Looking Back

Ten Years Ago This Month...

I was knitting a diaper soaker and pair of Lolita Toes and  thinking about casting on a Clapotis.  I was going to redo the bind off of the socks because the cuff is hard to get over my heel. They're still in the sewing room waiting for me to get around to it.

Instead of hitting the ground running every morning like the Fly Lady said to, I was creeping around quietly in the dark, trying to get stuff done before the children heard me and woke up. I still do that!

Five Years Ago This Month....

I was making lots and lots of scrappy little baby quilts -- 2010 was the year that I made 47 of them. For myself, I was putting together my scrappy Courthouse Steps quilt, the one that I redid a couple of years later as Moab or Sedona?

I'd just finished quilting 38, which was my birthday present to myself that year and figured out that the whole quilt cost me around $30 to make, including thread and batting and backing. Hooray for thrift store quilting!

I really like the courthouse steps quilt you showed. Nice walk down memory lane.

Wow, you have made a lot of things in the last 10 years. And I'm impressed that you are organized enough to keep track!
