Changes in my quilting

My quilting has changed over the years, as it should....
I decided to take the phone camera and snap some photos to show the changes.
Daughter V has been cleaning out her room and brought this wallhanging up to me.
I made this alot of years ago when she was a little one and lived for Soccer. Of course, as girl's grow up, she discovered boys, and soccer went out the window.
I use to try and document every little thing in fabric...no anymore!
I have also entered a couple of quilts each year in our Davis County Fair. At first, I was really scared to try and compete, and the last few years I have entered out of habit. I'm not sure I'm going to enter anything this year.

I have been pretty good in keeping control of my sewing piles....not anymore. The three white bags in the photo are quilts that have been waiting for binding for months...months, people! I need to get it together!

I have purchased a new planner for the year and am going to set my goals...I don't wait until New Years Eve. So much to do, so little time........

Random photos

We've so busy the last month. Just some of the activities of our family: vacation, Alaska Cruise, son & his daughters moving in with us, work and all the general Summer activities. I loaded a few random photos to share....
