What a wild stitching ride it's been this year! It is utterly amazing to me just how much I accomplished in the span of one year. I went through my office/craft room for the final time on Monday and took one last inventory. I straightened a lot out and culled even more. Here it is, the final Bin O'Shame and Kit Mountain inventories for the year 2015:
I took one more inventory on the Bin O'Shame and decided to pull from the queue the following:
This means that next year, I will have a total of 29 in the Bin O'Shame to finish stitching. Maleficent and Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow are too large to try and finish in one year, so those I am not counting them towards the final total. I have set a goal of 12 of these projects for next year. This will mean one per month, which is really not that bad. That is the total number that I set for myself for my 'unofficial' yearly rollover goal. Naturally, some will take longer than others, but that should sort itself out.
I also did some major culling of Kit Mountain. I kept it to the ones I knew I could conceivably stitch within the next couple of years and left it at that. Here are the numbers from that effort:
Once culled, those projects went back into Leaflet Silo. Honestly, this is a LOT more sensible of me. 113 kitted projects is just way too much. A vast majority of that number were either missing floss or fabric, so what was the point of that, I ask you? None, in my opinion. There is a mixture of small and larger projects in Kit Mountain so I should be able to tackle a few of those next year. I am really looking forward to the adventure that will be 2016.
Well, I had best be off. I hope everyone has the happiest of New Years!
