2020 Wrap Up

Merry Christmas! Late as usual but wishing you ALL a good season and a bright outlook for the upcoming year!

Looking back on 2020 is a mixed bag of emotions. Pandemic. Guidelines. Limited Travel. Cancelled Quilty Events. That in itself is a depressing list. On the Up side though, Zoom. Spotify. Morning Walks with Gracie. Friends. Family.  And of course, creating!

During my year in review, it looks like I finished six quilts.
Merry Christmas SAL (top finished)

Hospital Sketches


Winnie the Pooh QAL

Oh My Stars!

Of course, there were a few miscellaneous finishes or near-finishes also.
Mini Wool Christmas SAL

Halloween Stars & Pumpkins

Patriotic Gameboard

Hope Quarantine QAL

PG Wool Mini Cushion

As is so true with my projects, some of these are still works in progress and will be looking forward to getting finished up this year (fingers crossed!).

Of course, Knitty Quilter also finished a few knitted pairs of socks. Wow! Surprised myself with four new pairs!


Destination Unknown KAL

Jeck Socks

Green Checkers

There was also this little project: Kitties for my Grandkitties!

2020 was a rough year for us health-wise. However, things are looking up for Fred & his kidney woes. His blood counts are good, his weight is near-normal, and he has gained and lost a doctor to keep his health in check. Dr. Aliperti, along with Dr. Chambers and Dr. White, did a fantastic job of getting him through the loss of his right kidney and overcoming infections. While we grew quite close with Dr. Aliperti, we look forward to saying goodbye to him and welcoming Dr. Purcell as his new nephrologist. Dr. Purcell will look after Fred's solo kidney and help us maintain the health of that organ. After all, we can't afford to lose that one!

So what will keep me occupied during 2021? I've got several projects that need finishing. I've got several projects that I would love to tackle. I've got several ideas floating around in my head that I'd like to explore. But all of that will have to wait until another post.

Until then, Happy New Year! Cheers to good health, peace, and prosperity!
