Wipocalypse - post #12 or the final report, including some previously unseen finishes & made up biscornus ...

Dear all,

This post is going to make me cry. Since I haven't done a starting point post this year... this is what I will do this year sort of thing ... I now will need to try to remember all my wips. And also since I was doing so poorly on my goals I changed half way to a broad goal of 25 finishes (regardless of size). So this included a lot of smaller projects... but the goal was met.

Speaking of Stitcher Anon do check out her charts tab ... pdfs are currently on sale. I couldn't resist and bought one (which has been tempting me for some time now)...

my purchase

I will now need to say my goodbyes. This post has taken me quite number of days, of uploading and editing. One thing I have learnt from this ... I am going to have a clear starting point for next year's Wipocalypse. So expect that sometime soon, and the update of the tab. You can see a few new SAL ones have sprung up already. I am starting them in 2014, as well as getting a new finishes tab then too (the other one is getting rather long). 

Till soon, when I might update you on craft fairs and such like (something I have been promising for some time now),
