2008 - A Year In Review

This is how I used over 400 yards of fabric in one year:
I completed 21 UFOs from a list made on January 1, 2008

I completed a total of 137 quilted items including:
8 queen quilts
5 twin quilts
17 lap quilts
6 wall hangings
18 baby quilts
83 other projects including 19 stockings, 18 pillowcases, 8 fabric baskets, 6 placemats, 9 bags/purses/wallets

Where are they now? Of those 137:
70 - went to charity
33 - were given as gifts
25 - are mine
9 - were commissioned

In addition to the 116 items that I started and completed this year, I have 17 NEW UFOs to start this year with.

Whew, it makes me tired to compile all of this. Tomorrow or Saturday I will post a summary of quilting for others.
That is, of course, if I can tear myself away from that new little grandbaby due tomorrow morning at 11AM.

You are a machine! It made me tired just to read that impressive list. Are you sure you don't have elves?

Great accomplishments. You certainly have me beat. I hope 2009 is just a productive for myself. Happy New Year.

"To quilt is human, to finish divine." With all those 2008 finishes, I think you've reached divine status!

Enjoy your new little one!
