Checking in here WAY late, but I forgot to check on the full moon date!

Anyway, the final question for 2016 in WIPocalypse is: "Recap your accomplishments for the year! (Your finishes, your final before/after photos, etc)."

So here goes. No photos ...

My finishes in 2016 were scant becasue I was working toward finishing two massively BAP/WIPS.

• One got finished: the "Tropical Seas" colorway of "Roll Your Own Mandalas", which was completed in August...
• The other BAP didn't even get touched: "Save the Stitches" by Elizabeth Arnold, which languishes in the state it was on the January 2015 Wipocalypse!
• Another piece I stitched on during 2016 was my tavel needlepoint, Palm Tree Elegance", which was left with finished borders in July...
• In August, I started a birth sampler ("All Creatures") for a grand-nephew and it was completed and sent off in September...
• In September, I started a belated wedding sampler "Love Is" and left it half finsihed in October when I broke my wrist...
So, all i all, not a very outstanding year for stitchery!

My wrist is recovering, slowly, but I don't think I'm up to hand stitching or holding my Q-Snaps with my left hand quite yet. Still, I have hopes that that wedding sampler will make it to my niece before her first anniversary... "Palm Tree Elegance" may not have much opportunity for stitching since we don't have any road trips planned for this coming year. As for "Save the Stitches" - well, it may languish a bit more because I am being tempted by others to do a SAL on the Long Dog sample "Cardinal Points". The chart, 18ct fabric and threads are on order so we shall see if I am up to it...
