2018: A Year of Many Finishes

2018 is going to be a big year.  A year of many finishes.  Or at least, many attempted finishes.  I have roughly 40 cross stitch patterns that have been charted and printed out, and I've not even started on most of them.  But this year, I'm going to.  I'm going to start on them, and see how many I can get finished by December 31st, 2018.

Here are the rules:

:bulletyellow: I cannot print off any new patterns unless I have fully run out of other patterns in my box*.
:bulletyellow: I cannot start any new piece until I have completed a piece that is currently in rotation*.
:bulletyellow: There is no set schedule for when I work on pieces.  If it's currently in-progress, I can work on it as the mood strikes me.

2018 is going to be a wild ride.  Let's see how many projects I can finish in a year!

* An exception is made for speed art videos, which will only use postage stamp patterns or smaller.

Group Participation

I encourage anybody with a growing WIP stack or pattern stash to join in on this challenge as well.   I'll put a widget on my deviantART page to keep a running total of all finishes over 2018.  Just send me a note when you've finished something, and I'll add it to the collection.  Let's make 2018 the Year of Many Finishes.  If you're on deviantART, I encourage you to submit your finishes.  Let's see how big we can make the collection by the end of the year.

All of the patterns for the projects I'll be listing will be released upon completion.  Patrons will get them as soon as I start.
