Rotation/Plans in Cross stitching

Hello there my sweet stitching sisters! I hope this finds you well. I wanted to give a shout out to +Khristine Doiron  for introducing me to working on my projects in a rotation. I called on my stitching community for help last year because I was overwhelmed. I kept starting projects because it was a "Oh I like that! Must stitch it"  thing with me and I have had as much as 20 WIPs at once. I know it may not seem like a lot to others but I got overwhelmed big time. What started me was I had seen so many other stitchers  stitching ornaments for their Christmas Trees and I want to do that as well  because I really didn't have any and  I had so many projects started I wasn't sure I would accomplish it. But with advice I resolved and scolded myself and started doing projects on a rotation and now I have a nice little rotation going and a few small projects done. With the help of SALs I have also managed to get 3 rather large(to me) projects completed. I have chosen a large project as my focus piece with 3 small projects. This is how I have rotated.
First up Stardust Fairy I've made more progress on this one than I have when I first started it. I had put her away to finish up a Birthday present for my mom.  Anyway this is where I had left off........
I started back on her last year.  +Bekka Stitches  is also working on this one and   she along with the other stitchers have helped tremendously in motivating me and I   in turn motivate her and the others. When I found out thru talking with her that she had this one too I wanted to bring mine back out so now we are both stitching on her in hopes of getting it done by March so that we can start a Mira for the Community  Mira March SAL we will begin on March 1st. So with out further ramblin' here is where I am today.
I have more done than this I just haven't taken a photo yet.

    Now for the smalls I have in rotation.... I am working on 12 Days of Christmas by Michaela Learner
 I have one complete - Partridge in a pear tree which you can see the picture Here

I am also working on Daffy Cat's Reindeer so far I have 4 of 9 complete and working on #5 Stocking Reindeer( far right). Progress so far....
My rotation consist of  - Every other day - Focus piece.On the other days I rotate the 2 smalls. Example - Monday Focus Piece, Tuesday Reindeer,Wednesday - Focus, Thursday- 12 Days etc. I sometimes just work on 1 small in one week along with my focus piece. The reindeer don't take as long to stitch as 12 Days. I hope that this helps those who wish to start a rotation. If you need advice or motivation please ask and ye shall receive :) There's plenty of us in the Community  ( this is a private community)(feel free to join) that can and will help you and remember no question is a silly question. Doesn't matter what it is don't be afraid to ask!
That's all for now..... Happy Stitchin' and May you have smokin' needles xxxx
