My rotation

     Okay, I'm doing pretty well on my rotation.  I've got the big bags coming via Peggy in NY (thanks again, Peggy, you're a lifesaver) and I've decided exactly what's gonna be in my rotation.  Of course, I forgot two things when I ordered Qs, so now I need two more.  Typical.  Hobby Lobby, here I come!  I need floss too, so nbd, right?  Anyways, I've decided to work on one project for two weeks and then switch to a different one.  I still have to find a randomizer that will list them in a random order, but I'm sure I can do that easily enough.  Anyways, the projects in my rotation are:
  1. Bubbles (HAED, Selina Fenech)
  2. Astral Lion (Dimensions)
  3. Country Bloomers (Jeremiah Junction)
  4. Story Keeper (HAED, Selina Fenech)
  5. Calendar Partwork (India Grace Designs, hardanger)
  6. Achoo (Dimensions)
  7. In Her Garden (Dimensions)
  8. Memorial for my dad (Rosa Winter)
  9. Marguerite (India Grace Designs, hardanger)
  10. Meerkat ~ Mere Cat (Heritage Stitchcraft, Peter Underhill)
  11. Impossible Love (HAED, Selina Fenech)
  12. Queen of Peace (Miribilia)
  13. Shore Patrol (JCA)
  14. Fredrick the Literate (Dimensions, Charles Wysoki)
  15. Desert Garden Mandala (Chatelaine, Martina Rosenberg)
  16. Midnight Hunting (Dracolair Creations)
  17. Monopoly (Hasbro) 
     Yes, I have a thing for Dimensions pieces (even though I hate the multicolored charts) and Selena Fenech.  As pieces get finished, I'll be adding new things into the rotation in their spot.  I know, there's a lot to do, but I do like to stitch, so it'll be fine.  As long as I live to 532 years old, I'll be good, lol.  Each chart name is a link to the chart except for the one my friend Rosa Designed for me.  I don't have a way to show that one as it's a Pattern Maker chart.  Or do I?  Hmmmm...   BRB.  Okay, I figured it out.  There isn't a pic of Monopoly, so I can't link that, but I do have a pic of the memorial.  I just did a screenshot of the pattern showing stitches instead of symbols.  Then saved to paint, and viola!!  I'm so smart sometimes, lol.  Anyways, those are my rotation pieces. I'll also be working on Portrait of Christ on Sundays as part of two SALs, until I finish it up.  Then I'll be working on that week's focus piece instead.  Now I'm off to find a randomizer.  Ta ta, ladies and gents!!

Great Rotation list! I used to do that...but now I have 2 projects that JUST have to be finished. They are for other people so I am plugging away on those two things!

Nancy said...

Wow, that's quite a rotation list! I have tried rotations too but right now I seem to do better working on one project until finished. Of course my projects are a quicker stitch then some of yours. With those large projects you do have to rotate to keep the energy level up!

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Vickie. I've been working on just one, but I have so many things started. On that list of seventeen, only five are new starts. The rest are already in progress. I just want to finish some of the things I have started. I know, right!! I don't know how that's gonna work for me Nancy. I've been working mostly on a Chat, Desert Garden Mandala. And I've considered each part finish a finish. So with rotation, I don't know if I'll get "finishes" as often, you know? We'll see if it keeps the energy up!!

Joke said...

That's a great list! But, may I say, so many!! I'll try to keep up with you ;)

Bonnie Brown said... is the best site i've seen for random. you should be able to copy from your list and randomize :)

Mrs Dibble said...

Quite a restrained list compared to some I have seen....but you do need to rotate....get a bit bored with one and need a fresh challenge....anyway, that is how I rationalise it for myself!!!!!

Gabi said...

Wow that's an impressive WIP list. Hope the rotation works for you.

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Joke. I figured if I was gonna do a rotation, I may as well start some new projects I've been wanting to start for quite some time!! Thanks Bonnie. I used and put in randomizer. It asked how many items I wanted to randomize, and I said seventeen. It then gave me a list of one through seventeen in random order. I was happy I didn't have to type everything in again, lol. We'll see how I do. Usually, I just work on whatever is screaming the loudest, and I tend to work on that piece for quite a while... Thanks Gabi. Only one way to find out!! Into the fray, lol.

Joysze said...

Whoah... that's a nice, long list of rotation. Looking forward to seeing the WIPs. :D

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Joysze. Now I'm looking at it and going, what can I finish quickly so I'll have room here for the new Chat that I want to get?!? LOL, she just posted to the support group about a new mystery, and I'm really interested. I've never done a mystery before, but there's a first time for everything!!

Val said...

Wow - lots of work there Julie ... I especially love the Fairy flower garden on your blog and have not seen that one before ...

Carolyn NC said...

Awesome rotation list - definitely one to keep you busy!

mdgtjulie said...

Yeah, I know Val. I never saw a BAP I didn't like, lol. I love Fairy Garden too. I just can't decide what color to put it on!! Yes, it will Carolyn. But that's all right. Busy is good!!

Hazel said...

You have some lovely wips in your rotation. x

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Hazel. I love them all, lol. Hence the rotation!!

JaanaS said...

Rotation is a very good idea! Me too, I have several wips and this might work for me too. Thank you for this great idea! I like your list.

mdgtjulie said...

Jaana, this is all new to me, lol. I'm gonna give it a shot, and see how it works. IDK if I'll remember to change projects on Sundays though, so we shall see. Glad I could inspire you! And thanks, I love everything on my list!
