Wow. It's been... oh... 10+ years since I've owned a blog. People still do this, I've found. Lots of people. I have some work to do to catch up, so please bear with the chaos for a bit.
In all honesty, I started this blog a year ago. Almost to the day. I thought a blog would be a great add-on to my Flosstube channel. The more social media the better, right? Funny how this page just languished into... ohhhh... nothing. But, it's about to change for 2018! Yessiree! Let's start, shall we?
WIPOCALYPSE 2018! DUN-DUN-DUNNNNNNNNNN
I have a LOT of WIPs, guys. I mean, a LOT. I know that some people have more, but man. I'm running out of room to store stuff. So, when someone (could have been a Flosstuber, could have been on a Facebook group - I'm not even sure at this point) mentioned the blog event "Wipocalypse" and then mentioned that it expanded into a Facebook group, well... I had to check it out! And here we are.
I've picked about 12 projects that will be a focus to finish in 2018. Some are pieces I've had for several years, some are projects that I just really want to get done, and some are so close to finishing that it's just silly NOT to finish them.
15. BONUS/NOT PICTURED: I have this king-size quilt top that has been folded up in my craft room since 2008, easy. It's time for me to finally but the borders on (if I even need them... this quilt is YUGE), pick out some backing fabric, slap it on the long-arm and get it quilted. My quilting friends shame me often because they remember when I started it. It's kind of a big deal. I'll give it it's own blog post when I finish it. IN 2018!
Okay, that's it. Those are my focus pieces for 2018. Obviously I'll be stitching on other things. I've got several SAL's I'm participating in, and a new start or two may crop up. But I'm REALLY excited about these projects. Also, I'm pretty committed to FFO'ing some stuff this year. I have zero cross-stitch on my walls.
Happy New Year, friends! May 2018 find us all in abundance of DMC, crafty time and coffee!
