New Years Eve

All around blogland I've been seeing posts that reflect 2014.  Quilter's are such a generous group of people, who share and inspire, motivate and create, compliment and critique.  I am blessed to call myself a quilter and a blogger. 

While I feel like I've accomplished a lot this year, I know that 2015 is where the work will really be done to continue to move forward making my way in this world as a full time quilter.  I caught up with an old friend over the holidays and she asked if I was still quilting.  She pops in and out of my blog and I was a bit caught off guard about this statement.  Then I realized I have not shared much of my work this past year.  I've been submitting projects to magazines and that has kept much off my blog.  I hope to show most of it this coming year.

I'll leave you with my favorite project that has been in the works for 4 years, yes, 4.  My goal is to have it bound and washed by this day in 2015.  However, there will be a move this spring, but I'm carving out time for this and making it a priority. 
 
My Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt
 


 
 
I hope to show a finished quilt this day next year.   And to all my friends, I'm wishing you all the best that life can bring to you in 2015.

Wishing you a New Year filled with blessings ...have we really been at this Cherry Tree quilt that long?? Did some handquilting on mine at our November retreat (the first weekend) and have not touched it since then. Hope to stitch on it each day now - even if only 1 row. It is a goal...

OMG! This is going to be absolutely gorgeous when it is all done. I for one can't wait to see it done. I will cheer you on; and hopefully you will have it all done long before December 31, 2015. Have a wonderfully Happy New Year Sharon. Wishing you all the best this upcoming year.
