…ago I started this blog, and I am so happy I did!
My life has changed for the better. Quilting and blogging have become my creative outlet to a busy fulltime teaching job as an art teacher in a high school / college. I so needed my own creative process and growth in skill.
Happiness, enjoyment, friendship, confidence, joy, and thankfulness! These have all come from this blog and quilting. I know you have heard this before in all of the New Year wishes of the other bloggers, but please let me repeat: “YOU ARE THE BEST!”
Thank you for letting me be part of your crowd, showing me all your pretty quilts, posting all kind of wonderful tutorials and videos that spurred me on and letting me test your patterns!
Thank you for supporting me, encouraging me, cheering me on, laughing with me, investigating with me, learning with me, hanging out with me, and indulging me buying lots of fabric while you are going on a fabric-fast!
Here are some mosaics I made as a summary for this year!
A year of experimentation:
Gifts for my friends and family:

And all of the FMQ I learned this year!
