Progress and YOTA

I am very pleased with my progress of my new start and have spent all this last week just stitching this.
It is so pretty and as it grows I love it more and more!
 
 But it is this WIP that I am going to use for YOTA Year of the acronym is a plan to finish off WIPs.
 And the quilt that I am sewing is this tulip design, which  I will sew at my sewing class and for a week of evenings too.

I intend to rotate these three WIPs, I want to work on each one for a week of evenings and see how I go.
Of course things happen and maybe I won't be able to, but my intentions are to stitch and sew each evening.. although I do have my Italian evening class one evening and also that has an afternoon taken up with home work.. yes home work. But the classes are not cheap and I would like to be able to make myself understood when we holiday there, so no point doing the class if I don't make the effort at home.
So what are you doing? I have been reading blogs and I did note not so many stitchers are having a new start for the first 15 days of January.. but lots else going on.
I have so many charts I need to be more focused and try to get them done.
So ...a presto and ciao!
