It's time for the annual 2013 project review. Looking at these finishes, I'll admit to feeling a little disappointed that I didn't complete more, especially the UFOs that remain on my "On the Horizon" list (a tab at the top).
By my calculations, breast cancer and peripheral vascular disease stole about ten weeks from my life. So, I'll blame my reduced productivity on those two physical challenges, and pray that 2014 is a much healthier year.
Here's a collage of the 11 quilts I completed. My favorite is Bloom - the middle bottom photo. I'm pretty happy with the hexagon quilts too. I'm officially hooked on hexies!
These are some of the other creations that came from my sewing room - pillows, bowl buddies, bags and totes, thread catchers, a table runner, an apron, an engineer cap, and ticker tape canvases. Two skirts and a dress aren't included in the collage.
So, perhaps not too shameful after all, considering...
I'm optimistic about 2014 since I already know some really good things lie ahead - the birth of a grandson; teaching beginner quiltmaking, and free motion quilting; giving presentations about modern quilting (if you're local, check my "Schedule" tab above); several articles in print in American Quilter magazine; and (hopefully) house guests, with all of them being first-time visitors.
Health wise, I definitely expect 2014 to be a better year. With God beside me, I'll trust and handle whatever might lie ahead. Praying for all good things for you, and me! Blessings on us, every one.
Happy New Year! Linda
