Better late than never, I suppose. I barely posted at all last year, a mere 28 times! And 12 of those were monthly pics, so only 16 other posts? Actually that is more than I would have thought. Anyhoo, I’m going to try to post more in 2023. (For context, in 2014 I posted 342 times.)
We were in the middle of that Omicron wave so my birthday was low key. Obviously that’s the only important day in January. But it was a lovely day anyway, sitting outside with friends and drinking margaritas and eating king cake.
Also I got a new sewing machine. Love.
I took an amazing jeans making class from the inimitable Lladybird. It wasn’t just the sewing tips but also the camaraderie from other sewists and just being around happy people that was so lovely.
Mardi Gras. Parades came back!
Technically Mardi Gras Day was in March.
I found a really cute video of Miles that I could watch one million times in a row.
I visited Kiki after her mom passed away. I was happy to see her, but not happy why.
I went to visit Kiki again to help with her mom’s memorial celebration. We cooked a lot of fancy food.
The boys went to a dance.
The boys finished 8th grade, and had their last day at Lycee Francais. The end of an era!
Oh, and they all got Covid, one by one. George and I did not, somehow.
We got a new oven.
We went to Virginia! I stayed with Kiki, the boys went to Camp Aunt Jenny, and we all had a great time. (Kiki and I also went to NYC.)
The boys started high school. And competitive soccer again.
I got a tattoo.
My brother and Ellie came to town.
I made a coat, it’s beautiful.
I gave out candy on Halloween for the first time. (with Steph)
Went to Denver for my first work trip since January 2020.
Got another tattoo.
Took another sewing workshop with Lauren.
My babies turned 15.
We went to the Dominican Republic.
I did sew a lot this year, but I didn’t always blog about it. Here are some more things I made:
It was a bigger year for quilts than I would have thought!
