2012 Year in Review - post 1 of 2

Happy New Year!!! 

I've had a busy day today sewing but sadly it did not produce any more finishes for 2012.  With less than half an hour before the clock strikes 12:00, I shall call it a day year! 

So, in pictures, here is my first post of two of my 2012 Year in Review:

Completed quilts - fronts and backs shown.  I only completed five quilts in 2012 but have ten quilts-in-progress so those will get their own mosaic 'of shame'!

Left to right:  A Frayed Frog (shaggy quilt), Vintage Holiday quilt, Siblings Together
charity quilt, Scrappy Log Cabin quilt and Green-Grey-Teal-Turquoise quilt.
 Mini quilts - here are the eight mini quilts that I completed in 2012.  My favourites were the spool for Brit Quilt Swap 3 and the ticker tape wall hanging for a scrappy swap.

Some really bad rainy day/no sun pictures sorry! 
Left to right top row:  Brit Quilt 3 Swap, Tag quilt, wonky Star shoulder quilt, Figgy Pudding table topper.
Left to right bottom row:  Ticker Tape wall hanging, Queen of Diamonds mini quilt, Green Squares mini quilt, Doll quilt. 

Quilts in progress - yes, there are ten quilts in progress here!  One is basted and waiting for my attention, another is about to be basted (my least favourite part of quilting) and the rest are a long way away from completion. 

Tutorials - I managed three tutorials this year! 
-A Frayed Frog
-Christmas Card Gift Box and Gift Tags
-Jam jar Pin Cushion

What a year it was.  I started 2012 by joining the London Modern Quilt Guild, starting my blog and joining Flickr!  I soon opened an Etsy shop, went to Fat Quartery retreat and joined in many a blog-hop and swap and four bees!  I participated in lots and lots of giveaways (and amazingly won a few) and had five giveaways of my own.  I managed to entice 340+ followers to follow my crazy little blog and I am so happy that you follow me in my adventures in this sewing/crafting/quilting/baking/gardening journey of mine!

2012 was also a year full of sewn 'schtuff' for me, all of which I hope to share with you in mosaic form in post number two!  So, until then - here is wishing you and yours a VERY Happy New Year.  May it be filled with good health and much happiness. 

Amy x
Happy New Year!
