A Stitching Year In Review

The year has almost come to a close and this is a great time to reflect over the past year and see what I have accomplished with my stitching.

This year I have stitched:

  • 12 Blessings of Christmas by Lizzie Kate - Very close, but no cigar
  • Red Thread by Bent Creek - Halfway there
  • Angel of Winter by Lavender Angels - Perhaps we shouldn't disscuss this one as there are no more than 100 stitches done on her (yes I am very bad!)
  • Five exchanges for Fair & Square completed
  • Five exchanges for Hooked On Exchanging completed
  • 3/4 of the way through the Little House Needeworks RR
  • Stitching Bloggers Birthday Club sent - I never received my gift and this is very sad
  • Ten finishes
  • 9 WIP's
  • 3 UFO's

Next year, I hope to get the following done:

  • Finish 12 Blessings of Christmas by Lizzie Kate
  • Finish Red Thread by Bent Creek
  • Make a real go at Angel of Winter by Lavender Angels
  • Finish the Little House Needeworks RR
  • Participate in at least three exchanges for Fair & Square
  • Participate in at least three exchanges for Hooked On Exchanging
  • Participate at least three exchanges for Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange
  • Get a good amount stitched on the Me, Myself and I RR
  • Stitch 12 biscornu for the Basket Of Biscornu SAL
  • Finish all my WIP's and have no more than 3 news ones by the end of the year
  • Make a go at the following smalls:
  • Petit Hornbook Noir (Mon Ami Pierre)
  • Bluebirds and Daisies (Blue Ribbon Designs)
  • Providence & Tea with Jane (The Sampler Girl)
  • Wishing you all a safe and happy new year!
