It’s been quite a year. When I was looking to see if I wrote a 2019 year in review, I realized there was very little that I wrote in the later half of last year. That’s because our dear friend Karen was well into her battle with cancer. She was in and out of hospitals and rehab centers and immobilized due to terrible lymphedema. Now, it seems like ten years ago. We got her home in March, just as we were on the brink of lockdowns. Shortly after, my mother-in-law died. She had a peaceful death and we had a lovely wake and funeral to send her off. That time with family and friends was healing. My heart aches for all of those who have been unable to visit loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes. We know that, all things considered, we were – and are – blessed.
The work at home caused a lot of people to finally do something with that pile of clothes sitting in the basement and I had a ton of requests for projects. That, plus my usual quilts and a couple large marching band upcycle projects made for my busiest year!
I’ve throttled my quilts a bit and sold a limited number of down payments for 2021 and am already selling 2022 down payments! I had an overwhelming demand for pillows and it’s always a challenge to fit those in at the end of the year, despite my best plans.
So, I’ll aim high and try my best to stay on top of orders!
