2013 - Fourth Quarter in Review


I finished this mini quilt which is made from the scraps of two custom quilts I made in February.  It is fun having a reminder of quilts I sold. 

It was my first time quilting with the walking foot on both sides of the seam.  I liked trying out a new quilting design on a small quilt.  It lives on my Cricut and makes a great dust cover. 

Then I finished this quilt (also my header) called Springtime Kisses.  I had to have a quilt made out of X's for my blog.  It is inspired by the March Mystery Quilt at Stitches and Sew Forth


My big quilty project for the month of November was this blog.  :)  I gathered lots of pictures of my quilts and wrote lots of posts.  I went through twenty years of quilting in just a couple of weeks!  It was exhilarating and exhausting, but so worthwhile.  Now that I am "caught up" I won't be posting as often. 

I also wrote my first tutorial...

And made lots more baby blankets

I was also able to make these two table runners for Christmas gifts. 


We took a little family trip to California in the beginning of December.  It was the big Christmas present for our boys.  We actually stayed in the Legoland Hotel and went to Legoland for three days.

Our boys loved the hotel.  We stayed in a pirate room. 

And is it any wonder that my Monkey loved the monkey model in our room? 

The boys also loved the disco music in the elevator and the giant whoopee cushion by the elevator. 

It is now our family joke to say, "Oh, you stinky pig."  Because that is what the Lego guy said when they danced on the whoopee cushion.  LOL

 It was so much fun, and very memorable.  We enjoyed the warmer weather at the park...

Because this is what we came home to!

After our vacation and the rest of the Christmas stuff was done, I was also able to finish this quilt for our home for Christmas.  It hangs in our kitchen. 

I was even able to get this quilt finished after Christmas before New Year's Eve. 

I am grateful I was able to get anything quilty done in the super busy, family-filled month. 

All in all, it was a great quarter.  I am grateful I now have this blog and my new friends.
