As I am already working on Chrysanthemum Fairy, I shall keep working on this until it is completed. I will then finish off Martha Jones 1792 sampler as that is quite a good way along and also if I stitch it for any length of time should not take me too long to complete.
So that is two projects. I then thought well I cannot really pick the ones I want to do as there are too many to chose from so I will use the Random Number generator. So I alternated between the two lists to have one non sampler project and then a sampler one. If the projects are really large I will work on them for 30 days and then return them to the lists for reselection when I have worked my way through the 16 projects below.

Alongside these projects I will still be doing a couple of SAL's and a card exchange. These are the 2013 Ornament SAL, the LHN Little Sheep Virtues, Polstitches Hardanger SAL and the FWC Card Exchange.
Whilst I was going through my 169 started projects I gave a rough calculation as to how long it would take me to complete them all. If I stitched for 2 hrs each day it would take me well over 6 years. Of course I don't always stitch each day and sometimes only for a few minutes. So it will be a very long time and was my reason for doing this. Now to make it happen. Wish me luck :-)
