Here are the 36 blocks sewn together. I also sewed together the 2 flying geese rows. Enough for tonight.

Cleaned up my sewing room last night. It has its rewards. A clean slate with which to start my 2013 sewing. I should have taken before and after pictures to encourage such clean-up in the future, but it was so scary. Now my cutting and sewing tables are both clean, and in-work projects are corralled and organized.
First thing I did was zigzag the raw edges of my Winter Welcome quilt down. Every year when I hang it, something pops off. I didn't make it, but I love it. The Wonder Under product is very stiff on mine. I don't have a pic of mine, but this is one I made for my daughter, Emily, after procuring the pattern myself:

No pictures in this post, just a recap of 2012 projects for my own curiosity's sake.
This year I made 45 quilted items.
28 were gifts.
1 has no home yet.
2 were made to sell.
14 were for my own family here at the Parker Ranchero.
Of the 14 things I made for us, 3 of them were my "Count On It" twelve-inch square calendar blocks. Three were sets of pillow shams. One was my shower curtain. Two were hand quilted (Grandmother's Flower Garden wallhanging and Hearts and Gizzards bed quilts).
I was surprised at all the gifts I made. I've been a busy bee in that department at least!
It's been a while since I've had some good, long sewing time. I look forward to that soon. I need to do a deep clean of my cutting table and sewing table. They both runneth over with scraps.
