2016 In Review

Written by , Posted in New Year Post, Uncategorized

It’s been a full robust year.  Many times I reflect on how fast the year has passed, but somehow 2016 seemed to go by in slow motion.  Maybe it’s because I have learned so many things that my perspective on life is so different from last January.  It almost seems like a different era.  Working on my small business has brought sanctifying lessons, exciting experiences, and a revised vision for the future in many different ways.

After sifting through photos and projects, I am even more motivated to continue to work harder, diligently and manage my time better. 

I did not make these two grey quilt tops below, but I finished them on the longarm quilting machine.

A quilt project for Cotton Berry Quilts.  Longarm Quilted by my Mother, Christa.

Digging into 18th century costumes for the first time.

A custom bridal cape for friend.

A little bit of upholstery.

Little girl’s dress in the process of being made.  This dress will show up in my Etsy shop.

Piecing quilts.

Studio Pictures.

Dresses made for The Tailorette Dress Shop.

A glimps at inventory.

There is one thing that is consistent after every year is learning to walk by faith and trust the Lord every step of the way.  There are ups and downs, but it is the tough times that shape and grow us.  I can say with confidence that I look forward to the hardships as well as the good times in the coming year.

Happy New Year!
