2017 Wrap Up . . . Bring on 2018!!!!

This post truly is one of my favorite posts to write each year!!!    It is absolutely fantastic to be able to  step back and look at everything that the past year has brought :)  And then to sit and contemplate my plans for the next year, well that just gets me all the more excited!!!  So as I close up 2017, here is a quick look of what has been happening at Happy Quilting over the past year. 

40 Quilts 
 (including quite a few secret ones that I can't show yet :)

4 Mini's & Projects

 Countless Blocks including:
 Aurifil, Bee, Patchwork, Sew Sampler, & Skillbuilder 

And I would be remiss this year if I didn't add in 
a Whole lot of Teaching!!! 
 From the Caribbean, to Las Vegas, to Illinois, to all over Utah, and then back Home again at the Quilt House :) 

And there's  Happy Quilting 2017, all rounded up in 4 little pictures :)  Wow, this year sure has been packed with a whole lot of quilting fun!!!   And it is just so amazing to see it all together in one neat little summary ;)   You can see more details about all of the quilts in my Quilt Archive Tab at the top of the page including links to the quilts with tutorials and of course, the annual Quilt Along ;)

What an amazing journey this continues to be!!!!  I can not even begin to say how grateful I am for this little space in the quilting world.  This is such an incredible industry to be a part of and the reason for that is each of you :)  Quilters are just the best people out there!!!!    I can't tell you how much your comments, emails, and pictures mean and how they just make me smile, especially on some of those slightly more crazy days :)    It is such a blessing to be able to share my love of quilting with you all and I truly can't thank you enough for coming back each day and being a part of Happy Quilting!!! 

And now, It's time to look forward to 2018!!!

Wow, that is just crazy.  2018!!!  Can you believe it.  Time certainly flies when you are having fun ;)  I started Happy Quilting in the summer of 2010 so it is now 7 1/2 years old.  Amazing!!!

So what does 2018 hold in store . . . Lot's more Happy Quilting :)   I have lot's of ideas and am so very excited to see what comes of them. 

Each year, I hang a little print off in my sewing room that serves as a daily reminder of what I want to accomplish creatively in the year and to keep me balanced as well ;)  Some of these are repeats from previous years and some are new, but all are important for me on this amazing journey. 

1 -  Share The Individual Journeys
2 -  Watch Where Time Is Spent
3 -  Measure Your Own Success
4 -  Mommy Before Quilter, Always

And again, these probably only make sense to me but there are so many thoughts tied up in each of those little statements.   They will  be wonderful reminders to me each and every day and I look forward to them  guiding me in my 2018 Creative Journey!!

And One Last Thought Before I Wrap This Up . . . and really, there are not enough words to express this, but . . . Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!! Truly, each and every one of you are what make Happy Quilting a truly Happy place ;)  I can't imagine doing this without all of the wonderful friends that I have made.  Thank you so very much for all your love and support!!!!

And I guess that means it is time to say goodbye to  2017 and here's looking at you 2018!!!!!  May it be filled with  Happy Quilting!!!!!!
Pin It!
