I also enjoy looking back at the year and boy has this been a year!!!!!
During 2010, we enjoyed two, 10 day trips to Kunming China, 7 wonderful weeks in Italy, 2 trips to Louisiana for my husband’s field work , the marriage of our son, Brian to a wonderful woman, Amber, and our daughter, Jenny, moving to Atlanta to work on a Master’s degree…….WHEW!!!!!
My craft time has been limited this year, but it was fun to look back and realize that I did accomplish a few things.
….”Waves ala Particles”…..a contrast challenge
…..”Terra Cotta Flowers”…. using a rust dyed fabric
…..”As Blue Goes By” ……a blue challenge quilt
…..”Blew Two”……..the second blue challenge quilt.
…..”Hot Espresso, Cool Gelato” ……the Hot/Cold challenge
…..”Christmas Lap Quilt”…..finally finished after 15 years
…..”Read to Rover”…..the last quilt made for the year
…..thank goodness for challenges or I might not have finished anything!!!!
I worked to help prepare 5 quilts that will be hung at the local Senior Center, and worked on two other charity quilts.
I also made 5 covered books which were given as gifts in Italy, and made and mailed my first quilted postcard.
I attended workshops taught by Margaret Hunt and learned to use Water Soluble Pastels. I put this technique into use in two mini, mini quilts.
I only taught two quilting workshops, but truly enjoyed the interactions with the ladies in my classes.
OK…..so maybe I did get quite a bit of quilting time!!!!
What are my plans for 2011……those are for another day…..today is just one for reflection……
SO, BRING ON THE NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
