Wow - 2010 - What a Year!

Wow!  2010 has been quite a year for this Gen X Quilter.

The year started out finishing up a lot of UFOs, started in '08 or '09 before or when pregnant with little guy #2.  After he turned 6 months old in January 2010, I starting getting my sewing mojo back. 

In the spring, my mom and I had a Mother/Daughter Quilting Day, where I taught my mom to quilt from square one.  That was in April.  Now it's all she talks about, and I was SO jealous when she called me up the other day telling me she bought a Sunkissed Layer Cake!


I started another blog (which I don't have time to keep up anymore!) as a way to have a "quilt resume" since I was thinking of applying for a PT gig at a local quilt shop.

Somewhere in there Gen X Quilters hatched, I was inspired and enlightened by all the modern quilters I was meeting online.....and the rest is history!!!

(Somewhere in there I started the local chapter of MQG as well.)

Yikes!

2010 Stats:

Bed Quilts - 2

Table Runners - 1

Christmas Stockings - 2

Pillows - 2

Potholders/Mug Rugs - 4

Bag/Pouches - 3

Throws/Baby Quilts - 7

Overall, I am astounded by how much I was able to accomplish this year.  But I know in reality that I lost baby's morning nap in December, and that this kind of productivity in 2011 will be hard to match.  That's ok - I'm plenty inspired by all of you and it will just keep my list of "to-do" projects growing.

Cheers to a great year!
