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!
