Thank you 2011 ...

... I learned a lot this year ... and I achieved a lot more than I ever expected in so many ways!

As the year is almost over, it's good to look back ...
it's had it's ups and downs,
plenty of veg from the plot, lots of baking, loads of jam and chutney

and plenty of stitching, especially following the arrival of my studio in January ...



so these are the finished quilts, with a couple of imposter's,
one obvious, the other not so ...  but I just had to include it...

that one quilt has had a profound impact on so many people, for all the right reasons

it continues to fill me with joy as much as it continues to comfort it's owner  :) 

And so I look at those 19 quilts and realise how productive a year it has been, yet I only managed to complete 3 of my UFO list for the year ... oh well, some is better than none!

which gives me hope that 2012 will be equally as productive a year as it fast approaches,
there is another UFO on the frame fast nearing finished ...

Thank you all so much for your friendship, encouragement and support over the last year, I truly appreciate every one of you :) 

Wishing you all a healthy, happy New Year!

When you look at it like that, it really shows how busy you've been. Specially cos that doesn't include all the other, smaller quilty projects you've probably done over the year.
