Thoughts for Thursday

We have been busy bees around here and are playing catch up...Our little grandson is turning 5 this week and it is hard to believe how much time has passed.  My little minion is growing up :)

I have been chipping away at January goals and am pleased with my accomplishments and am almost ready to think about Februarys goals.  I have one left for January...we'll see if I get it done.  The interesting thing is I am learning a lot about myself with this 2017 goal setting.  It seems for the first time in my life I have a growing understanding about realistic goal setting.  And, when I set realistic goals I am more successful. And, when I am more successful I feel better about myself.  hummm I can just see the blossoming idea on how this may affect other aspects of my life!  Lots to think about.

We finally have had a reprieve from the snow...enough so that I was able to make it to the Woolie gathering at QuiltWorks in Bend.  It had been over a month since this group was able to get together and so there was lots of catching up to do.  I am inspired by these woman and I hope you are encouraged to spend some time stitching.

  4. They sure do grow up fast, Nick is going to be 4 this spring.
    Lots of wonderful projects, I still need to finish my buttermilk bomb.


  5. I love that quote . . . how true:)

  6. Sounds very true, when I botch up something, it makes Me feel like a rotten failure. I sometimes hold back from setting a goal, just because it seems to be to hard to try. I need to work on this one!
    I love the one in the top right corner best on your box,just so appealing!

  7. I did not know QuiltWorks has such a club sounds very cool. I like that quote you posted - that is true!

  8. I can sure relate to your quote! I started a new job- from being home to full-time plus! A rest is what I need today!! Very fun quilting pictures! Can you please tell me more about the O with the crow? Do you know the pattern name? Thank you and have a wonderful day! :)
