Looking back at my sewing projects from last year, I found that I was a bit busier than the year before. I finished 6 quilts, made 4 bags, 2 pillowcases, 2 pot holders, 2 matching place mats, 1 cat toy, and several cloth wipes (for my granddaughter). That makes for 17 completed projects. Not too bad.
I also completed 9 quilt tops that didn't get finished. At least a couple of them I plan to quilt myself, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. One I know I plan to have quilted, but I haven't bought backing yet. And one of them is quilted, but not yet bound.
It seems like the UFOs are starting to pile up a bit again. I guess I should get to work on that this year. But I also have several designs that I've dreamed up that I haven't made yet, so those are calling to me, too. So how piecing almost always wins out over finishing. . .

I like the way that the vertical stripes in the hearts bisect the horizontal stripes in the rest of the quilt.

My cat, Dusty, is photo-bombing the picture.

They have an old shipping box that they like to lay in like a cat bed, so I'm going to drape this in the box. It might make the box a little more comfy for them, and it should definitely make it look less like I just have an old Amazon box sitting around on the floor for no reason. Hopefully it will be a win-win situation.
