Year End Review




The numbers are staggering...37 quilts! I know this collage has three repeats because I would have to have made 39 to make it come out even, but still! Thanks to all of you who joined the Make Me a Quilt List and gave me a real reason to make new work. I will never be able to thank you enough for the encouragement and collaboration you have provided. My life has new meaning because of this project.

The painting output is meager in comparison. But I do have plans to return to painting in 2014.

And the knitting continues. I just now finished #9 of the Diamond Patchwork Jackets I promised to knit. It's the first one in this collage. Of all these pictures I only kept the bottom center two for myself. All the rest are in the Knits for Others category.

It has certainly been a great year for me and I look forward to new adventures in 2014. I hope you'll be here to share the fun.

  20. Gee...I'm really happy your life has new meaning.....mine too....I feel like a slug with my comparative meager output. BUT....I know this is not a competition, and you have inspired me (and tired me). I did however, finish a scrap quilt (2440 different fabrics) that I started in 2001, so I plan to stretch out the self congratulation on that one for a while yet. Here's to a productive 2014 for all of us!

  21. Although I can see regularly, through your blog, how productive you are, I am still AMAZED at how productive you are. You have such good self discipline about getting to and completing projects. I greatly admire this about you. Once again, thanks for sharing your thoughts and creative process with us. Best wishes to you and Dave (and "the kids") for a truly happy healthy 2014!
