I’mThankful

leave a comment »

A few years ago, you wrote a daily entry for a month about things you which you were thankful. That might be a good way for me to resurrect our blog.  In addition, I read an article that reported that writing about things that made you happy increased your happiness. (Who would have guessed?)

So today I’m thankful that my daughter started a blog that allowed me to write happy things.

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:
