March TUSAL~Giveaway Winners~Rotation Plan

Even though the title makes my post sound like its going to be long...I'll make it all as short as possible!

First off we March TUSAL picture!

I finally found something to move my ORTs to, from my jelly jar.  I found this vase under my sink, from a beauiful bouquet of tulips my hubby gave me a bit ago.   The vase is HUGE, but that just entices me to stitch more so I can try to get it at least half full by the end of this year!   I'll keep using my jelly jar monthly and transfer them over.

Next up... my LHN giveaway winners!!   Here is a shot of the full list of participants (sorry for the bad picture, I used Paint in a hurry!)

I chose two winners (via random generator) to win the following charts (in this order):

LHN - Strawberry House

LHN Tall Pines

And....the WINNERS are........ (those dots are my drumroll!).......

YAY!   So Strawberry House will be making its way to Joysze at Random Ramblings and Tall Pines will find a home with Carrie at Carrie's Cross Stitch 

(Please email me your mailing addresses!  leslidaniels@gmail.comI have a few surprise items to throw into the packages as well!  :)

And finally.....My Rotation Plan!

Thank you to everyone that responded to my last post about how you rotate your work!  I LOVED all the great ideas!!  I thought about it long and hard ...and I decided to be a "deadline rotationer"  (is rotationer even a word?).   I have this "thing" about not putting a piece down until I finshed the page or the section or deadlines seems to be the way to go with me!

Here's the schedule I've come up with so far.  I don't have timelines/dates to each deadline, once I finish the first one on the list, I'll move to the next one.  I did give myself an overall goal date for this list, and if I meet it, I'll make a new list!
  1. Page 4 and 7 of Coral (page 7 is just under page 4 with only 3 rows of work, so it made sense to work together)
  2. Page 1 of Wings
  3. Page 5 and 8 of Coral
  4. Page 2 of Cathedral
  5. Page 6 and 9 of Coral (FINISHED!)
  6. Page 1 of Nature's Beauty
  7. Page 1 of Blue Moon
  8. Page 1 of Lanterns (new start)
  9. Page 1 Moonlight (new start)
  10. Page 3 of Cathedral
  11. Page 2 of Wings
  12. Page 2 of Nature's Beauty (FINISHED!)
My target date to finish this list is July 1st

This gives me around 14 weeks (so about 1 week per line item).  This is a stretch goal and I'll be happy if I get even a little close!

Thanks again for everyone's rotation input and congratulations to the giveaway winners!

Happy Spring!

I won!! This is the first time I have won anything since I started blogging! Thank you so much Lesli! I can't wait to stitch Tall Pines!

Congrats to the winners! I LOVE your TUSAL vase, what a great looking jar :)

Your rotation schedule sounds ambitious but also awesome! I might have to do that if my 10 hour rotation ultimately doesn't work out. Can't wait to see how it goes!

I'm new here, over from Carrie's blog. Are "orts" the pieces from when you run out of thread and have to start a new one?
