2014 was the year of the Quilt for me :) Oh my goodness, I had a lot of fun making quilts this year!! I love Quilting!! I love the fabrics, I love the designing, I love the cutting, piecing, and quilting!!! I love it all!!! And on a side note, I have to say, I was a little blown away when I put this little mosaic together. You don't realize just how much you have creating until you stop and put it all together ;) If I can get the binding put on my Super Scrappy Irish Chain today that is one more finish to add to 2014 :) And see that little question mark at the bottom, that represents some secret finishes that I still can't share. Yup, the year of the Quilt ;)
And I also had some quilty/sewing project finishes this year ;) I can't tell you how excited I was this Christmas to have our new matching family stockings. They have been on the "to do" list for years and years so they were a particular happy finish for me this year ;)
And you can't forget bee blocks!! I absolutely love the 2 bees I am in. I love the opportunity to try new blocks, stretch my skills, and most of all, make wonderful friends with the ladies in the groups.
And those 3 little mosaics pretty much are a quick Round Up of my Happy Quilting 2014 :) I wish my sewing machine had one of those internal timers that said how many hours I was stitching this year, that would be cool to know. I guess I can safely say, A Lot :) You can see more details about all of the quilts in my Quilt Archive Tab at the top of the page including links to any tutorials ;)
And now, It's time to look forward to 2015!!!
Last year at this time I printed off 4 goals that hung in my sewing room and served as a constant daily reminder of what I wanted to accomplish creatively in 2014 ;)
This will be my printout out for 2015 :)
1 - Push Your Creative Comfort Zone
2 - Share The Ongoing Process
3 - Pause And See Your Journey
4 - Say Yes While Being Mom
These probably only make sense to me but there is so much thought crammed into each little statement. Seriously, I could write a page on each of these little 4 things and everything that goes into them and what I want to accomplish with them :) These are a great little summary of all those thoughts. I look forward to these 4 little lines guiding me in my 2015 Creative Journey!!
And Before I Wrap This Up . . . I can't ever say it enough. Thank You!!!! Thank You to each of you who make Happy Quilting a part of your day!!! Thank you for your kind comments, pictures, sweet emails and constant words of encouragement. They mean the world to me!! I can not being to explain how it makes me grin from ear to ear to see how Happy Quilting continues to grow and touch people's creative lives. Thank You!!!
So here's to 2015, May it bring us all lots and lots of Happy Quilting!!!!!!
