Hello Friends, LOOOOOONG time no chat! Clearly I have been naughty and not nice! :( I trust that you had a blessed holiday season, and are feeling great this new year! I shall try to update you with what’s gone on since we chatted last…
Day in Life
We went straight into Christmas mode after Thanskgiving – with Christmas programs in various forms. My mother also got to spent the entire month of December 2017 and Christmas with my family. It was her first winter and Christmas in America, ever! So, we packed in quite a bit in 4 short weeks to make Christmas memorable for my Mom.
With Miss Baby being older and still VERY MUCH a Christmas girl, we had so much fun preparing and celebrating for Christmas this past year! And she is already planning for our next Christmas!
I also worked through the holidays whenever I could so that I didn’t fall too far behind on work. That’s why I have been silent on the blog.
NEW YEAR —
This year is already shaping up to be a busy year.
#1. So far, I have all my work-related travel plans filled for this year.
#2. I have also been using the month of December last year to organize the various aspects of my life. I started cleaning out closets etc, and more importantly, pulling out unfinished projects from years past to work on them this year…. namely, I have my Spring on Bleecker Street that fell by the wayside when life became too busy. I wonder how your Spring on Bleecker Street is coming along if you have been sewing with me…
I intend to show you progress of the various UFO’s as the year goes along!
SO — ARE YOU MAKING ANY NEW QUILTING PLANS THIS NEW YEAR?
#3. I will also be sharing about my new book Stitching Pathways. I received back my quilts made for the book, and I am excited to share about the quilts with you!
#4. There are more developments that I will be sharing soon! And I definitely look forward to sharing our quilting journey together in 2018.
Unfinished business from 2017
So, I never did announce the winner for the giveaway for these books…. I am happy to announce that Gwynette of NWA is the winner! Gwynette – if you could email me your address, I will ship the books to you at no cost to you!!
