what do you do when you have a cold?

...you find a project to work on of course! This is a 12 inch quilt square I created to send in for the PW Gathering in Louisville in July. My first attempt at an "art quilt" of sorts. The teapot represents God, pouring out His love into all the little teacups..... those are the women. Notice they are all different? Just like us. It's not perfect but I had fun doing it & it helped me forget my sniffles for a while.

While I was quilting I was listening to podcasts. My sweetie bought me a fabulous radio for Christmas... it's a big job shop radio from Home Depot, indistructible (if you know me, you know that is a great idea!) & I can hook my ipod up to it... So I was catching up on podcasts, listening to Annie Smith & I hear my name! I won a book! & she announced it on the podcast... I was so excited.

Looking forward....

Well it's almost 2009..... I can't help but think about making some resolutions (I know it's silly, who keeps those things anyways?). What are you resolving to do in the new year? Of course, the usual ones come to mind.... the old weight loss goal is always lurking there. But maybe I will try something new next year? I am thinking about trying to write up some of my design patterns... getting back to sewing clothes maybe? & maybe doing something new with my music... just some ideas I have. Oh, & then there's the domestic todo list hubby & I created today. Yikes, that could take up ALL of my time if I let it!

Whatever your dreams & goals are, I wish you much happiness in the new year!

Bring it on!

Well, my shopping & wrapping are DONE! I don't know what to do with myself.... do I start a new sewing project the week before Christmas? Hmmm possibility! I will be enjoying time with Leigh Anne who arrived home from Arizona last night... maybe I'll just goof off with her for a week or so! Merry Christmas!

Deck the halls

Can you believe it's almost Christmas? I love when the decorating is done, Christmas CDs playing through the house... it makes me smile! I am thinking maybe we need new, bigger stockings next year, what do you think? These look so tiny to me all of a sudden....

This year we decided to draw names for stocking filling. It's fun, this way I don't know everything that will be opened! I hope all the santas remember who they have!
