Final WIPocalypse update of 2013

The apocalypse didn't happen on December 21, 2012, after all, so we still have time to finish all of our Works in Progress (WIPs).  I started 2013 with 49 WIPs and added 31 new starts in the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge by starting a new project every day in January.  Then I started 12 more during the year.  I had 29 finishes this year.  You can see them all on my Finishes 2013 page, but here are some of my framed finishes:

 
 
 

Here is one more that I finished this year and just got it framed in this wooden box that I found at a thrift store.  It fits perfectly!  This is The Bear and the Bees by The Prairie Schooler.
 

I also made progress on some big designs this year.  

Boo! Club by Lizzie*Kate started in January with just one part finished:
Now 7 out of 12 parts are finished: 

I finished one full shelf of "99" by Ink Circles, only 8 more to go!

Universal Unity looked like this back in January:
and looks like this now:

I didn't finish Quoth the Raven in time to get it framed for Christmas, but it can be a January present instead!
Quoth the Raven update #7
I also just posted my choices for the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2014.  I'll start a new one every day in January.  Then I'll have an even 100 on my WIPocalypse list. I wonder how many I'll finish in 2014!

I also posted a page for my Turtle Trot SAL choices for 2014.  I will try to make progress on these WIPs during the year and post updates on the 10th of each month.  You can sign up HERE.

Happy Stitching, everyone!

What a great post Debbie. The framed pieces all turned out fantastic. The Bear and Bees is absolutely gorgeous in that box lid and fits perfectly. Looking forward to next years SAL's.
