Happy New Year - I hope it is a terrific year for everyone.
I am still quilting on my quilt. I have been dragging my feet. Of course, I cannot just sit and do it. My back just will not allow me to sit for long periods of time, and I wish I could use that for an excuse, I just have not got it done. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I just might finish that up today.
I want to show you what I have been working on the last several weeks. As you all know I have returned to crocheting. I am a creature of habit. My tv is rarely on until about 8:00 at night. At that time I sit down, turn on the tv and pick up the crocheting. I crochet for about 2 hours and then I retire to bed. It is a boring life and nothing much changes. This is the yarn that I purchased in Anchorage, AK. These pictures really don't do it justice. It is by Ella Rae. They put out the most gorgeous yarns. I took these pictures close up so they are blurry but I wanted you to see the pattern. I am not sure it shows as great as it really looks.
George (sit down long arm sewing machine) is calling. He is saying that I am never going to get this quilt finished unless I make an effort. The explanation of George above is for those that don't know what/who George is (he is not my boy friend). George is my buddy. He does a super job and would do an even better job if this was my talent. I think I could live to be a hundred and never ever be great at this.
My mother, she had a little saying for everything in life. She would say "can't never did anything". Think about that, that is a true statement. She would also say "there is no such word as can't." I have had that echo through my brain over and over again. And she was very good at saying, "practice makes perfect." I thank my mother today, for any talents that I do possess, for it was she who taught me and insisted that I do it right.
Again, Happy New Year.................
