have a couple of starts beside my Jan 1st one  I've had 6 in total!!
Pick a new Monday night/travel project  I'm on number 3 thanks to LOTS of sitting round the hospital waiting 
Bead an ornament   Done and the pic will appear

For February I'd like to
Start the next model that has arrived
Finish the model for Sparklies
Get to the left hand edge on my weekend project
Get to the edges on Peacock Cypher
Bead an ornament

As I said above I had 6 starts in January, 3 of those have been my Monday night/travel project (aka sitting round the hospital, dentist, Docs etc) and of those 3 I've finished 2.  I also got the model for AAN finished and as today is the release date for the chart I can share the pic next time I blog.

I stitched every day in January but I have no idea how long for.   For a few years now I've been thinking about not timing my stitching but couldn't quite bring myself to do it or I'd think that it would just be odd to stop halfway through a year.   I did start the year off with a stopwatch on my lap but after a couple of weeks of not getting round to printing off a new sheet and having bits of paper with hours written down and a chance remark off a friend I thought it was time.   I have however spent most of the month counting my stitches, a group I'm in on Facebook had a snowball fight and for every 1000 stitches you did you got 5 snowballs to throw and you had to do 50 stitches for everyone you got hit with but they counted for 1000.   I managed to throw 60 snowballs so you do the maths as to how many stitches I did (roughly)

Current PHD total = 28

Sounds like you did a lot of stitches but I am FAR too lazy to work it out on a Sunday night!
