And this is the year it was.

Five blog posts. Plus this one. I don’t even know how to do this anymore.

Three quilts started, finished, and gifted.

Four quilt tops awaiting quilting.

Three quilts currently in progress.

Books read: 80! my highest number since 2012.

Masks made: 40? 50?

Mask patterns used: four

Other quilting highlights: I became sole owner of my longarm, and have it in my garage. I started working for a fabulous online fabric store, Troll Brothers Quilt Designs, both in person and writing her newsletters.

Personal highlights: My kids have been home since March 14th and I’ve been on leave from my job since early April. I have been fortunate enough to qualify for the government benefit programs. I say fortunate because the aid pays more than my actual job, so I’m coming out ahead. Also this is the first time EVER that I’ve been a stay at home parent and not depressed. Turns out I actually like my family!

I’ve had this picture on my desktop for most of the year. I like it.

A lot of my improv work has stalled this year as I have found comfort in precise piecing, and repetitive blocks. Quilts are quilts regardless of style and if it keeps someone warm, that’s what counts.

Here’s to you, and me, and more quilts in 2021. Happy New Year!
