One of my big projects this year has been organizing my family photos. Digitizing all the photos we took prior to digital cameras has been a huge task--but totally rewarding! I now have those pictures as screen savers on every computer in my house. I can sit and watch them for hours!
In the process I started collecting all the craft related pictures and realized how few I have from the years I first started sewing.
I did find this:
I've made 3 and 1/2 quilts in my sewing life so far, and this is the one that made me realize quilting isn't for me. I machine pieced and quilted it myself (this was quilt #2, the first was just a bunch of squares put together and quilted by tying), broke a whole lot of needles and spent more time freaking out about it than I should have. In the end it turned out beautiful and the recipient was very happy with their gift.
Yes, I learned that quilting, piecing all those little bits of fabric isn't my thing. So the 1/2 quilt sits in my UFO (unfinished objects) pile waiting for the day I feel brave enough to tackle it...today is definitely not that day!
