Happy New Year!!!
For HH, myself and Enzo this past year has been like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disneyland. Building a new home, moving x 2 and the normal work and travel has been amazing. My word for 2013 was Embrace and boy did I ever! 2012's word was Grace and it truly helped me make passage through those challenging waters. I have thought long and hard and the word that will serve as my touchstone will be Quiet. How do I think this word will serve me? or how I will serve the word? I am taking "Grace" and "Embrace" and rolling them into a cookie sprinkled with "quiet"...I enjoy the adventuresome life but am going to live it with a quiet soul. Leaving behind all the historic voices that yada, yada in my brain. I am going to sew with a quiet soul that embraces all that I love. I hope you will join me in 2014...I extend a gentle hand to you to come along and enjoy this quilting life journey.
The slide show today is a reflecting of 2013...not all that happened but a snippet of life and the joys it brought. It is filled with all that I loved about 2013. It may not be interesting to all since quilting is only a small fraction but I do believe that my quilting is enriched by my life. It is long...so if you venture in, bring a cup of coffee!
I will be taking the rest of the week off and be back here on Jan. 6th!
