January WIPocalypse

Yesterday was a full moon so it was time for the first WIPocalypse post of 2016. I really enjoyed participating last year so I'm glad it's going on again.

Question of the Month

Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!

For those new to my blog I want to say Welcome and Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy your visit. I'm Katie. I'm a stay at home mother. I have a 17 year old son named Jeremiah. He has cerebral palsy which means he can't walk. We also made the decision to home school since the local school system just wasn't working for him. We've been doing that since he was in the 3rd grade and I have never regretted it for a second. I'm married for 15 years this year. We bought a house with my mother. I love cross stitching and traveling. That's what I tend to blog about. I write this blog like I'm a talking to a long time stitching friend. At the end of each year I print out my blog with a company that turns it into my own book to forever cherish. I just love looking back over my past books and seeing what I did and what I've worked on. Wow how tastes change and yet some things stay no matter what. I've been at this blog since 2007!

Let's see now onto my goals and my projects. This year I joined in the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge. I've been starting a new project every day. I love it! I'm also glad it will be over soon so I can get back to all of them and make more progress. Some of them are very close to finished. My main goal is to finish my 31 new starts. I also have a HAED called Hold on to Hope that I would LOVE to finish this year. At the top of my blog is my Goals and SALs page. It lists all my current WIPs that are in my tote (and now tub) waiting to be stitched. I'm definitely not a one at a time stitcher. I'm a stitch whatever screams loudest stitcher. If I want to start something I do. No stress. This is a hobby and I want to be happy.

Well that's it for my first check in. I'm sure the rest of the year will be a little more interesting. Right now just scroll through and see what I've been starting so far this year. I've also had 4 finishes already. Have a great month. See ya next check in Feb 22nd!
