2013 RECAP

It's time once again to look back over the year and see what got accomplished. Lots and lots of blocks were sent away for various bees, but these are the quilts that actually got quilted and bound this year.
I'm posting this now because the chances of me having any more finishes before year end is slim. I hope you enjoy seeing some of these again.




These are two little quilts I did for two very special little people


Things got complicated right after delivery and baby B had to have open heart surgery


If I could add a caption for this picture it would say "dear Lord, please heal my brother"

the boys at three weeks



Not too shabby for a year.
Now to get on with my Christmas shopping. Enjoy your week         : )

An amazing collection , the kitchen sink is my favourite

Looks like you had a great year, Carla! Every one of your finishes is marvelous. You're very talented. You definitely had more finishes than me, though I sure was aiming for more. Not to call in the breast cancer card, but it did set me back a bit. But with "the bad health year" behind me, it's full steam ahead toward 2014 finishes! Here's hoping 2014 will be quilt-y great, for both of us!

I feel so un-accomplished after viewing your review - your quilts are fabulous!

Tiffany said...

Those twins are so precious! I'm a twin mama myself. :). Did baby B pull through okay?

Carrie P. said...

oh, the baby photos are so sweet. I can't even imagine how tough it must be for a baby to have that kind of surgery. After having it myself I know it is not fun at all.
Your quilts are amazing.
