year in review…
before writing this post, with all my current works in progress in mind, i was under the impression i didn’t get many projects accomplished this year. however, looking back, i’m actually pretty impressed with myself. here is a quick reel…
i started this new blog in the middle of may. also in may i completed my first quilt ever for my mom as a mother’s day gift.
in may i applied to be a staffer for an online scrapbooking magazine. unfortunately i was not one of the 20 chosen, but it was the first time i had ever put my art out there like that.
in may i wrote my first tutorial
and my final project in may was a piece of wall art that i made as a donation for a silent auction
i finally learned and mastered paper piecing
i also constructed a handmade journal
i participated in a virtual sewing bee on flickr. here are the blocks i made
here are the blocks i received
i also made a cute little scrapbook page
i made a greek cross quilt for baby sam
i made my first mug rug for a friend’s birthday present in her favorite colors
i participated in the christmas in july blog hop, and made these cute quilted trees for a wall hanging
i got a gelli plate and experimented with printing
i made my first pillow case
i participated in a mug rug swap. here is the one i made, according to my partner’s preferences
and here is the one my partner made for me
i finished painting two pieces of pottery
i made an infinity scarf for myself, and one for brian’s mom as a birthday gift
i finished one month of my woodland cross stitch sampler
danielle and i exchanged mug rugs for the #urhere mug rug swap. i made her this

i also made some cute cross stitch kitties for my grandma, for her birthday
the only project i completed in november was a stool/desk set for my nephew grayson
i made two pillows
and finished a quilt for my brother
whew! time flies when you’re having fun right? i didn’t realize how much crafting i’ve done in just half a year actually (from may until now).
i’ve also read these 8 books since starting my goal in august, of reading 30 new books before i turn 30 in 2014!
i also STARTED, yet didn’t finish a bunch of projects, but i will save those for my next post, which will be goals for 2014 🙂
thanks so much for following along with my progress and cheering me on this year! your love and support are great motivators!
