Goodbye 2014! Hope everyone enjoyed a safe and happy New Year's Day! I don't know about you, but I am ready to start a new year. Originally, I was not planning to do a 2014 recap because I'm not pleased with my lack of creating and blogging.
|Quilty New Year card|
Then I got to thinking about all the wonderful quilty experiences from 2014 and what I DID create. Here's a quick recap (in no particular order):
|Good times after a weekend of workshops|
SewDown Nashville was a blast! Four wonderful teachers, reconnecting with quilty friends and meeting new ones.
|My spiderweb quilt made with the help of my MCM Bee buddies|
Our Mid Century Modern Bee's second year was full of fantastic blocks, and my first completed bee quilt is my favorite finish of 2014!
|One of my favorite blocks|
I'm thrilled the Wish Circle of do.Good Stitches welcomed me to their group in February. I have long admired this charity bee.
|Collaborative quilt made for Doris|
Hard to believe 2014 was the fifth year retreating with my friends at Gruber's. I love these girls so much!
I attended several great classes and workshops in addition to SewDown. Here I am hanging with Carolyn and friends at Bok Tower Gardens for Carolyn's Quilting Florida exhibit.
|Me and Jacquie|
It was fabulous seeing Jacquie again in Florida where she gave a lecture and workshop at a LQS. Of course I attended both the lecture and workshop! Can't get enough of Jacquie!
|Love this one!|
|So happy my sister drove down for one workshop|
|Destined to be my first finish of 2015|
Joined others in Rachel's Angled Camp class as well as a pillow swap.
|Heart warming to see children enthusiastic about sewing|
Participated in Maker Faire Orlando where our booth won a ribbon.
|Festival of Trees quilt|
Our OrlandoMQG presented a collaborative quilt to The Orlando Museum of Art's Festival of Trees.
|32 Dear Jane blocks pieced in 2014|
I did not complete as many projects as I would have liked in 2014, but you can see a few shown on my quilty New Year card (first picture in post) and by clicking on the link on my sidebar.
Looking ahead to 2015, I am excited about...
Attending QuiltCon again. This time my sister is going as well!
Gruber's retreat in Minnesota!
|My sister will be sewing with the OMQG in 2015!|
The OrlandoMQG's sixth year.
Continuing with the MCM Bee and Wish Circle as well as joining a new Sew Sisters Bee.
Participating in several sew alongs and online classes including, but not limited to, 12 Months of Christmas, Choose Your Own BlockAlong, Pile O' Fabrics Skill Builder and EQ University.
Of course, I would like to finish more projects and be a consistent blogger.
Whew! This turned out to be a long post.
Thank you for continuing to stop by and an ever bigger thank you to those who leave comments ;-)))
Happy New Year!!!
