Happy New Year!

Can you believe it’s 2013???? Man! I can’t! Where does the time go??? AHHH!

I wasn’t going to post a ‘Best Of’ post, but I’ve been working on my blog a little bit and looking back over the past year and thought, ‘I’m looking at every single post, so why not??’ It’s been great looking back at how much I made this year and how fun so many of the projects were! Here are some of my favorites. These are purely my favorites, not posts that got the most views or anything like that! Just my favorites!



I’m still in love with my Row Row Row Your Boat quilt!


A cute little Valentine’s Day card


Another quilt for the Project Quilting Series. I loved making the postage stamp quilt based on where I live!


A Bear and his best friend Pear. Totally made up by my son! I love being able to bring his stories to life!


What an amazing trip to Gee’s Bend!


This was my first sewing machine cover. I’ve made a couple more since then, but love making them and love hearing that others are making them too!


My favorite shirt that I’ve made for my son!


Another doll. Drawn by a kiddo made by me!


This memory game was something I’d been wanting to make for years! So glad I finally did!


I think this sweatshirt I remade for my son is a super close second behind the 4th of July shirt!


The teeny tiny magnets were totally addicting!


Glitter glitter glitter! it just makes me smile!

2012 was a FANTASTIC year for me! Creatively, family and for my blog, too!  I hope it was for you too. My one hope for my blog is that it inspires someone to make something.

And here’s to another creative year!


Welcome 2013!

    I really enjoyed your best of 2012, and to my surprise there was one project I had missed! Now, I haven’t 😉
    Best wishes for 2013!

  2. I have so much enjoyed your blog this past year and can’t wait to see what you come up with this year! Your creativity is truly inspiring! I wish you could teach me how to sew! Happy New Year to you and your family!

  3. I won the memory game giveaway and they are adorable! I saved it for my grand-daughter to give for a Christmas present. She loves it! And to be honest, I had a hard time giving those cute critters up! Thanks again for such a sweet game!

  4. Happy New Year! I’m torn between the umbrella quilt and the memory game. Love them both!

  5. Just discovered your site via the Happy Hour link party! *Love* your craft projects – now following you via Pinterest 🙂

  6. Happy New Year! I still love your doll from the kiddy drawing – such a sweet idea.
