A Little Late To The Party

I feel like I am a little late to the posting party.  
Everyone has talked about what they did in 2013 and goals for 2014. 
 I have not pulled together my goals for 2014. 
 I want a little bit more time to think about that. 
I did manage to make a mosaic of most of the projects I finished in 2013. 
 It looks like 17 quilts/projects but I actually made three of those Halloween tumbler quilts..  
So my grand total of handmade items was 21 for the year.
 I also finished the binding on a Christmas quilt that I had started last year and 
gifted that for Christmas but I don't have any photos of that!



Three charity quilts, 3 baby quilts, 2 wedding quilts, one comfort quilt, 2 quilts for the Moda Bake Shop 
and one quilt that was published in a magazine. 
 I would say that it was a pretty good year as far as crafting went.  
I have some exciting things planned for 2014, so I hope you come back and visit in the new year.
 I hope you find some inspiration when you do!

I already have a few quilts in the hopper too. 
 A wedding quilt that I need this month, two baby quilts and at least one graduation quilt. 
 I'm probably forgetting some but that's what I have in my personal que. 
 I have a few more that I have started on but can't share at the moment.

I hope you all got to do something you enjoy on January 1st.
  I was watching the MSU Spartans WIN THE 100TH ROSE BOWL!!! 
 I am one proud Spartan over here. 
 Here's to a healthy and happy 2014!

Hi, I've been following your blog for a few months. You've finished a lot this year. Do you label your quilts? My computer skills are dismal and I really struggle with the printed labels. I like the look of the printed ones though, easier to read. At least if they don't fade right off the fabric.

You had a great year and don't worry about not having your 2014 plans firmed up yet. I just wrote my post today but I've been thinking about it for the past 6 weeks or so.

good to see all you achieved in 2013, re 2014 I am still trying to get motivated, must overcome my dislike of starting anything new, should have made it a resolution for this year but too late now

Little Seamstress, I tried to reply to your email but you are a no reply = ( I do label my quilts. I use various methods. If I have the time and the quilt warrants, I will embroider a label. Sometimes I write directly on the back of the quilt. I also have twill tape and had a rubber stamp made that says "Mama Spark's Quilts" and I stamp on the twill tape and put that on the back diagonally and sew it inside the binding. I think I have pics of most of these things in various posts.
