|Looking back I found all the quilts, large and small that I did in 2013. At first I thought, "that's not much for a whole year" but when I thought about it a little longer I gave myself a pass because last year was not easy yet I kept on working at something I loved doing. A lot happened in my life. I lost a daughter, brought a condo and moved, had health issues, traveled to teach more than I have done in several years and began to vend at quilt shows. I brought a new car, rather a SUV that will make packing and ferrying stuff to vend at quilt shows easier.|
Yes, I had a full calendar and while you can not tell just how large some of these pieces are from the photo images, five (5) are rather large. I also had a very successful selling year and a lot of my work from previous years now hangs in other peoples homes rather than residing rolled up in my closet. So of that I am really happy. I am also pleased that I am still painting and quilting the images I love along with painting and quilting some of the smaller pieces that started off being made as class samples but are now being produced to sell in my vendor booth.
I joined two groups of women and I love being a part of both groups.
I am dyeing fabric again, something I haven't done seriously since moving to Florida in 2009.
The stuff I didn't get done last year that was on my to do list for 2013 that I still want to do and are:
write and finish a book and/ or get an instructional DVD done. About the book, I have only three chapters done so far. I wanted to enter my work in some in and out of state quilt shows. I didn't get far with that plan and entered quilts in only one in state contest.
Oh well there is 2014.
Hope you all have a wonderful, creative and blessed New Year.
