It feels like a time for reflection. Its been a big year at the Sweet Liberty house. Here we go, month by month:
JanuaryI started out with a list of resolutions. I am happy to report that I have more or less met all of them (still trying to figure out Photoshop).
I also got my first Blythe doll!
AprilParticipated in my first Doll Quilt Swap.
Went to Spring Quilt Market. What an amazing experience!!
Dark times. Followed closely by an outpouring of support from all of my bloggy friends!
Wyatt's first birthday.
Was invited to design a quilt for Lecein. Had 2 weeks to design it, sew it and ship it off! It was an amazing experience, and I am so honored to be considered. I named the quilt "Mann Creek" after the farm my family settled over a 100 years ago in Idaho. You can download the free pattern here, along with many other fabulous free patterns.
The issue of American Patchwork & Quilting with my pattern in it comes out! In shocl for the most of the month!
I graduate with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
On a family trip to New York, get to meet the illustrious Gina Garan of "This is Blythe" at her NYC studio.
Ummmm...do I even need to remind you all of the sewing machine + finger incident?? It really kind of threw my whole month and Christmas off!
We had an amazing blizzard. Over 2 feet of snow and the whole city shut down for about 4 days. It was so peaceful...just being with the family at home.
New Year's ResolutionsI think New Year's is a great time to set goals. And putting them on your blog is a great way to ensure you complete them, right? My goals this year are:
Start publishing my own patterns
Have a booth at Fall Market as a designer (eeeek!)
Pick some ding dang curtains for the studio!
Eat healthier (I'm working on it!)
From Wilbur and the rest of the fam, here's to a great new year!
