2012 In Quilty Review

I made a couple of mosaics, like everyone else, right, of my finished quilts for 2012.  I just realized that I missed 2!  Here is the mosaic I made of my finished projects.


I have to say I am pretty pleased with this.  The third photo in shows just one quilt but I actually made 3 of these, one for each of my kids.  The two tumblers in the red and grays were for Yolanda's nepehews.  Yolanda passed away and I was so happy to have been part of helping her get some of her quilts finished.

Here are two of the quilts I missed putting in the mosaic, both went to Margaret's Hope Chest


Quilts for MHC

The next mosaic is of a lot of the blocks, tops and fun I had in 2012


I did several swaps and block exchanges.  

I ran 2 quilt-a-longs

I watched as my eldest DD bought her first house

I got to hang out with 2 of my favorite (famous) quilters that I proudly call my friends

I was able to meet a few blog friends in person

I went to NC and hung out with my DD2

I had surgery, recovered and did a LOT of Zumba

I realized my dad needs my help so began working on that.  
I feel like I am getting things under control with him and my sisters.

I played a lot with my 2 best friends

I hung out with the love of my life

I got a project published on the Moda Bake Shop

I survived the death of my beloved cat, Jack 
This was the most difficult thing of the whole year.
I miss him every single day!


All in all it was a good year.  
I am already planning my goals for 2013.

I'll be back with those soon.

In the mean time, I wish you all a happy, healthy and joyous New Year!
