The Stats are:
WIPs at start of year : 12New Starts : 54
Finishes : 53
WIPs at end of Year : 13

As far as my 2006 goals went I did pretty well, the only goal I didn't meet was to finish Dragon Ride but as I've worked on it steadily throughout the year I'm not particularly disappointed on that one.

My goals for 2007 are:

Above all to enjoy my stitching :)

I'd like to finish: Dragon Ride, Wayward Garden, Dragon Virtues and Forget Me Knot's In stitches Album
I would like to make significant progress on Maria Spence and CA Well's Pyramid Etui
I'm not going to make any goals as to new starts because that is entirely down to what is screaming at me the loudest when I have a free slot in my rotation.


Congratulations if you made it to the end of this post LOL I'd like to thank everyone who has read and commented on my blog this year, you've all made a difficult year a lot easier and your comments mean a lot to me. I'd like to wish you all a great 2007.

Karoline - for 2006 I'm grateful that you organized the GTG in Leeds for Kate and myself, and that you came down to London for the London GTG - you definitely helped make my 2006 a year to remember!

I'm impressed with all your finishes for 2006!

Yikes, I can't believe how many things you finished in one year. I hope you are feeling great about that.
