The numbers are in... and they shocked even me!

Since I started quilting about 11 years ago, I have kept a journal of every quilt I've ever made, plus other sewing related items... pillows, pillowcases, shorts, pants, PJ's, jackets. For the first 9 years or so they all fit in 2 Quilt Journals... the green ones sold at Hancock's or Wal-mart. In 2007 I started and ended one that year, so I started a new one last year. I just finished putting the photos in it for 2008 and yes, it again was full, so the three projects I have done for 2009 will have to go into a new book. In all honesty, I couldn't believe I had filled the book this year. The wedding took up a lot of time and two new jobs this summer, have kept me very busy. Looking back I didn't realize how many bags/purses I had made this year either! My most prolific month was definately July when I was in competition with Jen and Jill, I got a lot done then.
A look at the numbers:
Large Quilts (Lap or bigger) : 10
Baby Quilts: 4
Purses/Bags: 25!!!
Wall Hangings: 11
Tablerunners/toppers: 14
Clothes: 8
Quilts quilted for others (Mom & MIL): 5
Other (pillows, ironing board covers, guest book cover): 10
Part of a special quilt: 3
I'm looking forward to what the new year will bring and seeing how much I get accomplished in 2009.

Wow! That is a lot!! I was thinking of adding it all ub but it sounded like a big job. Now I just might have to take the time and do it.

Jennifer said...

Wow - what a year! Imagine all you'll get done when you aren't planning a wedding and learning a new job x 2!
