2017 Finishes

I doubt this year I will get anywhere close to the 52 projects I finished last year! I'm aiming for about 30 (12 Challenge WIPs, 12 Smalls SAL and up to 6 new starts) so let's see how I do!

Well, I finished 11/12 Challenge pieces, 12/12 Smalls SAL pieces and 3/3 New Starts, giving 26 finishes during 2017. Me happy!
