Good bye 2015

It’s been awhile, a long while. But it’s a New Year and I can start over right? I recently read on Becky Goldsmith’s blog that she took 10 off from blogging, calling it an eternity in the blog world. Boy did I cringe! Not gonna say how long I took off, you can look it up, but WAY longer than 10 days.

Life got busy for me, then it was the holiday season so I made the decision to not even try to blog on any kind of regular basis until 2016, just being realistic. But I thought about it a LOT and feel like I’m ready to dive in now! And I’ve put it in print so that means I am now committed and accountable right?

What have I been doing that has kept me away? Lots of quilting, for me and others.

I had three of my quilts accepted to A Quilter’s Gathering in Manchester NH:

Purple Pinwheels

I also decided two weeks before Christmas was a great time to learn how to make decorated sugar cookies!

I found this great site that had great ideas and tips.

I have a lot planned for 2016- resolutions, projects, lectures, workshops…..looks like it’s going to be a very full year!
