In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Good Bye to 2021

In just a few hours, it will be time for the ceremonial dumping of the ort jar.

I made my goal of 21 in '21--I actually completed 23 projects this year. Does that mean I get to count two of them for my 22 in '22 goal?

I tracked things a little differently this year. I've kept lists of completed projects for years, but I decided to also track the number of projects I started as well. I also tried to work on things that were WIP's or UFO"s. I did not say I couldn't start anything brand new, but at least I worked on some older projects.

There are 18 projects in the WIP/UFO list, and I finished 13. In no particular order:

Golden Accessories, Thistle Threads
Emie's Etui, Betsy Morgan
Strawberry Sewing Purse & Accessories, Theron Traditions
Tend Thy Sheep, Merry Cox
Imperial Gold Queen Stitch Needle Case, The Examplarery
Teeny Tiny Strawberry Hornbook, Theron Traditions
Strawberry Needle Case, Theron Traditions
ABC Strawberry, Tristan Brooks
Pineapple Strawberry, Tristan Brooks
Ode to Jane Austen, It's Fine-ally Finished
Stitcher's Envelope, Theron Traditions
Rebecah French, The Essamplaire
Christmas Sampler ornament, JCS Ornament issue (date not remembered)

There were 10 projects in the brand-new project category, and I finished 8. Again, no particular order:

A Needlewoman's Work Tray, It's Fine-ally Finished
Christmas Spirit Etui, Betsy Morgan
Holbein Strawberry, Periwinkle Promises
Spring Roundels, Tristan Brooks
Tudor Embroidery Sampler, Gutter Lane Embroidery
 Elizabeth Miniature, Amy Mitten
Christmas is Coming Etui, Tristan Brooks
Be of Good Cheer ornament, Tristan Brooks

I also stitched two small bargello designs for my former employer, which brings the grand total to 23.

Tomorrow I plan to start a brand new project, and I have two of the carry-overs in the pile by my chair. You'll see them on the first.

So Happy New Year to one and all!  May 2022 be better and people's hearts become kinder!
