Wipocalypse Wrap Up

 Here are my Orts for the year. 
I will empty my jar out so I can begin again for 2013.
 I worked on In the Garden the week before Christmas.  Made good progress and should finish this one up in 2013.
And here is the scarf I am knitting for my son.  Still not done.  Good thing Indiana winters last forever.

I did update my WIPocalypse 2012 page with before and after pictures for all of my projects.

I only read 21 books in 2012.  Usually I do 100.  But this year I was so busy with other projects I just did not have the reading time.  I guess in the past I used reading as an escape from my problems.  I guess my problems were diminished in 2012.

I have picked 3 more designs to start in 2013.  Working on getting them kitted up.  I will be participating again in TUSAL and WIPocalypse.  All in all 2012 was a good stitching year.  I finished 5 projects and made good progress on my other projects.

For 2013 I have also signed up to participate in an 8 week training program for beginner 5K runners and a 5 month walk a long with a goal of 250 miles starting 1/1/13 and ending 6/1/13.  So far 7 of us are doing the walk a long.  Will be challenging as I do most of my walking outdoors and this time of the year it is too cold and icy/snowing to walk outside.  I will have to find indoor treadmill time.

In 2013 I also will continue with my home remodeling project.  More cleaning and painting and maybe new windows.

And my big trip comes up in July - Hiking the Grand Canyon.

But first is my daughter's wedding on 1/12/13.  I think everything is ready for that.

So alot to look forward to in 2013.
