2016 End Of Year Summary

Hello all!

As we say goodbye to 2016 I thought I would look back and summarise my stitching for the year. This record is for my benefit so some (most) of you will probably find this very, very, very boring.


Number of WIPs brought forward from 2015 - 5 suspended, 7 large, 42 challenge = 54
Plus number of new starts - 1 large, 31 challenge, 15 smalls SAL, 11 others = 58
Less number of finishes - 26 challenge, 15 smalls SAL, 11 others = 52
Number of WIPs to carry forward into 2017 - 5 suspended, 8 large, 47 challenge = 60

I'm really pleased that, with the exception of just one large project and five Challenge pieces (which I have still stitched on) I finished all of my new starts during the year. Numbering 52, that's an average of one finish per week - yikes!

However, this was once again at the expense of my larger projects and my 2015 WIPs.

Over the course of the year I stitched for a total of 703 hours over 365 days, missing out just one day when I spent a very long time in A&E with my son from early evening to the early hours of the next morning (it was only for a fractured wrist but there were a few more urgent cases). I was absolutely gutted to break my stitching streak, which was 540 days in a row at that point, but we had a laugh about it, despite the pain he was in!

As for my plans for 2017, I'll post about them tomorrow.

All the best and
Happy stitching :)
