A Peek Over My Shoulder...at 2012

While not being a reflective kind of person, it is kinda fun to look back at sewing accomplishment over the last year.
One thing I have realized is that I seriously need to organize my photos better!
So 2013 will be the start of that project :-)
One the most enjoyable things for me this past year was making bags...completely surprised me how many I made,  from totes to coin purses. 
I will be making more next year considering the pile of purse frames I have!
 My crazy, mad crush on foundation paper piecing continued throughout 2012!
Had such a great time doing the Sew Out Loud QAL.

Of course, quilts continue to be the bulk of my sewing, but I think that will slow down in the future......ya right!
My actual favourite was Off The Grid (2nd row, right side)
I do love solids, which is why I am already in new bee starting in the New Year!

Star of Africa was my first bee, and it has been full of new friends, new sewing methods and no small amount of anxiety of my own making! LOL!
Do. good stitches warms my heart, and I am so pleased that I was accepted as a stitcher this year in the Happiness Circle. I really love the quilts we made!
I haven't made too many definitive plans for sewing in 2013. I'll just take it as it comes.
You know, join things when it feels right...or not!
When I look at my list for 2012, I accomplished about half, but then I added things that weren't planned.
So, it all works out!
My biggest plan is to improve my photography skills, and I am hoping that my brand new 50mm prime lens will go a long way to help that out! Woo! Hoo!

So here is wishing you all much love, happiness and health as we bring a new year in.
