Goodbye 2013!

This past year has been wonderful and really hard all at the same time.  Living in a hotel for a month while we waited to find out if my husband's job in San Diego was going to work out was not my favorite part, but I have lots of happy memories from this year and we are so happy where we are that 2013 was definitely a great year.
This past year inluded opportunities that I didn't even know existed and it has allowed me to push myself into trying new things.  I am so grateful for everyone who reads and comments on my posts.  I remember when I started this blog and I thought that if one day I could reach 500 followers that would be amazing.  It seemed unattainable.  Thank you so much.
I don't want to set goals for myself for this coming year because I want to leave myself open to new projects.  My main goal is just to keep starting projects that interest me and then (and this is the important part) finish them.  I am finishing off this year without any WIPs on the sidelines, just a couple of current projects, and I hope to finish 2014 the same way.

In January I will be celebrating a big birthday and I am approaching 1500 Bloglovin followers so watch for a thank-you-for-being-amazing giveaway soon.  I hope you all have a happy new year!

I am brand new to your site, and I'm amazed at your beautiful work. My grandmother was a quilter, and it's always been my intention to try it "someday". I will be 66 next week, and because of the inspiration of your lovely work, and in honor of my dear Mamaw, I'm making 2014 my year to make a quilt. It may not be a huge one, or an exquisite one like yours, but it will be a start. Thanks for inspiring me to try.
