WIPocalypse check in again! But before that, just a quick note. I had a little time for some blog reading last night before I went to bed and tonight, but for some reason, if you have embedded comments, I can't comment from Google Chrome, I have to go to Internet Explorer, but when it wants me to sign into my account, the page is all in arabic and I have no idea what it's asking me, so sorry, no comments from me!

Ah, we all have to take some time off at least once a year! Just get back to it when you're home :) Why don't you work on some quick small things to get some knocked off and get your motivation back?

Melody said...

Firstly, such a great effort with all your finishes. Secondly I don't feel quite as naughty now as there is someone else with lots of WIP - grin

JoJo said...

I hear ya...I've got so many projects and ideas and I'm making slow progress.

Sandra :) said...

You've finished 30 projects - that's pretty good! It may not be as many as you want, but it's still a pretty good number!

Carrie P. said...

I wish I was seeing that view in person.
you have accomplished a lot this year.

Joy McD said...

Hmm... well, you have gotten a lot done at least!! Way more than me... sigh... Nice view :) How are you coping with Ramadan? xxx

Jane Galley said...

After all you did at the beginning of the year, i think you deserve a break. I am sure when some of the other stresses go, you'll be crafting full steam ahead.

Anita said...

To finish 30+ projects in a year is pretty good. Congratulations Wendy!
