it's a new year...2011

The first day of a new year our wraptheminlove online group spends working on charity is my finished quilt to kick off the year.

I also visited Tonya's blog and ordered her book-it will be here in about a week...a gift idea I did not share with anyone but so very much wanted...and now I will be able to enjoy it when it arrives.

Quilting mojo has returned...2010 saw many health challenges happen at once in my life...and I learned as you age, and you don't keep active...muscles and other body parts "lose" now I am in the process of regaining lost functions which will enable me to fully live the life I want and love.

My sister asked what my word this year is...and after doing "balance" for 2 years, I decided on "follow through" for this year. I have many great ideas and intentions...and most of the time do not go any further with them than thinking about them...this year I will put into action many of them.

We often chose a theme for our home for the year as well....with M retiring later this year...setting the house in order is our theme- also known as less is more...!

We just finished having our living room floor tiled- with heating installed under the tile...cold feet will never be an issue (physically) again. I will share a photo of the floor in another post.

Last night Steve and Elizabeth (a former neighbor and dear friend) were married at about 12:05....thus their wedding date is 1-1-11...very cool. They are a wonderful and fun couple and we are so very happy for them...even if it meant we did not get home and to bed until 2 am!!!

It's been a pretty easy going day and tomorrow will most likely be more of the same...quilting/reading/sorting stuff/putting away/listening to music/and in general getting ready for the upcoming work week.

Thanks to all my friends who have accepted my being gone so long and are happy to see me back at my sewing machine and back doing again.
