The Last Day

Here it is, the last day of 2012. I started out the year extremely content. I loved our little house on Market Street. I thought we had the perfect number of children. I had big sewing goals -- 12 quilts in '12! -- and big personal goals as well.

Ha. Hahahahahhahhahhahahaha.

Lesson learned: never be content.

I am ending 2012 in a new house. In a new city. In a new state. We are adding another child. I came nowhere near my sewing or my personal goals. I am ending 2012 much happier than I started. How is that possible? I don't know. But it is.

 A highlight of my year was going to Market. The best part? Meeting my virtual besties in real life. Those gals continue to cheer me on and inspire me from afar.
 The second best part of Market? Being a part of the book. (PS -- I made the quilt below 3 times this year. The pattern is in the book. I never took a picture of quilt #2. I am lame.)
Another highlight? Meeting The Butlers.
In small circles, I'm kind of a big deal. In big circles, I'm a total doofus. (Did you notice that David and Amy don't wear name tags? That's how awesome they are. They don't need them.) (Did you notice my crazy stalker face? Yeah, me too.)
So here's my simple goals for 2013:

  1. Sew more. And finished some things -- namely my Halloween quilt. Oy.
  2. Have a baby.
  3. Be happy.
Here's hoping 2013 brings all of us the best year of our lives.

What a great post and an inspiration to us all! Sewing more is my only goal for 2013, but being happy should be on my list too! Having a baby is not:)
