Happy New year

I wish a wonderful beginning to the new year to all of you. Just want to take a moment to dwell on a question all of my quilting friends are now asking. The answer is that I have not appliqued or quilted since November 11th. I think perhaps I would have gone back to it sooner rather than later, but as so often happens to me, I am in between whole projects or as it is this time, in between blocks. I often wake up the day of my TAS meeting and realize I finished the current block and have no plan or design for the next. Such is now the case. However a couple of days ago I finally realized I was missing something that has always kept me grounded. Something creative to help me keep my self together. I searched out a counted cross stitch project I have worked on from time to time for a few years. Yes, I admit it, I have UFO,s. There, I said it and while I am not proud of it, I have began working on it again. This time to finish I hope for the birthday this month of a dear family member. She reads these, so no more clues. I will share a photo when it is finished.

Margaret has complimented me on my collection of ephemera and lovely post cards. I could say thank you and move on but I have a very strong conscience and so i will give up my source here for everyone to see. In addition, I will call upon my daughter to add a button for this source to my blog so everyone can enjoy my favorite resource. graphicsfairy.com You are going to love this.

Nadine, thanks for the link! (You won't believe how much time I have spent, digging around that blog and all the others she has listed.) I sometimes forget all the resources we have at our disposal.

I look forward to seeing your next stitching project.
