Unfinished Items from years past

YIKES! I've just gone through my yearly lists of new starts and counted up all the WIPs that were left straggling after the year was over. I'd love for this to be the year I can thin out that bin, as it is full to bursting. I'm sure if I avoided the temptation (hahaha like that will happen) of the fantastic new stitches I see about becoming new starts I could make a bigger dent. After all, I do have the Start/Finish quota at a higher finish level than I do Wips at the end of each year.....Looking back in:

2013: 38 starts - 29 finishes = 9 left overs     
  • Then 3 more of those were completed in 2014; 1 in 2015 & another in 2016. So that brought it down to 4.
  •  38 starts and only 4 left overs.
  2014: I had 33 new Starts. 16 of those became finishes = 17 left overs             (Plus 3 of '13)
  • Grand total 19 finishes that year.
2015: There were 58 New Starts. 46 of them became Finishes leaving me with just 12 left overs         
  • Plus I finished 9 left over from 2014; and 1 from 2013. Grand finishing total of 56! The same good record of completions flowed over into 2016 where I had: 55 New Starts. 44 became finishes; 11 were left over but I also had 5 finishes from the 2015 list; 2 from 2014 and 1 of 2013.
  • Finishes total for 2016 was 52.
These are the Saddened Projects wanting to be completed: Some are so old that I'm not sure which year I even started them. They were uncovered when I went rooting through some of the storage room :( I'm sure there are others, packed away in the basement boxes that will one day be found. But I'm in no hurry to uncover those again until this list has been reduced.
