Final WIPocalypse of the year

Time for the final WIPapoclypse of the year:

Question of the Month

Recap your accomplishments for the year! (Your finishes, your final before/after photos, etc).

I have my 2015 Finishes tab up to date so go there for the full list of things I did, it’s not a huge list this year, as Cindy took up a good portion of my time.
As years go this was a bit of a different one, I lost my job, got a new job, and the resulting crossover definitely took away from stitching time. My nephew also stayed for 3 months this year instead of his usual two weeks, another drain on stitching time as we had periodic game nights. So while I had less actual stitching time, the reasons for it were awesome.
Goals for the coming year are as usual few, I’m not really a goal type person, I will continue on the movie project, and WILL finish Cindy this year, which means on new start on a BAP, Fractal is technically next in line, but Pinky’s Mulan is calling my name, I also want to finish Magical’s ornaments, which do need to be updated, here is the complete April and half done May.
   I will have to make baby samplers this year as I have two pregnant nieces, just have to decide on patterns, but as the last one was nearly a year late, I’m not going to worry about when they get started.
As for SALs, I will continue with WIPapcolypse as it’s fun and not to structured which is good for my haphazard blogging style. The TW SAL will continue, always and forever. I will try to do something small of hers as well this year, maybe the 12 days of Christmas. Unfortunately my favourite Stitch from Stash is no longer going, I actually remembered to read other blogs when doing it, so my friends will just have to remind me to do so without this incentive.

And finally, here is a before and after shot of Cindy, from the beginning of the year, to the end,.

As for what I watched.

Critical Role  - This pretty much took over my life in the summer, Still is for that matter, The good thing is it's great to stitch to

The Mockingjay Part 2 - This was a really well done series, and now that it’s done I have a yen to reread the books

The Polar Express - Another must on the Christmas watching list

Scrooge - Alastair Sim version, best of the lot, always to be watched Christmas Eve

Dance With Me - A decent romantic dance movie, I forgot I owned this, but once I put it in I remembered seeing it before, nothing about it stands out from the crowd, but it’s an enjoyable way to waste a couple hours.

Detonator 2: Nightwatch -  A really good espionage./ thriller starring Peirce Brosnan, based on an Alastair McLean novel, there are a lot of his movies out there and they are all good solid action movies. This is a sequal. I know I saw the first years ago, but I also liked the second one better.

Disturbing Behaviour - A low budget horror from 1998 starring the popular actors from the CW network as they like to do. This time it’s Katie Holmes.  Basically a new teen comes to town (James Marsden) and discovers the popular jock kids are all mind controlled Stepford types,  it’s typical and not all that great. This one goes into the Do Not Keep pile.


  1. wildly clapping hands for Cindy! Oh and add a huge WOW to that as well :D

    Now I'm thinking I need to watch Disturbing Behavior just because it wasn't good enough to go back on the shelf! hahahaha!

    1. It's not a horrible movie, just one I can't see myself deliberately watching again

  2. For all the work you put in Cindy (which looks amazing, btw!) you made some decent finishes - especially Music was really really awesome! I'm wishing you a happy new year, with lots of stitching time and jst the right amount of non-stitching distractions ^_^

    1. Happy New Year to you as well, can't wait to see what we all manage to stitch up this year.
