with last minute planning because
her husband to be was coming home on leave
for a week and they wanted to be married

finished and delivered this baby quilt
 to baby Miles who is just adorable

organized just a bit so I could use my stash
better and it did help to have it by color

made some hearts to show a friend some love

made a cover for my hard working sewing machine

partied with some special peeps

worked on my farmgirl quilt
and I am pleased so far with it
I was told that I MAY need to make FIVE of these
one for each of my nieces for the history of the farm and 
family   (oy vey)

entered a stocking contest
and lost but this little guy was cute and
worth it

built a house
so I built a lean to

made and donated pillowcases and quilt
ufos to those affected by Harvey

so fun  outdoors and pigroast
cant get any better than that

I do in 2018

joined a bunch of slab squares and made some
tops to be tied or quilted later on down the road

made some cute mats for the cats out of leftover
pieces that 
ahem...... SOME friends would throw away
(not mentioning any names Jacky am I ?) lol

had some quilt show fun with my buddy

and literaly RAN out the door with these
bags of scraps for ONE DOLLAR
yes you heard that right
didn't know I could RUN that fast HA HA
and some cool stuff we got in there too!

made pillowcases to donate out of fabrics I no 
longer loved as much
funny how when made into the cases
I wanted to keep them all

said Hi to Mom while displaying her pumpkin
she said Hi from Heaven <3

got some of this fun yarn

and learned that it is quick to knit up
a project with it

had fun with Dad at the Fair in NH
funny I was with Dad and two of my brothers
and we saw every "guy"thing there
but none of them knew if there were quilts 
or canning or "girl" things displayed 
I still had a great time
until the drizzle kind of fizzled our fun

these guys were fun to watch
and there were TWO teams that were controlled
by of them I swear was
50 lbs soaking wet but those horses didn't
give her any trouble at all!

it was PERFECT and so so fun

the hunting cabin in Maine
Dunkin was inspecting my stitches to make
sure it was worthy

but  I did get a lot accomplished so lets
chock up 2017 to a successful year

hoping 2018 is a good one too!

Dawn, you got a lot accomplished!!! I think I had a productive year too but not so sure about 2018; not going to plan too much! Have a Happy New Year!

In 2016, I had made a list of 2017 goals on my whiteboard. There were seven, and as I accomplished them, I erased them. Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me remember what they were. But I accomplished six things out of seven on my list!! Yay! The one I didn't accomplish was "carpet cleaning," so I have a feeling it wasn't a great list anyway. I gotta get a new system. I should also figure out some funner goals.
