The Stats are:
WIPs at start of year : 15
New Starts : 24

Finishes : 31
WIPs at end of Year : 8

As far as my 2007 goals went:

Above all to enjoy my stitching - Done :)

I'd like to finish: Dragon Ride, Wayward Garden, Dragon Virtues and Forget Me Knot's In stitches Album – Dragon Ride and Wayward Garden are done, the stitching is done on Album and the finishing is in progress, Dragon Virtues Afghan is my current focus piece and is within a month or so of being finished

I would like to make significant progress on Maria Spence and CA Well's Pyramid Etui – Done, almost at the halfway point on Maria and I’m currently working on Pyramid and am probably about a third of the way through.

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. - LOL

I'm not making any specific stitching resolutions for 2008 with the new baby other than to enjoy my stitching and when I get the chance to stitch to take it!

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 your comments mean a lot to me. I'd like to wish you all a great 2008

I enjoyed reading thru your list(s)&goals. I don't know if I could actually do that with my stuff. The thought of writing down my WIPs makes me cringe. This year, I'd like to focus on a couple SALs & the repro kits in my stash. I seem to buy more than I stitch!!!
