Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Mine was different. Thanksgiving came with a move. Downsizing is not fun when you aren't prepared for it. Christmas was great. Got to spend it with my whole family. Just not at one time. But that's ok. My son and his wife came for Christmas Eve which for us was the 23rd. It is so nice to see them both.  Then the official Christmas Day brought my husband home from out of town. M was so excited. When he knocked at the door I let her open it. Daddy was the best gift of the day. I thought so too. New Years was quiet for us. Everyone was in bed before midnight and we have just been enjoying the vacation time at home.

My sewing room is still somewhat of a mess. So very little sewing has been taking place.  Bonnie Hunter's yearly mystery quilt began on black Friday. This year the quilt is named Celtic Solstice. If you get a chance stop by her blog and take a peak . It's free until the end of May when she will pull it off her website and it will then go into a future book. .  I printed out all of the clues and saved them for a later date. On New Year's Eve she surprised everyone by giving us the big reveal. It is gorgeous! I have step 3 done and step one started. Can't wait to see this quilt completed.  Hopefully I will get my sewing room finished so I can get motivated to get sewing again.

My dear daughter in law graduated from George Fox University on 12-21-13. We are so proud of her. She graduated with BA in biology. Don't they make a cute couple?

I have to start getting back into the usual routine of going to bed relatively early and getting up early. Yuck! But as they say "All good things must come to an end." Sad but true.
