End of the World Recap

Whew! Last year was busy and fun. By the time October hit I was in a whirl wind of travel and sewing. How about a quick recap from then.

Beginner of October my husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary so we took a trip to an all inclusive resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We had a fun time making new international friends.P1000231 copy

I made my silk dress and Richard’s linen pants!


For another year I missed Halloween to attend the International Quilt Festival, but really I can’t say no to pretty quilts. It was also nice to get in touch with a college friend who just launched her first fabric line, Luxe in Bloom, with Art Gallery Fabrics.


I took a class on Impressionist Confetti Quilting to Noriko Endo and a class on Trapunto with Philippa Naylor.


I took too many pictures to narrow it down so here are a few.


In November I turned 27 with a sock hop birthday party!


Over Thanksgiving we spent two weeks with our friends in Seattle. Friends, food, beer and wine. It was great!



December was crazy with holiday markets. The first three weekends of the month were all dedicated to them. I crafted and sewed my heart out. I was so busy I didn’t get Christmas presents done and barely got my cards out in time. But in the end I’m happy I did all the markets. They were great!


And last here is my Christmas tree!
