Last year was a kind of blur. It started out normal but quickly changed into the year from hell. I hated being away from my family and my sewing/quilting peeps. Both of my guilds, Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild and Long Island Modern Quilt Guild, stopped in person meetings as of March. In June, our Tuesday night North Fork Quilters group decided to meet out in the parking lot of the rec center we normally met in. We were all so happy to actually see each other. Eventually both guilds transitioned to Zoom meetings but it wasn't the same.
I kept sewing and managed to get a lot of work done on the longarm. Practice, practice ,practice! I even took some of my stimulus dollars and purchased rear handles for my Simply Sixteen. Now I'm working with pantographs and I love it.
Anyway, in person classes are starting in local quilt shops and this makes me happy. Are we possibly ready to be normal again? I know I am. Here's things I've completed during 2020.
