|First Finished Quilt 1/29/2012.|
I have learned so much from you all and I think I would probably still be working on the quilt pictured to the left if it wasn't for all of your help & support! Thank you everyone!

If someone would have told me that I would have a Weekender bag of my very own or that I would be able to sew a dress, I would have thought they were crazy! After all, I couldn't even get my seams to match on simple patchwork quilt! My two biggest takeaways from 2011:
• Try new things whether you think you can do them or not. It is usually easier to do than you think!
• Skills definitely get better over time! Keep moving forward!
At the beginning of the year, I stated that my main goal for this blog was to document my sewing projects and to keep track of the projects I have completed. I have the same goal for this year. I want to get better at the documenting part. My biggest sewing related goal is learning FMQ. I have so many quilt tops lying around, because my quilting wants surpass my quilting skills!
I've been absent from my blog for the past couple of months, because of a busy holiday schedule and a finicky sewing machine. I got a new sewing machine (Janome HD1000) last week and I am excited to get back to sewing. I am just waiting on some sewing machine feet to arrive in the mail!
Thanks again for following my blog over the past year!
