Final finishes for 2015

Here are my final finishes for 2015, two scarves, a child's sweater, a baby hoodie and vest.
It has been my most productive year since I started keeping track.
I finished 236 things, ranging from dish cloths to queen sized quilts.
I am looking forward to a great 2016.

Wipocalypse recap for 2015

This has been my best year for stitching in a long time.
Quite a few small finishes but more importantly, I have been making time to stitch.
I am looking forward to more stitching next year. 
Here are my finishes for the year.
In my next post I will have my goals for 2016.
Happy stitching.

Lots of December finishes

I am finishing the year with good progress.
First up, beaded ornaments.

Two more children's sweaters.

A ballet outfit for DGD doll.

I am hoping for several more finishes this week.

Wipocalypse November

Here is the 12th and final design in this series

Here is the final grouping of four. I hope to have them finished into cushions by the next update.

I had previously attempted starting a HAED but quickly abandoned it, I had problems with the fabric.

I have done a restart and this time it is going very well.
I hope to make more progress on this next year.

The question for this month, which designer has inspired me?
It would be Marilyn Levitt Imblum.
I have finished several of her designs and hope to finish more in the next year.
I love her blending of colours.
The designs are a delight to stitch and I love that there is almost no back stitching, the designs do not need it as the skilful use of colour gives the required definition.
