WIPocalypse 2013 Final Post

Time for the year end review of my WIPocalypse stitching.   I did accomplish most of the goals I set forth at the beginning of the year.  I completed several projects and made progress on many others.

 "To Everything A Season" Sampler 18"x 11" on 28 ct evenweave

This was one of my new projects during the year ... I love stitching it!  I am purposely trying to go slow and alternate it with other projects, to keep it available for the days when I need an easy stitch.  I am about 1/3 finished.

Of the 25 new projects I started during 2013, I finished 15 (mostly ornaments)!  They can all be seen on my Finishes Page.  I also completed a single WIP: Reindeer (shown below), bringing my total to 16 finishes.
from this:
to finished:
Reindeer was a hard project as the kit photo did not match the chart or the floss.  It was a Chinese knock-off kit sold at CVS a few years ago as a dollar item.  I finished the Santa in the series in 2012 ... and now I have finished this one!  I had to frog a lot and re-work the chart ... but yay!  all done!

I made progress on my Carousel Tiger and Carousel Zebra (so close to finishing).
from this: (barely started)

from this: (halfway)
to this: (nearly finished)
I also worked on all of my samplers, of which I have many.  I will be posting photos of them as I make progress throughout the year.

I wish you all good fortune and happiness for the upcoming new year.
Happy Stitching!
