It is the end of the year and I survived. This hasn’t been my toughest year, but it is in the running. This blog started in March, so it isn’t even a full year to review. Which is OK because my life has been fractured enough that I haven’t been able to work on very many projects. Let’s see what I was able to complete…
I started this blog!
I moved into my cute little apartment and, eventually, unpacked.
Participated in a good many “Monday Run-Day’s” hosted by Gallagher Fitness. Stopped dying my hair.
Finished 24 pieced quilt blocks for 3 different quilts
Completed 3 embroidered quilt blocks
Altered a wedding gown for a beautiful bride
Finished knitting two baby blankets
Made a wedding veil for another gorgeous bride
Created my project workbook to keep track of things…(lol)
Pieced and tied a 120″ x 120″ t-shirt quilt…still need to quilt it. It is too big for my quilting frame.
Completed 4 mending projects. Oh so many more in the pile yet to finish!
Took a four day road trip.
Finished a birthday skirt for my Daughter-in-law
Participated in three 1k races with my grandsons, my sister and her grandbabies. Even my son joined us for the last one! I also ran two 5k races and actually enjoyed them (surprise, surprise!)
Made a conscience choice to participate in Small Business Saturday. Drove to Dallas to get what I needed (and more) from Grandma’s Attic Sewing Emporium.
Completed five linen birthday hankies for my knitting group friends. I only have photo evidence of these two.
Completed my Poison Carmel Apple beaded scarf. It was made with the wonderful yarn that my friend DSH made and gave to me. Margie loves all things green. I loved gifting it to her.
All those things were things that were FINISHED this year. Writing up this post has made me feel much better about getting stuff done this year. I was feeling like not a lot had been accomplished.
On deck for this next year:
- finish the projects that I started this year, but have yet to finish.
- actually quilting the many quilt tops that have been languishing for many a year
- some historical sewing
- crushing my mending pile
- making a pattern for the wool cape
Many more projects will insert themselves, I am sure. 😀 I am looking forward to the adventure.
Wishing all of you and yours a wonderful New Year!
