WIPs – Works in Progress

CLOSED - Pick My WIP - January 2017 Edition

Help. I can’t decide what to focus on in January. Vote on what should be my main stitch for January. All of these are projects on my Year of WIPs list. This won’t be my exclusive stitch for January, but it will be my main piece.

UPDATED: Poll is now closed! Henry it is!

What should be my focus piece for January?
