As December 2020 comes to an end, I celebrate a couple of anniversaries.
First, it is HeartStrings’ 14th anniversary. It’s hard to believe it was that long ago that a group of like minded quilters started working on a project to make and donate quilts using our leftover strips and strings and what was intended to be a short term project extended into the permanent group we are today. It’s one of the important things in my life that gives me purpose and a feeling that I make a difference.
These are just a few of the string quilts I have made and donated over the years I’ve been a part of the HeartStrings Quilt Project. I love how different they can all look and that they use those leftover bits and pieces that many throw or give away.
The second anniversary this month is my 15th year blogging! That’s 15 years of documenting my quilting progress, my travels, my family, and other interests. I’m grateful to those of you that come to visit and have become friends and I love sharing our quilting and other interests.
In case you’re wondering this is what Keith and I looked like 15 years ago (it was taken a few months after I started blogging).
And finally, all the talk of anniversaries made me realize I’d let an important one slip by in August – it was my 20th anniversary as a quilter. Here’s hoping I have 20+++ years left to quilt!
