End of 2006 stitching report

It's been a great stitching year for me. I achieved a lot of my goals (you can see them here) and had a lot of fun. Of course, I didn't do everything I wanted to, and a lot of the stuff I did do wasn't on my original list. I started too many things, didn't finish enough, and probably did a couple too many exchanges! But I enjoyed myself. Here's the final overview:
