Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to one and all. I wish you all a wonderful new year of sewing and quilting ideas and opportunities. New ideas so we can express our creativity, generosity and love of the craft in new undiscovered ways. And new opportunities to use all those new ideas to provide for family, friends, those in need and for our personal pleasure.

So how or what are you looking forward to in your creating this coming year?

I am personally looking forward to decreasing my stash by blessing some of the babies in our ever growing family, by continuing my pattern making/development skills, and creating with abandon.

Looking forward to a blessed year for all....

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

For some odd reason I love to sew the week between Christmas and New Years. It is not like I have not sewn many things for Christmas, I have, but somewhere deep down I get this new bud growing that just has to make/create at this time. Maybe it is so enjoyable because there are no deadlines. It is just for the joy and pleasure of creating. I usually finish all that I start during this time as well. An added bonus!

So what are you doing this week just for the sheer joy of it? And will it include time with your sewing machine?

Happy New Years' week,

Where has the time gone? It is flying by so quickly which makes it hard to savor the holidays. Something I would prefer to do. So how do you keep your holidays from becoming just a rat race? I would love to hear from you.

Today I am spending some time finishing up two new Christmas stockings, one for each new grandbaby. I will also be putting binding on a jungle themed baby quilt.

Savor the day, it is a gift from God,
