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

Yesterday I took one of my 'babies' to the sewing machine doc. She was having some trouble with sewing forward. Yikes, I am not so talented that I can sew much in reverse. She was my first Viking Husqvarna, I have loved her for 32 years and now I have to say good bye. She has given her all, mostly because she is so old that there are no replacement parts, apparently.

I was thinking about all the things we have made together, so many things. New curtains for a new house, two houses ago. Little girl clothes, little boy clothes, little girl clothes, prom dresses, quilts for children; mine and nieces and nephews. I started my Dear Jane quilt with her but it will be finished on another.

Am I being too melancholy over a sewing machine? I was surprised at my thoughts when I started thinking of all we have been through together.

Well time to pack her up and for me to move on to something a bit more fun.

Happy New Year to you all! I wish you all a wonderful  year filled with love of God, family, friends and fabric.

I am starting the New Year with a goal to get some of my many, too many, projects waiting for me to finish. This is my first project to complete. It is an I Spy quilt for my grandson. It has been waiting for two years for completion.
So what are you planning for 2013?
