Happy New Year!

Oh my, I must apologize for not being around for so long ... I had no idea it was since the beginning of November!!!  I don't know what has happened ... there has just been so much going on in my life and I have just not been my usual self.  My son is now in Michigan with his sweetheart and her family.  He left the middle of December, and is going to stay until the baby is born ... at least ... I hope they decide to move back here, but at this point, they may wind up living in Michigan.  My heart is broken, but I know it will heal.  Christmas this year was not the same ... it was the first Christmas spent without him.

I didn't do Christmas like I usually do this year and I decided that was okay.  I just put a few decorations up in the house as my heart wasn't really into it.  I can finally say that my son is engaged ... he proposed Christmas eve, and I am happy for the two of them.

I feel like I owe you so much more of an explanation for my absence ... I did miss my online friends and my routine.  My goal for the new year is to be happier ... I think I said that last year too.  I read a book the beginining of last year called The Happiness Project and I really liked it ... I plan on rereading the book.  I also have a plan to be more organized ... there are a couple of books I'm looking at to help me with that, and I will let you know which one I pick.  I also intend to get healthier ... I eat pretty well, but haven't been exercising as much as I would like to ... and I'm working on that too!

I have been keeping busy with my quilting.  Last year I took off December and January, but it was not to be this year.  I worked through Christmas, and am still sewing ... it does help to keep my mind and hands busy!

Okay, onto some pictures ... this is a quilt I did for a customer ... it's a baby quilt for her daughter ... isn't it cute?


Just did a little squiggly swirl with Glide thread in top and bobbin.
Did I show you this picture yet?  I saw this little dog dressed in this raincoat and I stopped the man to ask him where he had gotten the jacket ... actually, I thought it was a jacket that he had made for the dog, it just looked just like the ones we all had when we were kids!

Well I am happy to be back ... I hope some of you are still out there!  I'm anxious to hear if anyone has their own New Years ideas ... I don't like the word resolutions.  And have you all been working on your quilting over the holidays, or does it get put on the back burner?  Honestly, can you believe how fast time goes ... wow!!
