A New Year


I am not one who is big on New Year’s Resolutions, but this year I made one.  Drink more water.  I know, right?!?!  So simple!  I can do this! Actually it is more difficult than it seems and yesterday I already fell down hard with it so today is a new day!  (Insert satirical snort here.) No seriously, see I have my water glass on my desk and everything.  I already have drank almost all of it.  I find I drink from a straw cup better than a glass.


I even had a healthy, natural smoothy for breakfast with my coffee.  You will also be proud to know I am making my own coffee creamers instead of buying the chemically (is that a word?) store bought ones.


So I guess my New Year Resolution is a little more involved than drink more water, but I don’t want to set myself up for failure.  SO, drink more water is what it will be. I even sent my sister a care package!


Yes, you are seeing right, those are popcorn balls!  My husband makes great ones and she puts in her order every year.  Or maybe she has a standing order?  Well anyway, she gets popcorn ball care packages.

I am working on a quilt for the local Quilts for Cancer group here.  Yes, it is a Healing Quilt.  Someone had donated this fabric panel (like 6 yards!!!!) and I love it, so I went and got some coordinates to go with it.  It is no longer in production or for sale so I could no longer buy the coordinating fabrics so I improvised.

Anyway……..I was worried about this grunge not blending well because of the highlight color being a purple.


Until I sewed it on………..


Can you say never mind???  LOL!

I plan on being ever more present in my blogging again this year as I kick off a new venture company.  Stay tuned here and my facebook page to keep abreast (snort) of what is coming up!


Love all of you guys!  Can’t wait for this New Year, bring on 2019!!
