Final finish for 2013

I’d like to wish all my followers, family and friends a Very Happy New Year – wishing you all the best for 2014.
I am also happy to report that I have finally finished the teddy bear birth sampler for Savannah.  I will take it to be framed next week and will then put it aside until her 2nd birthday.  I still have lots of WIP’s to work on in 2014 as well as numerous other projects I hope to make a start on too.
Achievements for 2013
Outstanding WIP’s completed 4 out of 17 – not a great number but at least it’s four ticked off the list.  I’ve also had to abandon two of them as I can’t find the patterns so I have 11 long outstanding WIP’s to carry forward into 2014.
New starts in 2013  was 7 and I completed 5 off them so only two to carry forward into 2014.
Total completed for 2013 was 9 out of 24 so if I take away the abandoned projects I have 13 to carry forward.
Total books read in 2013was 14
Knitting projects finished was one out of two.  I never did get to finish the baby blanket (bought the new parents something instead) but I do intend to rectify the mistake I made and finish it this year – I’m sure a new baby will be born that I can give it to some time in the future LOL.
On reflection I think I achieved quite a lot along with my paper crafting projects and I'm looking forward to more stitching, knitting, reading and sewing in 2014.

I have been reading back through your posts - and a belated Happy New Year! I seem to have plenty of WIP projects too .. .. perhaps I had better concentrate on finishing one or two this year.
hugs, and hope to see you soon.
