WIPocalypse Re-Set for 2014

January Theme: Introduce Yourself!

I'm JoAnna, and I live in southeastern Pennsylvania.  I've been stitching since I was a kid, and I am a chronic start-aholic.  I am constantly starting projects and rarely finishing them.  This is why I LOVE the WIPocalypse!  I participated in both the 2012 and 2013 WIPocalypse challenges, however, my participation in 2013 tapered off after the summer when school and life got in the way.  This year, I am re-newing my commitment to participate, yay!

Right now, I have four major projects in the works.  I do not expect to finish all four this year, but I expect to finish two and get the other two much closer to completion.  The first is a project for a dear friend of mine who, due to illness, can only stitch sporadically and asked for some help in finishing this project up.  I expect to finish this project THIS month...I hope?  I will post a picture of it when it is done.

The second is L&L's Celtic Summer.  I am almost done with this piece, and hope to finish it sometime this Spring or early summer.  Here is a picture of where I'm at right now:




The third and fourth are both being continued from the 2013 WIPocalypse.  They are Celtic Spring and Sweet Dreams, both by L&L.  Here are current pix of my progress:
That's it for now.  Looking forward to a year of stitching in 2014!  -JoAnna
