Goodbye 2012 Hello 2013!

Quilts
Happy New Year! 2012 was fun, busy, and full of surprises. I'm looking forward to continuing the momentum in 2013. When I started this post I began to feel a little down about not completing as many quilts last year but then I kicked myself in the ass (at least in my head)! I accomplished a lot in 2012 and I want to be kind to myself in 2013. In 2012 on top of being a Mom and Wife I was on the PMQG board, I helped with our school auction and Art program, I started a new career path in fabric design, I went to Sewing Summit, Quilt Market, and the Northwest Modern Quilt Guild meet up, I was in swaps, blog hops, blogged on two blogs, I was in a book club and a movie club, and I read 19 books! I am a little worn out and I think it shows but I'm happy so that's what I'm keeping in my heart when I look back at 2012.

Oh the swaps!
In 2013 I'll still be working towards my fabric design dreams, volunteering at my children's schools, and joining in my first bee! I am making some adjustments to better manage my time and plan to be quilting more. What are your plans for the New Year?

Seeing your work for the year all put together is just stunning. You are an amazingly creative and productive person. No need for any kicking ;)

I love your finishes! I was also a little bummed about not having more quilts finished, and have to remind myself that at the end of the day, this is my hobby and is meant to be fun! It can be hard to prioritize projects in limited sewing time, and that is my hope for this year-that I can focus on projects I really want to do. I feel it's easy for me to get sidetracked -there are so many pretty things out there I want to make!
Let me know when your fabric line is coming out-I'm excited to see what you came up with!

Wow, you were super productive in 2012. Are you coming to Quiltcon? I think you said you couldn't do Sewing Summit and Quiltcon, but maybe you figured it out. Happy New Year!
