December WIPocalypse Recap of Accomplishments


WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi of Measi's Musings.

The main focus of my WIPocalypse this year is my "14 in '14" a list of 14 projects I wanted to complete in 2014.  In the last month I have worked on three of the list.  As this month's topic is a Recap of our Accomplishments over 2014 I will show you the progress on all 14 designs!  Do I hear a "WooHoo"?!!

1. Joan Elliott Green Goddess - Completed

2. Prairie Moon Thine is the Trick and the Treat - Progress as a WIP

Beginning of the year:


3. Maria's Wedding - Completed

4. Kat's Baby - Completed

Emily Peacock Circus Font

5. Teresa Wentzler You Were Hatched - Unstarted, carried over to 15 in '15

6. Primitive Hare Spooky Countdown - Completed

7. The Little Stitcher 12 Days of Christmas - 11 stitched, one to go!

8. Joan Elliott February Diary - UFO

9. Just Nan Winter Typography - Progress made on new start this year 

10. Firewing Dragon - Unstarted

11. Stitcheranon Chart - Unstarted, carried over to 15 in '15

12. A Mon Ami Pierre Noel Blanc - Completed

13. Shepherd's Bush Sampler - Unstarted, carried over to 15 in '15

14. Sam's Sampler Jannlynn Gathering Honey - Progress made on this WIP

Beginning of this year


So far the tally is:

6 completed (I am including the Little Stitcher in this because it will be done for the TUSAL post)
3 progress made
5 unstarted or now UFO

That's not too bad, better than 2013 anyway when I had only 2 finishes, 3 WIPs and 8 not stitched!

I have set my target for my 15 in '15 and here is a nice collage of them.  No names on them yet, I wonder how many you can identify from the photo?

New Starts:

Finally, I must apologise to all the blogs I follow and comment on, I have not been visiting you all as regualarly as I would like.  Since working quite obsessively on Green Goddess I have discovered how much fun it is to stitch for long periods of time and internetting has been cut down accordingly.  Unfortunately that means my friends' blogs.  I will try to visit you more often!!

Awesome stitching and finishes this year Jo. You'll get them all done next year.

oooh I recognize some of them, like the ones you just showed! And the Frosted Pumpkin (btw did you see the 2015 SAL? I about died on the theme eeee) and the "You were hatched..." dragon looks VERY familiar but I can't put my finger on why. I think it was something I saw on LiveJournal.

G'luck on your goals, weee~ :D

Well done Jo, it does look like a LOT of stitching when you see them all together like that.
I really like the kingfisher one in your 2015 collage

Beautiful stitching! I love all your projects. Looking forward to more progress. I know how you feel about uninterrupted long periods of stitching. :-)

Well done Jo you achieved lots this year. A nice collection for next year too. I spy a new baby it for you? Lol

jocondine said...

I love this post, I feel like been invited in a great 2014 retrospective event of a famous artist,
but where are the appetizers and petits fours ? xxx ;)

Astrids dragon said...

Wow, you have been busy! And now 15 this year?!

Maggee said...

Gosh--you got a LOT done this year! And even more scheduled for next year! You DO realize the year counts go UP...? It is such a shame that sometimes we have to decide between stitching or looking at stitching... sigh...

Annette-California said...

It was great to see your recap of all you've accomplished this year. WOW you did great!
Lovely new starts:) love Annette

Shebafudge said...

That is so spooky. I very nearly ordered the Halloween cubes, and the Christmas ones too, yesterday! Maybe you having them in you 15 for '15 is a sign :)

Marcy said...

Looks like an excellent stitching year. My favorite is definitely the Noel Blanc sampler. I'm so happy you finished it -- it's absolutely lovely! I'm in the same boat about visiting blogs ... there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything :(
