I started school with my two youngest children.
I doubled my goat herd.
I've been married for 11 years now!
We did some major remodeling in our house.
My oldest daughter turned ten and now she's having her first pangs of "tweendom."
And, I've totally fallen in love with quilting.
I thought I liked quilting before, but now I realize that I LOVE it. I have so many plans for 2011, I'm almost bursting with them! So, I thought I would take a few minutes and review what I did this last year in quilting and some of the things that I plan to do in the upcoming year.
Here is my list of goals from 2010...
- 100 net yards out of my stash - came close...I busted over 85 yards
- Bust 300 yards of Stash - see above
- Make a black and white quilt - didn't accomplish - moved to 2011
- Quilt for Olivia - I designed a quilt for her, but we haven't started it
- Quilt for Sophia - Finished
- Quilt for Nancy - I think I will give her the Layer Cake Quilt Along quilt when it's finished
- Make Shakespeare in the Park quilt - didn't do this...it will be moved to 2011
- Make a quilt that is "out of my comfort zone" (Layer Cake Quilt Along)
- Make at least 36 Charity Quilts (24 finished) - this year, I'll modify my goal to 30 quilts
- Finish ALL UFOs - that one was kind of unrealistic, but when I counted up my UFOs for Judy's challenge, I found that I only have around 10 UFOs
- Only have fabric I LOVE - Accomplished for the most part
- Start a beginners quilt guild/club - Accomplished - first meeting is Jan 5th
- Teach a beginning quilters class - Accomplished
- Furnish my sewing room - Accomplished for the most part...still in the works
- Keep my sewing room organized - dismal failure, lol...keeping things organized is definitely something I struggle with
- Experiment with miniature quilting
- Perfect my hand quilting utilizing The Thimble Lady's Method
- Black & White quilt
- Shakespeare in the Park quilt - I may make my SITP a B/W quilt and kill two birds with one stone, lol
- Judy's UFO challenge to finish my UFOs and FINISH what I START
- Judy's Monochromatic quilt challenge
- Thirty donation quilts
- Work on different types of quilts...paper piecing, embroidery, appliqué
