2015 In Review-wow!

Hi everyone, I can see that everyone is a busy little elf right now!! Such fun! I decided to do a Year in Review as suggested by my son. 

Burkley's Quilt 
39 x 54 in.

Bat Girl Goes Out
31.5 Square

Clever Embroidery Series was a total hit.

Wendys Quilts and More does beautiful cross stitch and so much more!

I finally completed earrings and necklace in return for a donation of beads in turquoise from Zenia Rene.

And I've continued writing my Artisan Crazy Quilts book due out in the New Year.

I'll be joining up with Faeries and Fibres for her 2015 EPP Quilt Along. i urge you to visit Karen's blog to see her mouth watering EPP goodness for any further encouragement to become a follower and join us.

As I was constructing this last blog post of 2015, I learned that I've done a lot more quilting this year and that means my quality of life has improved as my doctor put it, less pain equals a happier Caroline.

I followed along almost completed my participation with Kaaren's Houses Quilt which she hosted and is such a gracious lady, one you should start following!! I intend to finish this up after Christmas, I'm taking three weeks off from my blog and will happily be finishing up my studio redo.

I finished up Micaela's Birthday table runner a little wee late, but better finished than never! She texted me a photo of it on her table, I'll have to update that later.

This little gem of a quilt was made a decade ago and the photo arrived this year!

My facebook page is not listed as Good Earth Quilting. That name was taken and I had to choose Carli The Quilter, so this is why some of you are having a hard time finding me there. My personal page can be found at Caroline Heinrichs.

I'm crazy quilting all the time!

I finished up my Pretty Petals and its living in my studio!

I've continued to be sought after for T-shirt quilts.

I volunteered a few hours to Quick W.I, in laundering and pressing their antique linens.

I even managed a small part of the Summer issue of Quilter's Connection.

This is one project that will be finished soon and becomes birthday.

My online friend and quilting blogger Carolyn Wainscott sent me something very special in the mail. 

This busy senior quilter is a vital discussion partner around successfully blogging with income generation path in mind. Her Google+ page is something else and one very worth visiting. Her fabric prints of Jesus Loves Me is one of my newest projects to finish this is applique, thread painting or whatever I decide to do, Carolyn is open minded and happy to see any of my ideas expressed in fabric.

I've been really finding the value of this Three Hour Table Runner. I've made a bunch of table runner's that I'll have to post about in the new year.

If you don't have three hours to whip up a spartan on time project, do check out my Two Hour Slice and Dice Table Runner.

My family is gathering from several corners of the country starting soon. One of our sons has a 30th birthday happening as well. Boxes are getting packed with handmade gifts and much loving intentions. Gifts made by our hands are the best indeed. Hope you find new handmade items come to you this year!

Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year!
