2012 Recap and a Giveaway Winner!

The day of reckoning has come.  I must recap how much I completed during the last 100 days of 2012 (yes, I’m that late to the 2012 recap party)!

But first: in my original 100 Day Hustle post, I mentioned that I would give away a handmade something to the person who guessed the number of projects I would complete from my list.  Mina, Catherine, Debra and Chelsea all guessed correctly, so here’s how I broke the tie.  Using this random letter generator, I clicked until I got the starting letter of one of these lovely ladies’ names.  M was the first one to pop up, so congrats to you, Mina!  I’ve e-mailed you to get your address so I can send this little wine tote your way (tutorial to follow in the next couple weeks):

Now for the 100-day recap.


  1. Custom sewing table
  2. Quilt and bind Octagonal Orbs top, send it to its new home
  3. Sew three six makeup pouches for sweet friends
  4. Pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap
  5. Alpine Wonderland Christmas quilt (a quilted table runner counts in my book!).


  1. Summerlove Converging Corners quilt
  2. Finish Bella throw pillows for my couches
  3. Twin boy quilts for a sweet friend’s new family members
  4. Warm and wintery Washi Dress from this Loulouthi flannel print

I also completed a few projects that weren’t on my list, so I personally feel I should get bonus points for those.  Here’s a collage of all my 2012 sews (not including my holiday swap ornament, because I remembered it too late so adding it would’ve meant a total collage reworking).

Did I mention I sewed over 50 bee blocks?  Here those are as well:

2012 was crafty fun but here’s to an even better 2013!
