2018 wrap up

I love this quote by Dr. Seuss.  This card is meant as a birthday card for my niece, but could be used for many occasions and seems appropriate to post on the last day of the year.  It was also my last start in 2018.  218 starts in 2018. I didn't plan it that way, but I enjoy the symmetry in the numbers.  I tried really hard to finish all of my starts this year and spent most of December finishing pieces from prior months.  Sadly, I only finished 217.  I have one Halloween piece from "StichMaynia that I couldn't finish. It's stitched on 36 count beige fabric that is driving my eyes bonkers. I decided to put it away for a while and finish it later in 2019.

So my year wrap up

218 starts with 217 finishes
     1 finish from 2015 UFOs
    29 finishes from 2016 UFOs
    29 finishes from 2017 UFOs
   158 finishes from 2018 starts

It's amazing what you can accomplish when your kids are off in college and you are unemployed for 4 months!  I plan to continue with the Crazy Facebook Challenge with a start a day for Jan-March and then will focus on some larger UFOs from years past. At least that's the plan,..

2018 wraps up in Colorado with a cold and snowy day. My new job continues to go well and I survived my first Christmas season back in retail.

I wish all of you the very best in 2019,
