Happy New Year!

Another year over..... With all the health issues my family has endured this year I must say I am glad this year is soon behind us. I am wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year, myself included!

It hasn't been all bad, I've been fortunate to meet some very sweet women and share my passion for crazy quilting with them. I've enjoyed several glorious days of peaceful walks along the lake shore with mom. The visits with friends and field trips to new places were just wonderful and memorable. Spending time with you in blog land has always been a favorite pastime of mine. Viewing your projects, homes, families and sharing with you is always a gift. I hope to spend many more years with you here.
Tonight we will spend the evening drinking sparkling grape juice and watching old movies. We haven't celebrated away from home for many years. We are very content at home, safe and sound awaiting the new year to arrive....if we hold out that long :-)
I hope you drive safe if you go out and enjoy ringing in the NEW YEAR!

Here are some images for you to enjoy.
This one is especially for my Irish friend, Pam K


  1. Happy new year to you too Pat. We're spending ours in much the same way - just replace your sparkling juice with tea! Here's to another year of creativity. Health and happiness to you and yours.

  2. Happy New Year, Pat. It is 12 noon here now. We've slept through most of it, had breakfast, did some grocery shopping and watching a documentary on TV now. I wish you good health and happiness for 2011.

  3. Happy new year to you and yours, Pat!! ~ Angela

    We don't do anything special for New Year's either. Scott took me to JoAnn's where I found tons of great marked down craft supplies. Had a coupon too!
