As I tried to figure out what to write to close out my blog for 2010, I realized that I did not have enough fabric finishes to fill up a photo collage, like so many others were doing. Was it because I hadn't finished anything or because I hadn't kept track? I think it may be a little of both.
But I haven't learned how to do all of that fancy stuff, like photo collages that are links. Then I saw the index page that Elizabeth at Such A Sew and Sew made to log her finishes last year. I realized that a list that links to the finishes, as I post them on my blog, made perfect sense to my list crazy brain. I am all about lists. I make lists for everything and I even have a list of my lists.
She generously offered the use of her button and gives instructions on how to make a link back to the index to post on your blog. Thank you so much Elizabeth. I am sure that I could have thought of something so profound yet so simple, if I wasn't busy with all of my lists.
So here goes.
- Yellow Brick Road - Finished on January 25, 2011 - This is for my sister Jennifer.
- Red & Black Mug Rug - Finished on January 30, 2011 - Machine Applique project with TAS(Tallahassee Applique Society)
3. Flying Machines - This quilt was given to my grandson David on his 9th birthday. It was 6 hand embroidered flying machines and 6 machine pieced blocks, quilted on the domestic frame with a dark blue varigated King Tut Superior thread. It was finished on March 9th, 2011.
Happy New Year,

July - A Quilt of Valor - A group quilt by my Thursday evening Sit n Stitch. It will be donated to the national organization that gives quilts to our service men and women that have been wounded. I love the colors, and it was a fun project.

A Girl Can Get Tired of Diamonds - This turquoise diamond quilt is hand pieced, using the English Paper Piecing technique and it was 15 years in the making. Glad to get this one done.

November - Beading Projects - This is my new favorite obsession. I hesitated to add them to this list, but I realized that they are part of my creative productivity and thus should be chronicled here.
