When I was a child, I'd think about how old I would be in
certain years and think...
"Wow! When it's 2000 I'll be 40 years old!
THAT is old!"
Here I am... 55 at the start of 2016 and
first of all, I am thankful to be here,
second of all... I don't feel old at all.
What did I know when I was young?
I am not one to make resolutions,
mainly because when I have, they have lasted
all of a day, or maybe a week. :)
I do hope to be more aware...
more aware of what I do with my time,
more aware of what I do with my actions,
more aware of the needs of others,
more aware of what my body and spirit need,
and more aware of what I can do to make life easier
for my family, for others and for me.
Happy 2016 everyone!
Yesterday I spent some time in my Hidey Hole
working on the last sections of the "Gravity" quilt.
These are taking much longer to make than I thought!
The picture isn't too exciting because the fabrics are different shades of gray,
but I have finished three of the sections needed.
Hopefully I will finish all of the sections today and begin to
sew the whole quilt together.
This past week I did finish knitting a pair of socks.
I will put this pair in my "gift" pile to have ready when needed.
A while ago I knitted a pair of socks from some yarn
that I just loved. There was a fair amount left over,
so I decided to make a pair of ankle socks for my daughter with
the tiny feet.
One is done... one is in the making.
One thing I am going to try to do this year
is make some of the kits I have stashed here and there
in my Hidey Hole.
I have a number of Bucilla Christmas kits to make and pulled one
out last night.
While watching football, I stitched this part together.
It's the base of the tree for an Advent calendar.
Happy New Year and may you create to your hearts content in 2016!!
