The Year in Review

I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers have posted photo montages of their accomplishments in 2011.  Of course, most of those “review” posts were done on January 1 or very close to it.  But, I’ve been running to catch up all my life, so I figure mid-January is “on time” for me!  LOL!

2011 quilts

Apparently, 2011 was the Year of the Quilts for me.  A year ago I don’t think I would have considered myself a quilter, but looking at these photos it looks like that is what I am!

2011 projects

It’s funny that I mostly consider myself a dollmaker, but there have been only two dolls this past year.  I spent a lot of time dabbling in art journaling, and of course a lot of swaps.  This collection doesn’t include postcards since I have already done reviews of them here and here.

2011 embellishing

The most productive part of my year, however, has been the Sunday experiments.  This is a pretty impressive collection of small art.  It’s been a lot of fun and very educational.  And the best part is that I will continue them through 2012!

It’s good to take a quiet moment for reflection.  It not only helps determine how you want to go forward, but it can surprise you with just how much you can accomplish!

Oh boy!  I can’t wait to see what I get into next!

Isn't it mind blowing when you sit back and look at what you achieved in a year! I wrote a list of every item I'd stitched one year, and could hardly believe my eyes!
You do such a variety of things though, which is even more mind blowing to me!
