"I am behind my time..."

Just like ole Bob Cratchit, I am a little bit late.  This is my first post in 2019.  Coming out of the holidays and into the new year, dreary winter weather, and not as much daylight as is good for you, are all things that never fail to put me into a real funk in January and February.  The low mood wasn't really bad this year, but adding being super busy to that, well, you get the picture.  Spring IS right around the corner which should be reason enough to perk up, but one day of sunshine in the last two weeks isn't helping.   Nevertheless, here I am!

I have been busy and getting into my sewing room some, but I thought I would summarize 2018 before sharing what I've been up to lately.  I HAD 17 FINISHES LAST YEAR!  (If you click on any highlighted quilt names you can read more about it.)  I noticed I had a slow start in 2018, too, with my first finish being in March.  Hmmm, I see a pattern here.

MARCH finishes --

"Zen Chic" 


















Two "Tom & Jerry" quilts 















APRIL FINISH --

Two doll quilts for "A Doll Like Me" 
















MAY FINISHES --

Josh's T-Shirt quilt  and  "Hypnotic"





















JUNE FINISH --

"Riding in Cars with Denise" 

















JULY FINISHES --

Doll quilt for "A Doll Like Me",  AJ's quilt, and "Disaster Averted"


















AUGUST FINISH --
  
"A Quilt for Joan" 




















SEPTEMBER FINISH --

"Love and Friendship"
















OCTOBER FINISH --

"Retro Frames"
















NOVEMBER FINISH --

"Gemini"




















DECEMBER FINISHES --

"StL Cards".....  




















.....and "Tickled Pink"

This is one I haven't shared before.  I sneaked it in at the last minute between Christmas and New Years.  I needed a little "Sewing Room Therapy" so I made one last charity quilt for the year.  I keep a box of bright 5" squares and some pieces large enough for backings just in case I feel like sewing but don't really have a plan.  This is the result. A quilt for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.




















I'm thinking 2018 was a very good year!

  1. A very good year indeed! I am truly loving this post!! LOVE the quilts. Love the ability to read their stories. Love having the whole year together in one place. Now, have you done this for all of the previous years - from the beginning? I would be thrilled to see that! Perhaps something to consider... ��
