Happy New Year!

Now that I have watched the New Year's concert from Vienna, I feel like 2011 has actually begun.

The first of the month usually has me looking at the stitching progress I have made during the last month, and setting goals for the new month. Since it is also the end of one year and the beginning of another, statistics for the past year should also be reviewed.

In 2010 I logged 601 hours of stitching time, and completed 55 projects. Due to arthritis in my stitching hand, I didn't get as much stitching done as I would have liked, but I did have some good progress none the less. For the coming year, not only will I be tracking stitching time and projects completed, but also how much is spent on stash and stitching related events. I don't see alot of new charts in my future as I have quite a few kitted up and lots more waiting in the wings. I think most of what I spend will be on assorted threads and fabrics for EGA and ANG projects that are coming up, and on finishing and framing.

Interesting statistics - you are a busy stitcher! I'm curious about the monthly cup o' tea, though. Is that a purchased monthly series, or something you put together on your own? I couldn't find it on the net (but I must admit I didn't try very hard, sorry.) Thanks, and have a blessed and happy new year!

You are so busy!
I love statistics...unfortunately creating them is very time consuming.
