I stayed up way too late last night so I was surprised when I woke up this morning full of energy and excitement about 2012.
2011 was a tough year for a lot of people I love and at times a tough year for me, there was a lot of change and turmoil going on and I am ready for it to be over and done with. I am embracing the New Year and it's going to be a good one!!
Here is a little look back on the year. It could be called the year of the mug rug for me I made so many they could have their own mosaic! I finished six quilts and really feel like I am finding my voice. The upper left corner is Nate and Kristi's wedding quilt, my first queen size, I'll have a post with more photos soon.
For 2012 creatively I have a few quilts planed over the next few months that I am so excited about. I'm planning on participating in Rachel's Scrap Attack Quilt Along which I think is getting started this week, it's going to be scraptastic! I will also be doing a few things with Madame Samm because I just can't resist her enthusiasm and kindness. The Sewing Summit is a must for 2012! I am also taking a fabric design class from Lizzy House in the Spring YAY! I am trying to figure out what the next step will be for me on this quilting journey.
I am grateful for my family. My children, 7 and almost 11, are changing right before my eyes and I don't want to miss this time when they still snuggle, give me spontaneous hugs, and call me Mama instead of Mommm or MOther. My husband and I have declared this the "Year of Organization", ok I did and my husband is on board. We are starting this month with his office which is also our home office and organizing a different part of our house/life every month! It's going to be a full year I can tell already but it's going to be a good one!
Happy New Year and thank you for taking time to visit I appreciate this space and my friends out in blog land so much!
