The fountain is flowing!

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.

U(n) F(inished) O(bject)Challenge

leave a comment »

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!

Happy New Year!

leave a comment »

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!
