Wow, I can't believe another year is already over! So much happened in 2011! I don't even know where to begin! I graduated from college, Michael got accepted into graduate school, we moved to Wisconsin, I taught at Sewing Summit, made some wonderful friends! It's been a crazy year of big changes and opportunities! I am looking forward to what 2012 will bring!

I am very happy to have completed another Project 365! For those who aren't familiar with it, you take a photo a day, every day for a year! This is the second year I have completed it and it was still just as fun! I had one random day in November that only had an Instagram photo, but that's okay.  I hope to get them printed soon! You can see my last Project 365 here.

And of course, LOTS of George bunny! It was the year of the rabbit after all! I had no choice! ;)

I love the possibilities that a new year bring. It's like a second chance! I have a lot of goals for 2012, crafty and otherwise. I hope to share a few as well as kick off our Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month soon! For now, I'm taking off for a few days to enjoy family and make the drive back to Wisconsin!

Until next year! Thank you for all of your love and support this past year! It really means a lot to me!

Happy New Year!

Ack! How could I forget to mention: George! I will be honest here. I don't really...okay, I'm scared of rabbits. They freak me out. George is too cute though. I'm glad I've kept visiting and even started to look forward to photos of George. :)

I've enjoyed reading your blog and all the things you create. However, what I like best, (to be perfectly honest, teehee) is seeing the photos of George and what he's up to! Really it was all your wonderful project that caught my eye and George is a bonus!

Michelle @ the quilted tortoise said...

I LOVE George and I love seeing photos of him! My husband, however, is never as excited when I say "ooh there's a photo of George today!".

Your work is gorgeous Jeni, look forward to seeing what you share with us in 2012!

Wow, Jeni! You created so much this past year. I was so thrilled to meet you in October, and I always enjoy coming to your space! Happy new year to you, Michael and of course, George!

Kaye Prince said...

Holy wow lady! You sure got a lot accomplished this year! Those pictures of George are way too cute, and I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for this year!

molly::applecyder said...

I love how George is so well represented in your 365. Your finishes are impressive--not because of volume but because of the beauty and professionalism of each finished product. Happy 2012!

Christina Gilman said...

So prolific! Well done!

Thought you might want to know that I used your drawstring bag tutorial *a lot* when assembling Christmas presents. I just posted about the bags and their contents on my site, www.dolcideleria.com.

Sigrun said...

Hi Jeni, loved the idea of "project 365", so I started my own one on New Years Day. Have to get used to it still, though - forgot to take a picture as soon as the 4th... Thanks for idea!
And the HST-block-tutorials sound fantastic, thanks you!
Happy New Year! Sigrun

Hi Jeni I am reading your blog from the beginning and have gotten this far. I found you by way of Hyacinth and "The Art of Choosing". Kind of slow reading right now - busy with Christmas preparations. I love your projects and all the color. I will be working my way through 2012 to the present. Have a great Christmas with you family and cute little George. N
