Ours started in the best possible way, with the discovery of Roscoe, languishing at the pound. We'd been by 4 or 5 times, looking for him, had his picture posted on their bulletin board, advertised on Craigslist, put him on Facebook...and I walked in and found him cowering in a corner of a cage. It was going to be my last visit, since I was mentally preparing myself to give up on finding him. After 15 days, what was the likelihood? Slim to none? He was so bruised and torn up, I didn't recognize him.
It is good to begin 2015, with everyone/every dog where they should be!
And now it's time to wrap up 2014. What did I accomplish? Apparently I finished 18 quilts, 64 postcards, 33 quilted cards, 40 heart ornaments, and 3 garments.
Oh wait! I finished three more postcards on Monday 12/29. I forgot about them!
It looks like I finished a lot more than it felt like. It felt like I didn't get any quilting done. 2015 is going to be a year for finishes. I can feel it!!
And the amazing thing? I ended with a mere 30 carry-over quilts from my 2014 UFO list!! That is an all-time low, for as long as I've been keeping record. Sure, there will be new additions, but not that many. Maybe a few baby quilts that are already cut out, and the wedding quilt, but wow! I might actually conquer this list if I really put my mind to it!
And with that, we'll announce our motto for 2015, "Goals are good!"
Yeah, I know. Same old, same old, but it's a classic, and it works for me. Why mess with a good thing? Happy New Year!!!
