A look back at 2008

I’ve seen several “a year in review” type posts today, and it seems only appropriate that I do the same.

Last year at this time I never would have imagined that I’d have a blog, or that I’d become a quilter, or that I’d rather buy fabric than clothing. Who would have guessed!

In fact, it’s only exactly one year ago that my mom taught me how to sew. At the time, I wanted a reusable market bag. I figured I could get her to make me one, and that would be the end of it. Instead, I seemed to have gotten hooked…

I started this blog in June of 2008, with the intention of it being a photo blog (hence the name!). My interest changed to sewing after being inspired by all the crafty people out there who have their own blogs, or who share photos on Flickr. Through the wealth of information available online, and through the help of other bloggers who went out of their way to provide helpful suggestions (thanks Alissa!) I somehow became a quilter.

I finished these 10 quilts in the last half of 2008, and I have 5 others which are well on their way to becoming quilts. I think there will be many more to come… I am really looking forward to 2009 and all it has to bring! Thank you to everyone who visits my blog and to all of those who leave such kind comments. I truly appreciate each and every one.

(and if tree skirts count, then here’s #11!)

I wish you all a very happy new year!
