Without consciously choosing it, my word of the year for 2020 was Frenzy!
What I learned in 2020
The year started as every other year. I had been working from home since the beginning of December 2019, but had no idea at the time that in a few months everyone else would be doing the same!

As you can see, I spent a lot of hours working on this project during the holiday season. Chevy was, as always, hanging around. She slept through all that was going on at the cutting table.

to work on this project
I'm really hoping to post the completed quilt top by mid-January. I'm going for my third round of making this my One Monthly Goal - my January OMG is a finished quilt top!
In May I started working on the Pinwheels and Stars baby quilt during Free Motion Mavericks. I think that working consistently on one project brought some needed stability to my
quilting life. Of course now I'm at a part that I can't just fudge my way through, so it may take a little while to get back into it.

What I learned
- I'm quite happy to say that I reached my blogging goal, which was to write at least as many posts as last year. This is the last one, taking me to 68 for both 2019 and 2020!
- This post has been about what I learned, but here is my take-away:
- It's been a difficult year for everyone. I realise more than ever that self-care is important. You can't take care of others if you are not well yourself. I am physically fine but I will need to spend more time in 2021 taking care of my mental health.
I will be linking up to many fun parties, including the Best of 2020 Linky Party, hosted by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs.
