2010 was a Very Good Year!

Ever since I decided to turn my love for quilting into a professional endeavor, year in and year out I have had the impression that I sew/quilt less than when it was a hobby. I might have been mistaken, as I have never before made an “inventory” of what I have been able to accomplish in a given year in terms of sewing/quilting, knitting/crocheting and other crafting. I decided to do precisely that today, and even though this is not complete, I have to say I am impressed! Who knew I had gotten this much done?

I take it back. Deciding to go professional is THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE! I am leading the life I love, doing the things I love, surrounded by those I love. Truly sweet.

I see now that 2010 was a year with quite a bit of crocheting/knitting – I hadn’t done this much in years! But then, Alexia and Julian are truly an inspiration for me.

I actually completed several large quilts this year:

And some wall hangings, most of them minis:

Not to mention a bevy of small projects:

I even managed to make a (small) dent in my pile of UFOs!

This was a good exercise… 2010 was a pretty good sewing year!

    My gosh Angie, you were really moving those fingers along, you finished alot! All wonderful, in various different shapes 🙂
    I found myself working with yarn more in 2010 than all other years combined. I enjoyed! Though fabric still reigns at the top.
    Happy New Year 🙂

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
