2014 Closeout Post

Well, 2014 is officially over. I can't quite believe it is gone. The time flew tis year, and if the end of 2014 is any indication, 2015 will be just as wild....but more on that later.....this post is about what we got finished and what we didn't. We'll have another post later this week that outlines what I want to accomplish for 2015....

It was a pretty good month, while there were a lot of parties, there was not a lot of teaching due to the Christmas season. It was nice to see family, hang out on couches while knitting, and just generally have fun for a while. I worked quite a bit, but it wasn't the frantic stay up all night to get things done type (which I now need to make up for by speccing some time frantic all sewing).

So, on that note, back to the project list....

The goals as stated at the new year are in black, amendments (changes/additions, etc) are in blue, and status is red....

1. Captain's Wheel complete and sent to the quilter in February. I'm about to send a search party for this one!
2. Celtic Wave (Queen) - Piece Along to start in mid-February! complete and sent to the quilter in July.
3. Flower's for My Wedding Ring - For the first time in 6 months or so I actually worked on this one, I got a couple of ring sets done (though not enough to assemble anything yet).
4. Scrappy Trip This one is on the design wall, just need to spend some quality time with it. It is still on the design wall.
5. Osprey's Nest Done. Closed.
6. Hawaiian/Prairie Star - Added in April, I have cut it all out. and I will be taking it on retreat this weekend. So fingers crossed a lot will get accomplished. Got nothing accomplished on this one.....
7. Fire Island Hosta Queen - Added in April. I have cut this one out as well. I should take it to retreat, but that might mean I get neither we'll have to see. Done. 

1. Winter Wonderland - I got it back and I love it. I posted some pics, and did a blog post.
2. Glacier Star - Handed over to the quilter while I was in Montana. Headed back my way.
