Oops-Lah said...

Celtic Thistle said...

Congrats on the progress. You have a really daunting list there still!

The crochet Yoda sounds interesting :)

JoJo said...

Your window came out soooooo great! Keep on with the WIPs! You are kicking butt!

pennydog said...

Oooh do enamelling next!

Shirley Cryan said...

Oh my you are doing brilliant, I get tired just looking at you list lol

SuperMomNoCape said...

You have done so well so far this year... you are making great progress on your list. Just reading through it has me thinking I'd be overwhelmed, so I'll bet it feels great to have all those other ones checked off.

And that stained glass window is so pretty.

If you can keep up the pace and finish 5 or 6 projects a month you'll be done your original WIPS by the end of the year. If you also completed one of your "added" projects, you'd be done those as well. So far you've been staying on track quite well, so keep it up and you'll be celebrating come December, lol!

Bloody Hell, you outed yourself big time with that list of shame, i'm not admitting to anywhere near that amount! Good Luck, you'll have to stop sleeping and working to get through those, and eating may have to take a back seat! ;O)
