for those of you not on FB, I'll share this here as well. As an accountant, I love Excel almost as much as quilting. My current job is almost perfect because it's part time, all I do is play around in excel, pretty much set my own schedule, and don't have to supervise anyone.
Anyway, I keep an excel workbook of all my quilts and other projects. I was updating it to make sure I had added the recently done tops. And here is the pivot table of how I'm doing so far this year. A personal best and it's only September - 36 so far. All those donation quilts have been adding up. I've also been trying to use the patterns I've purchased over the last few years, doing pretty well. I only have four left and two of those I have kits cut out. the other two are Krista Moser tough ones - those are going to take some thought.
whoa, I just looked to see how many I've kept - that can't be right - 68? And my daughter has 15, my son 6. And 12 unfinished (not quilted), that does sound about right.
Wow! I have done 3 tops so far this year. I also sewed 3 garments.
yes, but how many miles have you driven! I've hardly left my house except for the AZ trip.
To be honest I completely lost my motivation due to my vertigo until around July. We moved and I was determined to set up a sewing space. Also this is the first time since DH went to Texas that all my sewing stuff is in one place. I am currently on a mission to go thru what I have and purge what I don't want, sew stashbusters from what I sort of like and organize the rest. This week I sorted 2 huge scrap bins by color. I also cut a quick kit. I will be cutting lots of fabric into kits or components. Not sure what I will do with all the tops made. Some for charity, some gifts and keep some. I will say that my taste in fabrics has changed over the years. I have found quite a few quick stashbusters online that will be fun to whip up.

I do have Facebook. What group ae you guys in?
Girl, you're a beast! I've only done prob a dozen and most of them are charity that were ufos to start with...
That's impressive. I am 15 right now. Not as many as wanted to have done but work gets in the way. LOL
I started a list of all the quilts I have made since 1994. Not near this many but still fun to look back and see how far we have come.
Keep up the good work!
I am in several different groups, an applique group, a LA group, Texas Quilters group. My quilting id is Deein Tex (clever, huh). I have my "real" name in there too but pretty much just use that for extended family & home town stuff. The quilting one is much more fun. come find me.
