2012 Completions

2012 was year of the baby. Five of my seven quilting creations this year went to babies, including my own! First-trimester tiredness stalled me out from about February to June, but then I made up for lost time in late summer and early fall. Haven't done much since baby A came in October, but that's all right; First-time motherhood means I get my first chance to enjoy baby quilts received instead of given.

  1. There's no doubt about it - you had a VERY busy 2012! I hope that 2013 is just as enjoyable - and productive - as 2012 for you!
