My son is now in California, but will be back for a few days next week. My daughter and her boyfriend have headed out to visit his parents and then drive home. Hubby and I have the house to ourselves for a few days.
I took advantage of that and spent a good hour or more working on Baker Beach on Friday. I am so close to being halfway done with this last page. There are only about 2000 stitches left. Oh no, that sounds like so much.
It is bitterly cold here today, 14 degrees right now with wind, so I will spend as much time as possible indoors working on Baker Beach. I have to go out to get milk, which is annoying as I was in our local grocery store twice yesterday. Hubby and I also have to make some Christmas returns. Sigh....
I had really hoped that Baker Beach would be finished this year, but I know for sure that I will finish it in 2018. I am too close to the end not too finish it soon.I think this might be a good time to look over my finishes of 2017. This was a cowl for my daughter that I finished in February. She was wearing it when she was here for Christmas which made me smile.
I March I finished my Feather and Fan shawl.
I April I finished stitching one of my Prairie Schooler Santas although the final assembly didn't happen until a couple of days before Christmas.
There were no finishes in May, June or July. I spent those months working on the second Prairie Schooler Santa, Baker Beach and the Summer of Love Challenge.
The last I finished in August.
I also finished this crocheted Christmas tree for my son.
September and October found me very busy with my school and university work so there were no finishes. In November I finished my second Prairie Schooler Santa.
I also finished binding this quilt for my son that I called Matthew's Maze.
As I said before, those Prairie Schooler Santas got their final finish right before Christmas. They were my December finishes.
I am pretty happy with my accomplishments. I always wish for more finishes, but I really can't complain.
I am joining Kathy for the last Slow Sunday Stitching of 2017. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
