College 85, or, 3,658 stitches left

I didn't finish by Christmas and I didn't finish by the end of the year. But I've stopped stressing out avout it and am going to finish, wash it, get it framed, and still give it as a gift to my parents without the added stress.

So let's see where I was with this project at the beginning of the year, last time, and now.

Start of 2015:


last time:


And now, after another 10 hours of stitching, roughly:





Almost there!

Basically, I didn't make any of my goals for the year. And I don't care! 2015 was an absolutely CRAZY year! I got to meet Michael Fassbender (my favorite!) and Kate Winslet and my butt made it into the Steve Jobs movie, after which I got to work some more gigs until I got a corporate job I actually really like. Then H³ started grad school and we got a dog! All in all, a wonderful year, despite the lack of stitching finish.

With that I leave this year off with a picture of our little beastie, being a super snuggler.




Happy New Year! and Happy Stitching in 2016!

Sounds like a pretty fantastic year all round!
And you are so close, I suspect that the majority of my projects don't have that many stitches done on them yet!

I think you achieved a lot of things in 2015, not only on the stitchy side of life and it was surely an adventure =) I am looking forward to see college finished in 2016 =)

You've made amazing progress and you'll definitely have a finish in 2016 now.
Of course there will be the Oscars to look forward to as well, Best Supporting Butt Award!

You've made awesome progress. 2015 was one of those years that nothing went as planned but it ended up alright in the end.
