The remaining two projects were intended to be new starts for Dark October but by then I was Focused on Finishes so I decided to leave them for another time. 

Finally, I am currently working on my "20 in '20" list.  People keep giving me new ideas!  I have already added my "12 Days of Stitchmas" projects.  I think these might count for four entries as there are four leaflets!

Jo, congratulations on so many gorgeous finishes. I can't wait to see what you have on your list of 20!

Carol said...

As always, I'm inspired by the number and variety of your projects, Jo! Wonderful finishes and beautiful works in progress--really looking forward to watching Gathering Eggs grow in 2020! Happy New Year :)

Sandy said...

wow - 13 finishes is great!! Loved watching the progress and can't wait to see what your 20 in 20 will be. I'm not going to be foolish this year as I'd like to keep my WIP's south of 100 :)

Rachel said...

You did fantastically well with your WIPocalypse projects this year, especially considering how many others you finished as well. Can't wait to see your 2020 lists and plans and cheer you along again. :)

Kay said...

Well done. Every time I see your Gathering Eggs it makes me want to start mine, however I have decided only one new start per month and this is the year I get through all of my present wips. x

Mary said...

Congratulations on 13 finishes!! That is impressive and I'm looking forward to seeing what you complete in 2020. Have a Happy New Year!

Sandy said...

Wonderful collection of stitches. I love that Satsuma Street Nest Egg.

You did very well with your list this year, considering that two of these WIPs never had a chance to be finished this year to begin with!
