Review of 2019

Another year is over and it has been a hell of a year. I gave birth to Josh on 18th January and it's been a crazy ride since then - we've had loads of great family times, exploring the local National Trust and English Heritage properties and venturing further afield too. I can't believe that Josh will be a year old in just a few weeks time. Jess started nursery and Mia continues to love school and really excel at everything. I went back to work in June, and whilst it's been hard work juggling everything, with more travel that I was expecting, I still love my job and I'm looking forward to the challenges of 2020.

I've also fitted in some sewing - people keep asking how I do it but the reality is that if I didn't do I would be incredibly unhappy - it's what keeps me balanced day to day and whilst on maternity leave it gave a me a focus that wasn't just feed, change nappies, sleep, change nappies, feed.... whilst I love being a mother and I love my kids, I have to have Jennie-time too.

Here are the quilts I've finished this year.







 Hidden Agenda (the quiet side)



I also made lots and lots of smaller projects: pouches, cushions, tubs....





And then I worked on lots of projects which are still Works in Progress: maybe they'll appear as a finish in 2020....




Clearly when I prepared those final mosaics, I didn't realise I'd picked the same picture twice for the Summer Sampler (2018 version), nor did I expect to finish the Summer Sampler, which crept in under the wire.

Happy New Year - may 2020 be excellent!
