2020 Review

 The year 2020 certainly didn't play out like any of us expected.
Back in January, no one knew that we would be at home
way more than any of us would like, 
or that so many people would get sick and/or die from a virus,
or that so many would lose their jobs,
or that the world economy would take such a hit.

Thankfully, my family has remained healthy and
has been able to carry on without many set backs.

For me, one good outcome to this pandemic and the
isolation that came with it, is the amount of time I was able to spend in my
Hidey Hole.

Don't get me wrong... I would have much rather been out and about
amongst the people, visiting family and friends, 
going to church in person, eating in restaurants, going to shows, and
screaming at basketball games and other sporting events.
 But, since I was home, and have all of this fabric and unfinished projects,
I made use of the time.
Here is a recap of my Hidey Hole 2020:

These quilts were all completed in the first half of the year.
Several had been started previous to 2020 and were lingering.
Three were kits that had been in my cabinet for Way too long!

These quilts were finished in the second half of 2020.
During the second half of 2020 my time was taken up with
making baby things for my granddaughter, who was born Dec. 27th!

These were a lot of the "other things" I made this year.

I pray that 2021 is much easier for everyone
and that we can return to some kind of normal.
In the meantime, may your creative side bring you some 
peace and serenity.

Happy Creating!

You really accomplished so many great finishes this year. I saw a lot of my favorites in there, but I'll bet your favorites involved sewing for that new granddaughter. Have a wonderful new year, Ramona.

Wowza!!! You really did make use of that extra sewing time. So many beautiful projects.

Definitely unprecedented and unexpected. We will remember 2020 with those words. At the same time there have been some unprecedented and unexpected examples of joy and creativity - some right here on your blog. I love the KF 3-d quilt and the cute appliqued birds. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year 2021!!!

Oh my goodness, hiding away in your hidey hole has caused to make so many gorgeous pretties. You astound me as to what you have achieved in this rather difficult year.
