WIPocalypse report for January 2013

It looks like another full moon, which means it is time for another WIPocalypse post.
If you don't know what it is all about, please check it out!
This year Measi has also added themes to add to the fun.  The theme for this month is:

Theme: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!

Well my name is Bonnie I am live in a small town east of Toronto, ON.  I have been stitching for quite a few years, but my passion have grown 10 fold since meeting a great group of ladies almost 5 years ago who are great enablers.  I also have been enabled by a great group on Facebook called the Superstar Serial Starters and Divine Disciplined Divas (SSS/DDD)

My WIP's at the beginning of the year are (and in no particular order):

As of today, I have only worked on Smaug and the Lizzie Kate

Christmas ABC @ January 26'13

Smaug @ January 26'13

 This year I planned to do 2 new starts on January 1st.  I started the AAN Maple leaf with my stitching friends, and the Sampler Gameboard as a SAL with the SSS/DDD Board on Facebook.
The gameboard was started in the afternoon, but haven't managed to work on it much since then.

I stayed up until midnight on new years to start the maple leaf.  It was a fun stitch and managed to finish it on January 14th.

AAN - Maple leaf
January 1-14 2013

My goals for the year at the moment are:

  • Finish Smaug - hopefully by the end of spring if not sooner

  • Start Belle's Letters (B) by GigiR on February 1st with the SSS/DDD Facebook group

  • Start Fortunate Traveller with Dani, Christin, and Beatrice on May 1st.

  • Stitch an ornament a month

  • Re-start my HAED (for the 3rd time) and try to get a page done.

  • Try to reduce the other WIP's I have going.

I do have a few other little finishes to share, but will wait until the Ornament SAL post at the end of the month :)

I think you're off to a great start this year! The Gameboard is one design that I love but never got around to buying it.
Smaug is looking awesome too!
