Hi! Mike’s company recently put this film together. I had no idea that this happened – did you?
Neil gave me this fountain for Christmas. (I missed my elephant fountain from Charro Lane. It was too large to move here.)
I hope the video works. I uploaded this to YouTube, as you suggested.
My quilting group that meets Tuesdays at Judy’s house is doing a ufo challenge this year.We are choosing 6 items we want to complete this year. Every two months we reveal a complete ufo. To make it exciting, we are each putting 12 dollars into a pot. Each time we comlete a project we receive one dollar back. At the end of the year we will draw for the remaining money in the pot.
Here are my projects:
I am happy to be so encouraged to complete some well “aged projects” that I still really like.
I’m almost ready to tell you that I’ve been blogging. How many days to make a new habit? Its actually two habits- blogging AND sewing.
This is my completed table runner:
Mom also finished a table runner. It is in her current favorite colors- black and white.
Two Christmas presents ready for next year!
I’ve heard that doing things you enjoy on New Year’s day set the tone for the year. So instead of making resolutions today, I took time to do things I love.
I sang Happy Birthday to Neil with my favorite skypers – Dara, Mike, and Julian!
While on skype, Neil and I were able to wish Dara and Mike a Happy Anniversary!
I planned a new garden that will feature the fountain that Neil gave me for Christmas.
I bought some flowers that will be planted in the fountain garden. (We also bought mulch and edging.)
I did a little sewing. I’m finishing a Christmas table runner. Talk about early…Christmas isn’t for 11 months!
Wow, this is going to be a great year!
