|Probably my favorite finish of 2016|
- Stash Bee. I loved it! It was great to see how different all of our tastes are, and to make 1 block a month without a lot of commitment. It was a great way to try new things and just dip your toe in the water, so if you didn't like a technique or a block or a color combination, you weren't stuck with it for long. And I can't wait to dive into my pile of bookshelf blocks from my turn as queen and turn them into something fantastic!
- 2016 New Bloggers Blog Hop. This was a stretch for me, as the blog started as a way to just log my projects, but I was really glad I did it. I love the community aspect and that was the main thing I got out of the experience. My blog will never be something I can put a ton of time into or want to polish or be professional, but I did learn stuff and had a lot of fun.
- Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I really like the laid back nature of this challenge. People pretty much make it their own. And I love the butterflies that I made. I will end up with 2 quilts and a mini from my 16 blocks from the year. But I had trouble keeping up with the months. I have an idea for a block for 2017, but I haven't decided to commit yet.

- I occasionally linked up with Oh Scrap! hosted by Cynthia of Quilting is More Fun Than Housework. (Ain't that the truth!!!) And I linked up with Scraptastic Tuesday hosted by Leanne at She Can Quilt and Nicky at Mrs. Sew & Sow a few times as well.
Last December, I created a list of 12 projects to work on for 2016. It was never intended to be a "finish them all" list, just a place to start. I have finished 3 from the list and made signigicant progress on 2 more. One goal was about cleaning up, and while I didn't go through the spefici drawers written on the goal, I have done a lot of cleaning out and reorganizing in the sewing room, so I'm going to count that as 6 of 12 goals either completed or with significant progress.
Donated Quilts: I set a goal of 12 quilts made and donated to Project Linus. I made donated 12 kids quilts to the Charlotte chapter of Project Linus in 2016, and I also made a quilt for the Pulse project.
