Finishes and looking back

I have been keeping track of how much quilting thread I use - the cotton only not the rayon Sulky - for the last couple of years to gauge if I have accomplished anything or not. At the end of 2010 I estimated I had 111,000 yards of quilting thread. I bought another 19,200 yards during the year so that is a grand total of 130,200 yards. I took pictures and counted what I have on hand and I estimate it to be 96,100 yards. Than means I used 34,100 yards in 2011. Here are the pictures.

I finished the binding on the two baby quilts.

I post pictures of the dutch wax flag quilt as soon as I can hang the quilt to take the pictures.

I spent Sunday visiting the twins.

After I got home from visiting I had a voice mail to call my quilting buddy, Peg, who lives an hour away. I had just talked to her and her husband on New Year's eve so it was strange that she called me. We usually talk about every 2 to 3 weeks. She called to let me know her husband, Russell, died in his sleep. He was only 52. Russell was such a charater and I will miss him. Do you watch American Pickers? He looked just like Frank on that show. RIP Russell.

It look like you put the hurt to the gray thread! I'm very sorry to hear about your friend.
