2016 Smalls SAL Final Post

This year I joined a fun SAL and it's time for the final check in for the Smalls SAL. The point was to pick a pattern to work on each month. It could be anything you considered small. The goal was to work on your choice each month and at the end of the year have 12 completed projects. I had this leaflet in my stash for I have no idea how long...
I thought this would be the perfect plan and just hoped I would stick to it. I was doing the DUCJC (Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge) so I started the Jan one in Jan but didn't get to finish it till Feb. I finished all the other ones during the month they were for. So last but not least here is Dec Whimsy just finished up a few minutes ago...
(31) December 30th
A Year of Whimsy by Dimensions (Out of Print)
Stitched on Perforated Paper
Used Suggested DMC
Started whole project for DUCJC Jan 1st, 2016.
Took 6 Days.
 
I have a piece of cork board beside my calendar right by my computer. I use a thumbtack and they can hang where I will see them everyday. I love them!!! Here is the whole set now...
The whole project ended up taking me 57 days to complete. I'm so happy I stuck with them and got them all finished up!! If you follow the link at the top of this post or on my sidebar you can sign up to join in next year. It was a great push for me to stick with these. Plus they are finished finishes even!! I will be announcing soon my patterns for next year but I'll tell ya I have another monthly series picked out.
