My 2011 Annual Report of the Stitching

Hard to believe it’s the last day of 2011 already and tomorrow we’ll start a fresh new year. One of the benefits of keeping a stitching blog is it’s easy to look back through the posts and see what I’ve accomplished (or not accomplished) stitching wise for the year. So I present my 2011 annual report of the stitching…

Gosh, I feel like such a stitching slacker. I hope to accomplish more finishes and stitching time in 2012! I did have a few other random moments of stitching where I picked up a piece and put a few stitches in, an hour here, an hour there, but didn’t get progress pictures of them all. Will definitely do a better job of keeping track next year as well.

How did your year of stitching turn out? I’d love to hear from you.

Cheers to a fresh new year, may it be full of stitches!

  1. […] Last year alone I went through several episodes of blah where I would go an entire month without stitching. I started off 2012 pretty good and then recently things really dropped on me recently, I just wasn’t making time to stitch. […]

  2. […] Last year I didn’t have a lot of finishes to share at the end of the year, or even a lot of progress to share. Fortunately, 2012 has shaped up to be a nice year of stitching for me. Let’s have a look… […]
