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.)

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!Pin It
