Happy New Year…..a Time For Reflection

Here we are at the end of 2012…the year that zoomed by.  Like everyone, life has given us ups and downs……happy and sad times.  None of us can escape either, but that’s what makes life, life.  There are always lessons to be learned, and family and friends who surround you …to be there to cheer you on, and there to pick you up and support you when needed.  I am so, so grateful for my wonderful family and the great friends that I have, which includes so many bloggy fri004ends.  I have been thinking about my word for 2013, and I have decided to reuse my 2011 word…..Gratitude!!!!
The last few days I have been a big  blob…just kind of hanging out in my sewing room straightening a bit.  The dust bunnies were starting to wave at me as I walked in and out, so figured it was time to do some straightening and cleaning!! 
Yesterday I decided to sew a wee bit.  I saw this cute towel on a few blogs by Sweetwater and knew I had to have one….so in no time whipped it up using Mama Said Sew by Moda.  This months Schnibbles challenge was to sew something004 from the Morsels pattern, so I whipped up a pincushion using the Lucy's Crab Shack fabric from
Moda. Thanks to Sherri and Sinta for hosting Another Year of Schnibbles….so fun!!!! 
Tonightmosaic06e217d3d2a301b5014d6d9172823a56e3827653 I am going to watch New Years TV and work on a runner of packages from The Christmas Favorites book.  I made one earlier in the year, but this one is going to have six packages to go on my counter in the laundry room for next Christmas!  I am still in denial that Christmas is over…it just went too fastchristmasthroughtheyearbutton.  Speaking of Christmas… Kim at Lily Patch Quilts has very graciously taken on hosting Christmas Through The Year for 2013.  Word has it she will be posting about it tomorrow, so check over at her blog.
FrthCALG0XURom our family to yours we wish you a very Happy New Year!!!    Here’s to a great 2013!!!!!!

I love all your sewing and plans for the year. So pleased the Christmas Through the Year is continuing. It is a real help.
Gratitude is such a nice word. It goes together with so many wonderful emotions.

I really like the word you picked "Gratitude". The pincushion is fun, I have the pattern but didn't get around to making any.

I love seeing all of your projects... it was a fun recap! I love the Lucy's Crab Shack! I am going to miss the links you always provided last year for tutorials. I think grateful is a perfect word for 2013.
