2010 in review

so 2010 wasn't as successful as i would have liked. no free motion quilting was mastered. only four baby quilts were finished. no noticeable dent was made in my stash. and only a handful of cakes were decorated. i blame it on the baby. heehee.

but. we did get a lot done around our place. including a new circle driveway. remodeling the one bath into two. teaching my husband to do the ceramic tile. and installing the baseboards in the bedrooms. finally.  and in the kitchen, i made banana jam and meringue.  and i joined my first ever quilting bee, and my first ever quilt guild.  both of which i adore!!

so what's next for 2011?  my husband wants to get a well drilled, which will be a huge outdoor project, since they will have to trench in the water lines across the field below.  and i have big plans to finish a lot more quilts, maybe make some clothes for me and the kids.  it would be great if i could do at least one quilt-along a quarter.  here's one i'm thinking of joining.  and i may begin with rachel's postage stamp quilt.  i have a jelly roll of hello betty that would be lovely in this!  or if you need some new jelly rolls, head to fat quarter shop, buy two get 20% off(code psiquilt)













i want to do more canning.  and i absolutely must start exercising regularly, my body insists it's necessary.  it will be another big transition year for us, with daddy in a work outage for 4 months.  alex will start kindergarten, zach will start preschool, and i will be alone with one baby for a few hours a week.  so it's hard to say what will actually get done.  i'm being a lot easier on myself these days.  less pressure, more time to relax and enjoy things.  we'll see how long it lasts!

Hmm... You're tempting me with these quilt alongs...

But I have a few things I want to finish up first and I'm trying to NOT buy more fabric until I get a few things completed. Such a struggle!

Might join you on one this summer...

Let us know which one you pick! I've made a ticker tape one before. They're fun. I have a baby quilt I need to make in the next few months. Might whip one together...
