My Year in Review

It’s great to have a blog to be able to look back on how I spent the past year. Here are my highlights from 2010. (note: I’m choosing to ignore the low points!) I finished a couple quilts.


completed Mod Girls quilt


completed Darla quilt

I started a couple more quilts.

I joined my first quilting bee. I went on my first quilting retreat. Had the time of my life! I shared a few tutorials. I made lots of great new friendships this year that I cherish, so I hope we continue to stay connected. We did a little travel to Las Vegas and New York City.

(Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas!)

(Radio City Music Hall)

I went to a few rock concerts. I experimented with lots and lots of new bag designs. I shared a series of Best Practices. We enjoyed our gardens. We enjoyed the farmers market. I spent some time at my parents’ cottage. I organized a Christmas in July ornament exchange. I am happy my etsy shop was more active. (By the way, did you know I started advertising on a couple blogs? I looking for a couple more to try.) I made lots of custom orders, which are always fun to do. They are challenging and so fulfilling! (still have a couple more to finish) I entered my first craft show. I squeezed in a little hiking and a little skiing.

I lost a total of 22 pounds! I quit my corporate job! Scary and freeing in the same breath! I went back to school! So far, I’ve taken a design class, a drawing class and a computer graphics class. Looking back at the amazing variety I experienced this past year makes me feel like one lucky girl! I am excited to continue to move forward, so cheers to a Happy New Year!

  • It is amazing how much a person does in a year. I don’t think we realize until you do a recall of the year. This is a good time to wish you a Happy New Year and you have done alot. The weight lose is awsome. I could only wish. Going to school and being able to do what you want to do is great. I know the new year will be a very good one for you. You have alot going for you and your creativity. I look forward to keeping up with you this next year. This year has been amazing for me. It was my first year really keeping up with all the blogs and I have come across alot of wonderful people. I’m learning the computer which I said I would never do.
