Wow, where did 2015 go - it seems like every time I blink lately another day/week/month went by - I think I will have to stop blinking! (Dr Who fans will get the reference!!)
I thought today would be a good opportunity to look back on 2015 with regards to my stitching goals and tick off the achievements and move the unfinished ones onto another year!
As frequent readers will remember I signed up to do some crazy stitching challenges in 2015, the two main ones being;
*Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2015) - 31 starts for January
*2015 Crosstitch Crazy Event - 15 new starts over 15 days in January
The original post on my 2015 plans is here. I also set up a page on my blog to try and keep a track of all the stitched pieces/WIP's. The starting bit was easy enough... but the finishes... well that's another story!!
As well as the 2 Crazy challenges I also stitched throughout 2015 for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL blog, the Christmas Ornie SAL blog, the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL and the Alphabet Club.
So what are the numbers involved? Well....
New 2015 starts: 37
Old WIP's: 7
2015 Finishes: 20 (inc 3 x ABC Chats & 4 x Sneak Peak Halloween motifs)
2015 Final Finished Objects (FFO's): 5
WIP's left: 24 (inc ABC Chats as 1 item for the time being)
So what's in store for 2016?
**Cross Stitch Crazy 2016 - FB group - 15 starts in 15 days
**Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2016) - 31 starts for January (will inc WIP's as well as the new starts above)
**Stitch Maynia (FB group) - a number of different SAL's throughout the year
January SAL's listed below:
- 2016 Chatelaine Shenanigans SAL (Start a new Chatelaine or stitch on a Chatelaine WIP) - I have a Chatelaine WIP already
- New Year, New Start! (Jan 2016 - start something new!) - easy peasy....
- Year of Starts! (366 daily starts or 52 weekly starts or 12 monthly starts) - 12 monthly starts is the plan here
- Brooke's Books Year Long SAL! (Stitch one of Brooke's ornaments/characters/designs each month) - already stitching the Advent Animals
So as you can see plenty to be going on with......
Before I go let me leave you with a picture of what I have been stitching on for the last week or so. I was hoping that this would be a last finish for 2015 but things haven't quite gone to plan... but here he is at the end of 2015 - Nora Corbett's Christmas Eve Couriers - Prancer.

I hope that everyone has the most wonderful stitchy 2016....
