Crikey. I’ll never keep these organized at this rate. I had this great idea that I would have one blog post per block like I’ve done with the Splendid Sampler but I didn’t keep them straight in what order I did them. To add to that, I’m not sewing them in numerical order, alphabetical order, or row order so it’s a challenge to figure out what ones I’ve posted and what ones I’ve finished but haven’t posted.
And those aren’t even all of the ones I’ve finished. I have more that I’ve taken photos of but haven’t uploaded them to WordPress yet. My organization skills are lacking these past couple of weeks apparently!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed some time with family and/or friends. I ended up giving 2 Christmas stockings as gifts and then gave everyone (I think it was 12 people) a pillow case that I had made. I surprised everyone (except my husband who was in on the deal) with 3 quilts for the youngest in the group. I did give out some non-sewing presents but that’s not as exciting!
I also received some fantastic quilting related presents as well – fabric, fabric, and more fabric. And thread, thread and more thread. Those are 2 things I can always use! I’m pretty sure I have enough to keep me busy – seriously – through the middle of summer.
I don’t always make a resolution for the new year and I’m not always apt to keep it when I do. But on my list is to use my dslr camera more. I get into a habit of picking up my cell phone because it’s quick and convenient but it seems silly to have a real camera and not use it at least on occasion. I was playing with it earlier this week and caught a shot of rain bands on the horizon.
