Dec. Smalls SAL and Stuff

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of stitchy goodies.  I bought myself about 30 charts because hubby doesn't know what to get.

I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog this year and a special thanks to those that leave comments.  I am still visiting your blogs and leaving comments but you don't get an email from me and no one can fix it.  Just know that I do read and comment.

I have read several blogs today that have done a year end post.  That would take me a week to do with all the pictures so I am going to do (hopefully) a short version.  I ended this year with 274 UFO's/WIP's.  I started 129 cross stitch projects this year and finished 18.  I also crocheted 2 baby blankets, 3 lapghans and 1 doggie blanket.

Onto next year.   I still have about 300 squares to crochet and than crochet the 800 squares together into 10 blankets by the end of April.  NO PROBLEM.  I HOPE to have 54 cross stitch projects fiinished by the end of April.  MIGHT NEED SOME LUCK WITH THIS ONE.  Yes, I am starting 366 cross stitch projects next year.  (I was tested and yes I'm certified crazy.)  LOL  I have the fabric cut for January and February and pretty much know what the rest of my starts are.  I'm sorta saving December for those new charts that insist on being bought and started.

It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for the last Smalls SAL post.  This is being hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  We pick a small project to stitch on and post a finished picture on the last Wednesday of the month.

My orts for the year.



Thank you again for stopping by this year.  I hope you don't get tired of my posts next year.  My plans are to post my starts every couple days and post everyday in April.

HAPPY STITCHY NEW YEAR
Linda

366 is quite the ambition!! I panic when I think of how many hiding spaces I would have to use up if I were to begin that many. lol

Have a great Ringing In the New Year celebration :D

Brigitte said...

I loved reading your wrap-up of the year, Linda. And until now I have always thought that I had a lot of WIPs. But compared to you I have nothing, lol. I definitely love your attitude towards stitching - a lot of WIPs can make a stitcher happy :)
Great afghans that you crocheted.
And good luck with your 366 new starts in 2016.
Happy New Year!

Justine said...

Happy New Year Linda! Your latest little finish is cute and really pops on that lemon fabric. And great progress on Cinderella's Castle.
Wishing you best of luck with your stitchy goals in 2016.

Happy new year
With lots of stitchy blessings x

Annie said...

Oh my goodness! Wow, I'm exhausted just reading your post lol:) The best thing is that when I feel like I have too many projects on the go and too few finished, I will think of YOU! And I will feel instantly better LOL! Wishing you a VERY Happy New Stitching Year - you'll need it lol:)) Greetings to your furbabies too:)

gominam said...

With your purchases there's more WIPs in store for 2016, hooray! I forgot to take a picture of my Orts for the year, nice idea, you really had a great year:) Looking forward to your stitching updates next year. Have a Happy New Year:)

Rachel Tomkins said...

Linda, surely being certified "crazy" is a bit of an understatement?! Wouldn't "insane" be more accurate?! You're going to have well over 600 WIPs by the end of next year so maybe 2017 should be a year of 365 finishes?!
Anyway, good luck with all of your stitching and goals. I look forward to seeing how you will get on. :)

Kaelyn Angelfoot said...

Woo-hoo!What a fabulous year for you and it sounds like you have an amazing one planned for next year. Happy stitching!

linda said...

Good luck with all your plans Linda sounds like you are going to be super busy, Happy New Year to you and your family. :) xx

cheryl said...

I can't wait to see what you do in 2016. (You may have to invite all of your blog followers to a WIP party at the end of the year.) ha-ha. Happy New Year!

Vickie said...

My jaw drops every time you mention your plans! You are one busy beaver! Have a whole lot of fun!

Sarah L said...

Oh my, you are going to be busy! I admire those of you who start all those new charts... But I know I'd never get them done that way.

Looking forward to seeing them all. Happy new year!

Katie said...

You are crazy girl! Debbie would be proud though. I miss her so much. Have fun....that's all that matters.

Michele Stravato said...

366. Not sure I have that many projects in me, but you GO GIRL!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

You are truly the WIP Queen! Next year is going to be crazy in the best possible way.

Claudette497 said...

How could anyone get tired of your posts, lol? Something new every day! I'm going for 366 too - I'll be thinking of you (and Debbie!) with each and every start! The Castle looks great!

Preeti said...

Happy new year, Linda!! :) Good luck for your 2016 mega stitching plan!!
I don't call you crazy, you have set the benchmark so high for yourself now. I will keep that crazy tag until you mention, some day, you are going to start 1 each hour ;)

Heather said...

Wow Linda I don't envy you lol but I'm sure it'll be fun! You've had some pretty finishes and stitching I can't wait to see what you come up with this year!

Jan Gartlan said...

I look forward to watching your stitching journey in '16. You have great plans.

Melinda Forbes said...

You are amazing - Thank you for posting and sharing your stitching. Reading your blog reminds me how my hobby is my hobby no matter how many starts, or finishes or any other choices I may make.

Carol said...

I think you have the right idea about Christmas gifts, Linda!! Sure wish I had done that, too :)

You've had another amazing year of creativity--I'm sure 2016 will be just as good or even better!! Wishing you and your family a lovely New Year (and I do appreciate all the kind comments you've left on my blog throughout the years!)...

Vickie said...

366 starts!! This is causing me to have an anxiety attack!! Congrats on all your finishes this year. I love your Cinderella Caste!!

Good luck on getting everything finished by April!!!

Shebafudge said...

Two hundred and... (jaw drops in amazement!)
I am going to avidly watch your 366 new starts this year, just to see if you can keep up with them all. I would love to see a list of what you intend to stitch but that would undoubtably take up WAY to much stitching time to compile!

Really good luck with them all.

Happy New Year :)

Tiffstitch said...

Wow!! Good luck for next year and that is an impressive pile of ORTs. I'm glad you're not worried about the crochet squares while you're starting a new cross stitch project every day. :)

Sarah in Stitches said...

Lovely stitching! Congrats on another finish too :D

Annette-California said...

Happy New Year Linda!!! WOW 2015 was an amazing year for you stitching & all needleworks. I know you will do great for 2016:))
You got this! love Annette
