I've been reading lots of blogs the last few days with round ups of their year. As I was thinking about how creative I had been over the last year I wasn't coming up with much. Then as I was looking back on some of my posts I realized that hey! I did actually accomplish something this year and besides that I took 5 college classes and managed to get A's in every one. It's been a year full of challenges and change. My daughter graduated from college in May and moved to Pittsburgh in October and in November my husband was forced into an early retirement!
This year I managed to do the following:
I made two table runners - one was a wedding gift for the daughter of one of my wild thread friends Dian and the other one was a fall runner that that I had wanted to make last year! I made a cute pin cushion as a gift for my friend Chris, one baby quilt for the daughter of one of my mom's friends, and six mug rugs as gifts for my aunts. I made a queen size quilt for my daughter as a graduation present that includes blocks made by my friends in my quilting group. I made a 'thankful' quilted picture, painted a tree for my family room wall, made a design wall for my new sewing room, started on a Snoopy quilt for my good friend Melanie, and FINALLY added my sweet daughter in love Megan to our Snowman family.
Praying that you have a blessed new year filled with all the things that make you happy. Make time for the things that matter: family, friends, neighbors, and the strangers you meet along life's way. Love deeply, forgive quickly, laugh often, be kind and gracious, and pray for others.
