2022 Review and Looking Ahead to 2023


What a wild and wonderful year 2022 was! (read all about 20-21 here for comparison!)

Last year saw so many fun events and amazing surprises and I feel like 2023 is going to be even better.  The highlight of the year was obviously saying YES to the most amazing man! We are planning a beach wedding in the fall with our kids and their families. It will be so good to combine this family of 5 kids and all their people. Truly the biggest blessing of all is the love we have for each other and every minute we get to spend together.

We also got to celebrate the marriage of Chris's oldest daughter and the engagement of my daughter. Love was truly in the air in 2022! We also spent loads of time on the road going to see the grandbaby and visiting my mom. 

There were teaching trips to Florida (x 3) and South Carolina and New York and Alabama. There were fun trips to Savannah and a cruise! There were lots of weekend adventures including hiking and exploring parts of Georgia and Tennessee. 

There was a new fabric line and lots of longarming and a sew along and some fun quilty events and exchanges with friends. There were even some new techniques to explore that turned out to be so fun I'm adding them to the classes I teach.

Speaking of teaching...

2023 will see trips to Arkansas and Indiana as well as South Carolina and several parts of Georgia. I have plenty of dates available to add your guild or group to my travel schedule. Please contact me if you have any questions!
