my love for quilting and sewing really took off this year! i learned so many new things, made so many new friends, and completed so many projects!
i made quite a few pillows, mostly for gifts/commission, but did manage to sneak one in especially for me!
i participated in a valentine’s day garland swap, a strawberry swap, and a mini quilt swap
brian and i painted some pottery
i joined a bee and made these blocks so far for the other members
here is the block they are all making for me this month
i also joined a round robin. these are the two blocks i sent off as my “quilt start”
here are the ones i have contributed to so far
i participated in a handmade birthday club and made these goodies
i made these other gifts
here are a few of my commissions
i donated an auction item, and tested a pattern
i experimented with zippers and different types of pouches
revamped my etsy shop (ninabooquilts)
participated in a few quilt alongs. didn’t finish any of them, but working very hard on it!!
finished a few full sized quilts (all gifts of course)
and got REALLY good at making drawstring bags!
i also participated in two blog hops, won a free pattern, a fat eighth bundle of liberty of london fabric, and three quilting books.
all in all, a successful year if i do say so myself!
referring back to my goals for 2014, i only completed one thing off of it…eek! i guess other ideas popped up and became more appealing. hopefully this year i can actually stick to the list and get some works in progress finished. however, i think i will save that agenda for another post…this one has been pretty time consuming
