June wasn't a bad month at all - I think relaxing my goals got me focused again and now I intend to work hard at reducing my stitching WIP list between now and the end of the year. If I can reduce it by between 5 and 10 projects by 31st December I'll be happy. Quilting wise I want to get five more tops done over the next six months and some smaller projects that I have in my stash.
