Last year was the year of running. Well, I only ran one marathon and one half marathon, but to be fair, I had never run a half marathon and the most I had ever run before was likely less than 12 miles at one time.
|Me in front of the marathon route at Nike Town|
|My number for the San Francisco Nike Women's marathon|
|Monterey Half Marathon with my brother. I was having a good time. HEY, it wasn't 26.2 miles, my feet had healed from the mass quantities of blisters that I had built during the marathon the previous month. I was just happy to be running again.|
This year is going to be my year of sewing!! I have already challenged myself to use up my stash. Now I have challenged myself to complete one quilt per month at least! So far so good! I have finished the green modified-first-quilt-a-long (Fat Quarterly) that I ever participated in online. So this will be my #1 finish for 2011.
I have also found an abundance of quilt-a-longs!! I am sooo incredibly happy to find online support and more importantly I am excited about all of the inspiration I keep seeing and all of the tricks and reminders that I keep stumbling upon: pure awesomeness!!!
1.) modified Fat Quarterly Quilt-A-Long (Quilted, bound, complete)
2.) Postage Stamp Quilt-A-Long (Top:complete, dropped off with long-arm quilter!!)
3.) Socken Quilt-A-Long (in progress!)
4.)....Considering the Single Girl Quilt-A-Long - I mean why not, right?? Found out about it on Nova's blog. Looks awesome and lord knows I need the inspiration, support, and hand-holding ;) This could be the perfect wedding gift for my brother and his wifey-to-be!! Pretty excited about this one!!!
