2007 Quilty Ponderings

I binged and purged this year. On the fabric diet. Off the fabric diet. On. Off.

I didn’t sew as much as I would have liked to, but I did have a good time this year and appliqued a ton!

Finished Quilts and Flimsies:

~ The giterdun/gotitdun! If I never make another quilt, I’m happy with that one.
~ Bundling Board
~ Alex’s 2006 retreat project
~ Brown/taupe shop sample for Ginger
~ Purple shop sample for Ginger
~ Duck quilt shop sample for Ginger
~ Holly Jolly tablerunner
~ Gingerbreadmen table runner
~ Spooky Nights
~ Two quilts which were just mailed out today

WIPS started:

~ 2007 retreat project, Holiday Lights
~ Blue/red Quilts in a Bag
~ Hometown Christmas
~ Peach Cobbler

Applique projects started: (These were worked on regularly.)

~ Pumpkins
~ All Things Christmas
~ Strawberry Hill
~ Piece & Plenty

I would love to see all of these finished, quilted and bound in 2008, but I’m not going to put undue pressure on myself to do that. My number one, highest priority resolution in 2008 is to enjoy every single quilting moment! Yes, I’ll use the stash. But I’m going to enjoy every last stitch I take!

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Remember, whatever you do on New Year’s Day, you do for the rest of the year! So don’t forget to take a few stitches!

Gratitudes:

~ My career that lets me afford to quilt
~ Friends made, friendships renewed, and old friends
~ A healthy and happy family
~ A healthy and happy me
~ The sweetness in my life named Daisy

Happy New Year Vicky! I sincerely hope that 2008 brings only good things to you. I like your lists ..... I should do some of those - it would be interesting to see how much I accomplished during 2007 - I think I'll be quite surprised.

Hugs,
Gail

Happy New Year to you and Daisy!
You got a ton accomplished last year. Now that you've gotten so good at it, I can't wait to see what you burn thru this New Year.
Now you need to put RiM on your "wonderful things I need to do for myself" list.
Happy New Year & lotsa ((hugs)) for you'n Daisy.
Love - Sally

Happy New Year to you, Vicky! I was trying to remember what I did on New Year's Day, and I don't think it was sewing! So no sewing for the rest of the year?!? I don't think so!! LOL!!
I think you accomplished a great deal in 2007, and you've got a wonderful headstart on projects for 2008, too! I am impressed, woman! I am so going to make that gingerbread men runner, too - I bought the book, I loved it so much! You are an inspiration to me, Vicky!!
