2016 Hits The Halfway Mark

Well, almost! With four days left until June 1, it may as well be the halfway point. This year has simply flown by at the speed of light. Methinks the next half of the year is going to be even busier. I am hoping to finish more stitching goals, but I am not sure where I am going to find the time. I have only finished six projects from the Bin O'Shame so far this year. I had wanted to finish six more, to make it one per month. I suppose I should not be discouraged quite yet. After all, that's six project done that weren't finished before! :)

At any rate, here is the stitching breakdown so far:

 Bin O'Shame  projects completed: 6

Kit Mountain projects completed: 3

Leaflet Silo/Lending Library projects completed: 18

Total Number Of Stitched Projects: 27


I know, I know! I can sit down now!  I really do not have anything to complain about, but goals are goals. :)

I managed to get this one finished up in time. I need to find the perfect frame for it this weekend. I hope there are some good sales going on right now.
