It's the time of year when we reflect back on the year and we look all around us and make decisions about how to do things better in our lives and with what is on the news every minute right now, it seems even more important to really think about how we live our lives. We got a card at work, the front said Seasons Greetings, OK, that annoys me a little but I look inside. It has one line of text. "Be Excellent to One Another" . My boss got a banner printed up to hang along his fence. He wanted to be politically correct, as everyone seems to be these days, so his sign, which is 3 ft x 18 ft reads "Happy Birthday Jesus" No one can complain about that message.
They say that whatever you do on New Years Day you will do for the rest of the year. I plan on doing some hand quilting that day, I can't imagine life without a needle and thread handy. There will be lists, as this is the time of year we feel an extra push to get organized and I could certainly use some of that. The lists will be all my projects under different headings, then I can cross them off as I work through them, move them along and get them to the "needs to be quilted" list. If I can do that with 3 tops in 2013, and take 3 of my "need to be quilted" tops off the current list, I'll be very satisfied with my achievement.
I'll be spending a week with my 78 yr young father in AZ, I couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate Christmas. Wishing each and every one of you a blessed Christmas full of family, good cheer and laughter. I look forward to another year of motivation, inspiration, and sharing with my blogging buddies.
I've shared a few blocks from my favorite Christmas quilt. It's the first one I made for myself and I hang it up every year.
