This past Monday I was feeling kind of grumpy and didn't feel like sewing, but I didn't feel like staying in the house either. So I went over to the Studio with Joannie, and while she sewed, I poked through some boxes. I've been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing in both my Studio and my former sewing room in the house, which is now morphing into a home office and machine embroidery room. So things are moving from house to studio and from basement to upstairs and I keep finding all kinds of quilt projects and old fabric that I haven't seen in a while.
While we were vacationing at the Vermont Quilt Festival (blog report to come!) a few weeks ago, Carol's Dad asked if we ever finish any projects, so here is my mid-year report:
So far in 2012, I have finished 32 projects. Most of them have been small items. I have only kept three things and given away 29. There are 3 quilts (one lap and two baby), 3 tote bags, 2 blankets, 18 pillowcases, 2 sets of placemats, 1 vest, 1 taggie and 1 purse. Plus, I have made 24 items for our Etsy shop this year (this was the first year I've kept track of inventory that I've made, although I think that Marion probably makes double what I make). I also have 12 finished quilts that just need binding, 3 that need to be sent out for quilting, and one top waiting for borders (another oldie, although only from 2009).
