My Think Tank Is Full

I don't know about you but the last week of December is my think tank week.  I pray in thankfulness for the year that is leaving with all it's ups and downs...because, I was here to experience them.  And, I look forward to the adventure of a new year.  I never go into the new year with my Christmas decorations up...I know that for  great number of people the Christmas holiday extends into January...not for me.  I MUST have a clean slate when I start the new year and because we leaving for the Portland digs the Christmas decor came down.  I know I am weird because I love the take down as much at the put up, lol.

For those of you new to the Woolie blog we pick a "word" to live by for the year. Be thinking about your word...I know I have been testing out a couple this week and so far haven't wrapped my heart around one.  The new year also brings a slide show of the highlights of 2013.  

Until then here are a few photos to share with you.  

Robin's son who is an individual our country depends on (military man) sent this beautiful flower arrangement and amazing dipped strawberries for our shared Christmas dinner.  The only thing that would have made it perfect is if he and his fiance could have been here also!

My second cousin who I believe is going to be 9?? has a birthday the first week of January and so I decided on Christmas day that I needed to sew some pillow cases for her.  I am especially partial to the Dr. Seuss one. 

Since I will be looking out my picture window on the world in downtown Portland and my sewing room is in Sisters I started prepping hand stitching projects to take with me.  I so love Buttermilk Basin designs.

Have a wonderful weekend!  See you on Monday with a great 
QuiltWorks slide show!
