Hannah got all of her blocks back from this summer quilting round robin back in September, and we love them. She’d asked for brown and rainbows, and that is what she got. We haven’t had a chance to sew this quilt together yet, but we will. She’s been less interested in sewing this fall, but she did just ask me the other day if we could make something, so I think we’ll pull these blocks out soon.

Seriously, I am just finishing things left and right. LIKE A BOSS. I finished Maggie’s wedding quilt and got it in the mail (photos once it’s reached its destination). I finally mailed off a magazine quilt that had fallen through the cracks. I also mailed off a handmade gift for a new mom friend (again, photos later) that should’ve been delivered last month.

I think some of my friends wonder what I do all day now that I’m not teaching. I’ve heard cracks about all the naps I must take, yadda yadda yadda.

So, this was my day today (in bulleted list form):

April 16th was the 4th anniversary of this blog, but once again I completely forgot about it. This year I had a good excuse, though, what with this whole situation. But I’ve been feeling sentimental and nostalgic lately and needed a reason to look back through the whole history of this blog. When I started The Orange Room we’d just bought the house 5 months before and been married just shy of a year (next Saturay it’ll be 5 years!). I was still working in a public library, and there was no Hannah. Much has changed. So I started a new project.

I had a surprisingly good crafting year. In my head I’ve been thinking all through 2011 that I haven’t been nearly as crafty as 2010, but I’ve actually made more quilts this year. Fewer small projects, but that’s because quilts take longer. Plus, let’s not kid ourselves. Pregnancy wore me out, I spent most of the summer asleep. So all in all, it’s been a pretty darn good year.

This is a new type of post for me, but I think I need this to get focused for the coming year. It always helps me to see what I’ve accomplished and pace myself in the future. Here is a list of all the things I’ve made/decorated this year:
