December WIPocalypse Recap of the Year 2016

WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings

Each month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World.

The focus of my WIPocalypse will be my "16 in '16" which are 16 projects I particularly wanted to concentrate on in 2016.   The full list can be found on my WIPocalypse page where you can also find my secondary list "16 Series in '16".


So how did I do?  Answer - freaking amazingly well!  Probably my best WIPocalypse year ever!

I stitched on all 16 of my "16 in '16" and completed 12 of them, making really good progress on the other 4.  Here they are in no particular order:

Jannlynn – Gathering Honey - WIP

Teresa Wenztler – You were Hatched - Finished

Wow, that was definitely a very successful WIPocalypse year for you, Jo. SO many finished pieces and great progress on your WIPs. You couldn't have done better.
I always have a problem with stitching lists, somehow I never stay with the projects on my lists - but I don't stop making project lists, lol.
