2021 At A Glance, January 1, 2022

Once again we have all experienced a year of COVID.  How many masks have you made to get through this pandemic that never seems to go away.  I started back to work full time at our campus in October.  It is not so fun getting up early n the morning, but I'd rather be in the office. 

I completed 20 projects this year; which is down quite a bit from last year.  206 yards of cotton moved under my needle with a new Pfaff Performance Icon.  As you know I come up with some crazy names for my projects with help from family and friends.  Kreepy Kompanions, Kai, Koyo, and Kofi are just a few from 2021.


I fell short in finishing my 2021 UFOs.  Four remain to complete along with the new 12 that make up the 2022 UFO List.  You can view it now on my blog (look for the tab at the top of the home page).  The 2019 UFO finished that I am calling Komplex Kontents.  I love it!

Komplex Kontents

I participated in my guild's charity projects benefiting the YMCA's Battered Womens Program supporting Becky's House and each of the monthly BOMs.  I even won in October with the cute Punkin' Patch block designed by Bonnie Hunter.  I made more projects that were not on my 2021 UFO List, which is in part why four remain unfinished.  Other than the projects I have already shared above here are the other finishes that took place.  You can see them through the links if you choose =^.^=

Used YTD: 209.25 yards (2020, 160 yards)
Purchased YTD: 183.25 yards (2020, 23.75 yards)
Net used in 2021: 25.5 yards (2020, 132.5 yards)

This first day of 2022 has me at Part 3 of Bonnie Hunter's 2021 Mystery, Rhododendron Trail and she has already released through Part 6.  I will be calling this one Kyushu where a particular orange rhododendron flower can be found.  I changed out the suggested pink for orange.  As you have heard before I can't resist a Bonnie Hunter Mystery!

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 2022.  Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and yours. Kyushu, a real name, a long time ago I had a friend who was living there, I think her husband was in the USA air Force stationed there.And our host daughter, her younger sister went there from Osaka, to study. Love the Kats, they are indeed crazy.

Beautiful quilts (or Kilts? ;)) )
Happy New Year!

You make so many great quilts, but of the ones shared here, Kofi really captures my heart. I am a sucker for a black background, and the shading in the blades is SO effective!

Have to agree with Janet O I love Kofi. Just bounces out for one’s attention. Your quilts are so outstanding. I wish all would read your blogs they are so interesting
