Happy New Year!

So here we are into the year 2011.  Boy, does that sound strange!  No rip roaring New Years parties here.....I went to bed at 9:30 and my husband stayed up late:  11:30.
Next important thing on my list is to work on my entries for our quilt show which takes place every February.  I am entering my chicken quilt because I feel someone might like it.  I took a lot of time running all over heck picking out my Kaffe Fassett fabric to make this wonderful Lightning quilt.  I had visions of granduer I guess because, once I made my templates, I discovered I REALLY did not want to make this quilt which included cutting a million paralleograms (sp?).  Therefore, I just chose a quilt I have been wanting to make for a long time and got on with it!  I actually finished the quilt top in just one day.....funny how fast things can go when you get your way and make what YOU want to make, instead of making something you think OTHERS would like to see. new years resolution will be :  Make myself happy in all my creating
                                                                Don't make things to please others
                                                                Take time to smell the roses
                                                                 Enjoy family and friends and make THEM happy.....
Because......when you are happy, they are happy!    So....Happy New Year!
