2018 in review

As the year draws to a close, and I set about my ‘2018 in review’, I can’t help but marvel at my stitching progress.

My goal this year was 50 finishes. Yes, 50. More than double last year’s goal of 20. I knew a lot of my finishes would be small, but I didn’t realize how many would be fairly large! More than that I thought it might take all year to finish 50, so I was surprised when I reached 50 in November, and ultimately breezed past that to 54 finishes!

So let’s get this 2018 in review post on the road! All pictures will be found throughout my blog. I’ll be adding some of my favorites on this post to make it easier for you. You may note some finishes are out of order. That’s because they’re in order of when I started them, and I don’t include that date in this list.

So that’s it. That’s all the stitching I’ve done this year. What a year it’s been. I’ve done a lot in my etsy store as well, and if you haven’t checked that out you should! So now that 2018 in review is over, how have you done? Did you accomplish your goals?

Until next time, Happy Stitching, and Happy New Year!
