We made a Ginny calendar for Christmas and I've put the photos up on flickr for you to see. A neat thing about having a January baby is how nicely their growth fits into the cycle of a year. It was so fun to sort through our (literally) thousands of photos from 2011 and choose exemplary ones for each month. You can click through to see them full sized.
The last photo I doctored up and used as our Christmas card. There's pretty much no point in naming your daughter Virginia if you don't do something like this.
I got a modest amount of sewing done this year, kick started by a weekend in Lake Arrowhead for the LAMQG retreat, just six weeks after Ginny was born. It was such a great trip and an amazing way for me to start working my way out of the new baby fog.
Although there was an acceptable amount of sewing happening there was a pitiful lack of blogging. I still want to share a lot of what I made last year in detail but we'll see if that happens. You know how it is. I was going to share some photos in this post but I don't even have pictures of a lot of what I made this year! Part of that's due to busyness, part just because I've made quite a few tops that have yet to be quilted. The next guild retreat is coming up in a couple of weeks and I hope it will get me in the groove early this year. I've never been one for resolutions but I really want 2012 to bring much more creative energy and the time to share it with you.
Happy New Year!
