I had so much fun sewing for my granddaughter this year. I hope to sew for her for years and years to come.

Over the New Year, my husband and I were in Colorado with all our kids. We had such a wonderful time all being together and having a late Christmas celebration.
|The whole gang.|
My husband told me recently that this is his very least favorite time of year. (He is a golfer!) It is cold and dreary out and he misses his golf. I can just imagine what it is like. I would hate it if I couldn't quilt for 3-4 months! My reply to him is that this is one of my favorite times of year for the same reason! (Don't get me wrong....I love, love, love SUMMER!!) I love it that the weather is now cold and dreary! All I want to do is stay in, hibernate in my sewing room or snuggle under a warm quilt with one of my hand projects. I'd better get busy....I have a lot of projects to start and finish before summer comes! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!
