Let's start the post with some very evenly spaced pie:
If any one pie sums up this year, it will be this one. 2021 was intended to be my Year of Rotation following two years where The Discworld Mapp was my focus piece.
You've seen most of the projects on that pie already, CCN Main Street and Hands on Design were both finishes this month. Fairy Idyll was a WIPGO Goal met, Stoney Creek is rolling over to next month to complete the final three Days of Christmas.
That leaves my Bothy Threads 12 Days of Christmas. I am in a race against time to complete another Day before the end of the year!
I'm going to shift to the Stoney Creek 12 Days tomorrow and knock them out to see them finished this year and then return to this one. Some of my stitching days are going to be a little shorter than usual because of working more shifts. Short ones but even so, not getting home until 3.40pm still cuts down the stitching time!
