Taking Stock

Just a day into the new year, so I'm not really too late to list the various projects completed this year.  It's been productive!  I made the following quilts:

1.  Woven Strips baby quilt, which was an auction item for Everybody Wins! Vermont
2.  Little landscape, sent to Ami Simms' Alzheimers Quilt project for sale (my oldest UFO)
3.  Cornucopia of Thanks (queen-sized and on our bed!)
4.  Hugs and Kisses baby quilt, sent to Oklahoma tornado victims
5.  Oma's MuuMuu quilt for Chris - it includes fabrics from clothes my mother gave me
6.  Licorice and Lime queen sized quilt, shown at this year's Central Vermont Quilt Show
7.  Purple Log Cabin for former neighbor Lori, recovering from surgery
8.  Twirly baby quilt, raffled off to benefit the children's room at the library
9.  Scrappy Stars small quilt, raffled off to benefit the branch library
10.  Traditional nine patch quilt, given to Mart, a victim of the Colorado floods
11.  Heart of Vermont sampler throw, made with guild round robin and blocks of the month blocks
12.  Family Estate wallhanging, now over the guest bed
13.  Purple and Gold Shoofly/Nine Patch throw
14.  Black/orange/blue throw, for Parkinsons Comfort project
15.  Christmas novelty square table topper for Axel in his new apartment
16.  Flying Diamonds quilt (to be photographed when I have two men to hold it up)
17.  Autumn Paths small quilt (to be photographed)

I am happy with this list, considering most of them have gone to good homes outside of ours.  I have only three quilts for sale on right now, but I plan to put the Flying Diamonds and Autumn Paths ones up soon.

I also made some table runners, place mats, wool appliqued pillow, mug rugs, coasters, hotpads, fabric baskets, and other small items for friends and family.  So it has been quite a good year.  I just made some seat belt covers for my Mom, but I forgot to take a photo before wrapping it up for mailing.  Who knows when I'll get to the post office, though.  It is snowing steadily today and "they" say it will continue through Tuesday!
