Thank you 2013!
I recently read the heartfelt summary of Esther's 2013 quilting year over at IPATCH. I just loved how she had laid everything out in a nice and friendly way. Her projects, her patterns and then her giveaway!
But the most outstanding detail of Esther is that she's only been writing her blog for only one year!
If you haven't been over and checked out her stuff, then you are really missing out. Esther is a school teacher by day and a quilter by night. I've enjoyed reading her blog for about 6 months or so.I have one of her patterns on my Craftsy Wishlist. Its the Take A Bow A&B.
I decided I'd look back on my 2013 and see what I've done. Actually looking back on my past year, its been super busy and I did lots of family visiting this past year.
To start out in January 2012, I was well into the deep, intimate work of the Smithers 2013 Centennial Quilt. I began the year with this posting of the work being done on the Green Forest Crazy Block, this post is full of information on the previous 2012 work on the Smithers 2013 Centennial Quilt.
Fortunately, I have my sweetie who takes care of me and he swooped me away for two vacations this year and I really needed it.
My friend Charrine on the left, showing off her hand made blankets, this image contains a link to her Facebook page for more information. Aren't they gorgeous??
I joined in with Jess over at The Elven Garden in her quilt along.
And of course, my "Beach House Crazy Quilt" was accepted into the "O Canada" special exhibit at the International Quilt Festival and Market. It was packed up and moved several times throughout 2013 in the USA. This made my 2013 ever so special, thank you to all my readers, email and otherwise.
I'm off to another great year, 2014 here we are!
