Good Bye 2016!


First off I want to wish my grandson, Griffin a very happy 12th birthday! He is now taller than me and I am sure his brother is not far behind!
This is my last quilt of 2016 and I am very happy with the way it turned out. It was not the original plan and I am glad I didn't settle for what would have been a pretty predictable quilt. I am thinking this might be a good blueprint for 2017? Work on things until they make you happy, even if they aren't quilt related?


We all can relate to this.....

but maybe also slow down a bit to enjoy what is super important?


because those times are fleeting....................................yo Adrian!


I would like to thank all of you who take the time out of your day to read my posts. I don't know what happened in December but I had almost 30,000 hits! The month before was 11,000, so I am surprised but glad for the responses to my posts.
Here's to another new year of sewing and friendship. New goals (no resolutions) and achievements.
Happy New Year friends!

  10. Working on things that make us happy should be all of our goals. Your trees are truly interesting and the curved pieces add a softness to the scene. I admire your work.
