I say this every year, but I'm glad this one is over. Especially after yesterday at work.
Thought I'd try to recap my quilty year. I didn't get as much accomplished as I usually do, but I did some *important* quilts - gifts and helping Judy a bit. A lot of these still need quilting, but my part is done! :) Here's the piddly list:
- Lisa's quilt which still needs a name. Strawberry Fields? Nah ...
- Don's wonky leaf quilt. Guess I ought to give this one a name, too.
- Alex's 2005 retreat quilt
- Alex's 2006 retreat quilt
- Polka Dot quilt
- Judy's Dancing Bears
- Judy's floating nine-patch
- CA poppy string
- Around the Block
Other quilts in progress that were either begun or worked on in 2006:
- Dutch Treat blocks - hit the 100 mark. This may be a lifetime project!
- Jane's crumbs
- Red and white shooting stars
- Another quilt top that is 80% finished - a Judy design
I'm sure there are other things I worked on, but I can't remember now what they are. I know I spent a lot of time cutting strips to have them ready for next year's scrappy quilts. I also have two or three other quilts that are cut and ready to sew up, so that was a weekend spent cutting. I went through a period of a couple of months of not wanting to sew, and I also worked a lot on weekends this year, so I guess that explains why my list isn't longer. But I guess it's quality and not quantity that counts here. :)
One thing that didn't happen in 2006 is much stashbusting. I blame that mostly on the fact that the quilt shop closed and I "tried" to buy it out. I had small binges here and there at other quilt shops through the year, especially at Retreat, but really didn't buy as much as I would have had it not been for the blog ring. See? It worked!
I was going to post a picture of Daisy but Blogger says, "Sorry, we are unable to complete your request." Story of my life!
So, onward to 2007 - with resolve to enjoy this quilty passion to the fullest!
Happy New Year from Daisy and me!
