Thank you 2011.

Pin It You made my dreams come true in the form of a sweet little girl.

My favorite

Scarlet Grace was my best finished project of 2011.

And here are a few more:

2011 finished quilts

I might feel bad about the fact that my WIP/UFO list is far longer than my finished projects list for the year, but that little girl above explains it all.  I am not great with sewing during the first trimester, third trimester, and/or before baby is sleeping through the night.

For 2012 --

My goals:
- to publish a pattern (or 2 or 3)
- to tidy up my out of control stash/WIPs by actually completing a good chunk of projects (in other words, I wanna be like Kelly) ;)
- to make a couple King-sized quilts
- to learn to knit (thanks Amanda!)
- to learn to can (again -- thanks to Amanda)
- to start some regular school time with my big boy
- to simplify my house
- to remember that we have one income, and stay within our means
- to continue to delight in my big man, little man, and little girl

Thanks for sticking with me through a slow blogging year!  I have no doubt my productivity will pick up with the number of consecutive hours Scarlet sleeps.

I think I can...I think I can...

Pin It 10 days left...
The quilt top for Steiger's new big boy bed is complete and ready to be basted, quilted, and bound.

He picked out most of the fabrics, and I'm happy to say this quilt was an all stash quilt. :)

I pulled out my Christmas Bee quilt from last year... debating whether I want to try to finish it, but I think I will... (try that is)

I've decided that because she is too young to know any different, and this is the only Christmas where she will actually be inexpensive, Scarlet's quilt will probably wait... as it still needs borders and the rest.

Scarlet has become my little sewing buddy, as she has learned how to sleep in her swing. ♥ (Steiger never would)

I miss her when she sleeps (and have been known to wake her up at times), so this is nice, because I can still see her.

Off to play with Steiger while Scarlet is still napping!
Merry early Christmas!
