2020 At A Glance, January 1, 2021

Well 2020 has been quite the year.  Most found time to get in a whole lot of quilting.  I continued to work from home starting mid-March.  Me, an essential worker, went in to the  office once a week, but fortunately I was able to work from home the rest of the time.  It was a bit rocky from home, but eventually all things IT worked out and allowed me to smoothly work from my home office.  Needless to say not much extra time in the sewing room =^.^=

In this crazy year of stay-at-home directives from California I was able to complete 37 projects; which is up from four in 2019.  164 yards of cotton moved through my Pfaff Performance 5.0.  Yet another year of crazy "K" names. KavortKandlesKopernikus, Kweens, Kandi, Kolor Katchers, Koils, Klarchen, Kollective Kolors, and Karefree were names of my 2020 UFOs plus others you will see below.  Thanks to Google searches and my Sister for coming up with such fitting names.

Kollective Kolors

I was able to complete four of the 2019 UFOs along with all of the 2020 UFOs slated for completion.  Darn that I couldn't finish the last 2019 UFO that is Fit to Frame (still needs a "K" name).  My 2021 list is set and you can view it now on my blog (look for the tab at the top of the home page).  There are many wool projects in my UFO list this year.  Hopefully I can find time to work them.  Fit to Frame did get attention in 2020, just not enough to finish.

I participated in my guild's, Sunshine Quilt Guild, UFO Challenge too.  I made a charity quilt benefiting the YMCA's Battered Womens Program supporting Becky's House during the seven months of the membership year.  I also finished several of my Mom's UFOs and a couple of my orphan blocks projects that supported the same program.  Other than the 2020 UFOs listed above here's the other finishes that took place.  You can see them through the links if choose =^.^=

This first day of 2021 has me at Part 6 of Bonnie Hunter's 2019 Mystery, Grassy Creek.  My project will be called Krooked Kreek...get the "K" change up?  I can't resist a Bonnie Hunter Mystery =^.^=.  Appalachian Autumn and Winter Blues are already in my want to make queue!

As always I look forward to your help in naming my projects with the must "K"!  I close this year hoping there are more great finishes in 2021.  Happy New Year!
