The End

Today is the last day of 2011. I'm not sad to see this year end. In fact, I'm thrilled. This has been a tough year. Our basement flooded more times than I can count. Okay, not quite. Just 4 times. But still. Once would have been sufficient. And then to end the year with a fizzle, Curly found out his employers would no longer support his working at the dinner theater. Losing income is never pretty.

On the other hand, we have had some good times, too. I found out a year ago that I would be part of Amanda's team. I think we can all agree that that's been fun. Especially the party. And I actually managed to finish a quilt (or two) this year.

Here's what I finished:












11 quilts!! That blows my mind a bit. And that's not counting all the table runners, bags, and craft show items I made as well. I've been busier and more productive than I thought!

My goal for 2012? Pretty simple -- 12 in 2012. I think this is pretty doable, since I have several quilts-in-progress right now. If I just finish those, I'm more than halfway there!

Also for 2012 -- The Weekender Bag. I will not be afraid!

Some great finishes there Little Missy! I LOVE LOVE that first star quilt. I'm with you -- not sad at all to say goodbye to 2011, but with aging parents, I'm thinking 2012 might have some challenges. Think positive thoughts. I'm thinking them for your basement!
