2013 Finishes and other Fabulous Things

Vacation 2013

After all the UFO shenanigans going on around here, I really wanted to share some of the 2013 things that happened completely apart from my ever-growing to do list.

It was a big year filled with lots of projects, oodles of new patterns, vacation, graduation, college and the loss of a special furry loved one.

Here are a few photos to share some of my 2013 with you!

Doctor Who Quilt 2013

In 2013, I organized and designed for The Doctor Who Quilt Along on Fandom in Stitches.

This is the Doctor Who quilt I made for my daughter to take to college. This project was a balm to my aching mommy heart.

Tackett, 1997 - 2013

Last, but not least, a bittersweet end. We said goodbye to Tackett, the TTMT kitty, in June.  He was my best furry friend and I miss him dearly.
