2012 – The Stitching Year in Review

As noted earlier, the WIPocalypse was a definite success and allowed me to make great inroads on the WIP pile!

I started 2012 with 47 (!!) WIPs and finished 14 of them.

This includes a couple in the last week while on vacation:

Mary Garry’s Sew & Sew – on white 25-ct evenweave, 1-over-1 with DMC & GAST threads.

Textile Heritage’s Tower of London

I also started & finished an additional 13 pieces for a total of 27 cross stitch finishes.  I have six pieces that I started this year and are being carried over 😉

I did a bit of knitting this year, finishing 11 pieces.

One wool sewing project was also completed..a pocket for my new lucet 🙂

That’s a grand total of 39 finishes for 2012!

Taking into account the finishes, new starts and a half-dozen pieces that are going to be relegated to the “retired” drawer, I’m starting 2013 with 32 WIPs.

My goal of having fewer at the end of 2012 than at the beginning?  DONE!
