I wanted to quilt these:
It's pieced. I just need to figure out the quilting!
BOM: I wanted to embroider words as one of the borders. . .well, I still want to; but, need to be more proficient at the embroidery!
Chickens--this was a BOM from about 2007! I have most of the applique done. Need to put the blocks together and finish the applique that crosses over the blocks.
There are also some smaller projects; but, enough of what didn't get done as this is supposed to be a blog about FINISHING! :)
By the way, I plan to leave ALL of these projects on the list for next year!
I did quilt these:
made from some old blocks. . .hmmm the story could be a future blog!
Blueberry Lime. I blogged about it here and here.
Dad's Stars. I blogged about it here and here.
Ouch:A book club quilt for the book, "Jane."
Ripples: A book club quilt for the book, "The Husband's Secret." I blogged about it here.
Pathways: A book club quilt for the book, "Wild." I blogged about it here.
Joy One. I had LOADS to blog about the words here and here!
Joy Two: You can read about it here and here.
Circus quilt. This is a raffle quilt for a small group that I'm part of. I completed all of the machine applique.
Positively: A book club quilt for the book, "Where Lilacs Still Bloom." You can read about the process here, here and here.
The grands wanted pajamas and dresses/outfits. Of course, I obliged! You can read about the cape here. Last week, I blogged about the jean skirt and pajamas I stitched from fabrics that the grands had picked. You can see those photos here.

I embroidered 45 tea cup luggage tags as gifts for the Spring retreaters. Then I embroidered about a dozen more just for gifts!!
The theme for the Spring Retreat was "Tea for 42" so I made the tea cup luggage tags; but the other luggage tags were just too cute to not stitch!
There was also that special stocking.
I used about 65 yards of fabric from my stash. I replaced at least 15 yards; but I do have a little more space in my fabric tubs. The emphasis here is "little." My stash needs more thinning!
A highlight of the year was working with a small group and working through The Artist's Way exercises. I found the group input helpful and inspiring. It has been about six months since we met; but, I'm still following my plan. . .well, at least, I'm planning and working towards goals! It has been a great year! Now to refine my plans and make 2016 an even more productive year!
