Bullet Journal Stitching List(Long with photos)

My dd  introduced me to Bullet Journals and I thought it might actually work for me. I do keep lists and journals and I needed a way to keep a calendar and my lists together. If you want to find out more, try . It was where I looked.

Here is my list: 
 I like having a spot to mark when I have completed a task which is why there is a little box to the left of each project. (Why I put one in front of Reptiles is beyond me as that won't be done anytime soon!) These are just projects that I currently have started and want to see completed.
Joseph just needs some white beads and then he goes to the finishing pile.
 Blue SOTM(Flowers of Italy) needs two squares redone and the background stitch put in. The background is a pain and takes a bit of time. Good thing to do while watching tv.
 ANG is a totally new project that I can't show you. It is for the Chapter Project Book, maybe....ANG Chapter Project Books

The next two are Drawn Thread Sampler (DTS). If I would just do the smaller one, I would be close to finished. But nooooooo! I needed to do the large one too. And I can no longer meet with my stitching friend to work on my piece. Hopefully we can regroup and find a time to meet. This is too pretty to live in my basement.

 This is my felted bag. DD started it ages ago and did make it into a bag. I am redoing it.
 This is Reptiles. I have almost finished a page of it. I find it quite addicting once I start working on it. Do you think I can finish it in three years for my son's college graduation?

Several of these projects have hard due dates. The most pressing is the ANG project as it MUST be done by November 1. Blue SOTM should be worked on before the second week in October and I am supposed to have the felted bag finished by October 6. Drawn Thread is to stitched by March 2017(lots of time) and I want to get Joseph ready to hang for Christmas.
Sorry for such a long post, but this stuff has been rattling in my brain and I needed to get it out!  Do you all make lists and prioritize your stitching? Or are you one of those stitchers who only works on one project at a time?

Great list Beth. I try, but they usually only last for a few days.

Great ideas and stitching! I find lists are very helpful in keeping me on the right track, although it doesn't always work.

Bea said...

Love the variety of your projects. I tend to have one large and one small on the go - and try desperately to avoid things with deadlines. lol

Beth, they say great minds think alike. Guess what I started on the 17th? A Bullet Journal. I was SO excited to see you started one, too! Mine is in a simple composition notebook because we had several of them on hand. Last night I was searching images on Pinterest and Instagram for ideas. I have lists in so many different locations, I love the idea of keeping them all in one journal.

I love all of your projects! I added my list of UFOs to work on (that I shared on my blog and promptly forgot at the beginning of the year), in hopes it will remind me to make those projects priorities. At the moment, I tend to work on whichever project has a blogging deadline coming up.

Great projects! I keep lists but unless the project is for a gift, I don't really have deadlines. I work on what I feel like working on and start new projects whenever I feel like it.

Great work! Love the drawn thread work sampler.
I looked at the Bullet Journal website and it seemed unnecessarily complicated to me! I have a simple page-per-week diary and I write a list at the back of it for my stitching goals. My WIPs for the year go on my blog. I have a smaller month-to-view diary for my work shifts and appointments.
