2006 is behind us, and I am so glad! There were a few bright spots, one was having another grandson. He is such a joy and delight and we are SO blessed with the most beautiful and wonderful grandkids! A couple of great trips thrown in and new blogger friends, which is such a delight to me. There were many other trials and rough spots last year, and I thank God for the opportunities to grow in my walk with Him.
I'm looking forward to a brand new year with some exciting possiblities in store for me. I just hope that I can keep my head on straight, my lists organized and my health and energy high enough to do all I want to do! I'm not setting any goals, per se, although my "Fabric Depression" has almost become a game. I STILL haven't purchased any fabric for me (I have purchased some for gifts), and I'm not counting the fabric Kirt bought me for my birthday. After all, I didn't ask for it! :)
I have taken down all the Christmas stuff and now is the time that I get out all the Snowman stuff. I think that my snowmen outnumber my Christmas things. At least it keeps it in a festive mood for a few more months. And it doesn't look like we are going to get any snow anytime soon-so I'll create my own. It's a lot warmer that way, and safer to drive!
Here is a new project I'm working on. A student showed me an embroidery CD that does the applique and stitching while in the hoop the entire time! Of course I had to have it myself. This is one of 12 snowmen--they are all so adorable. I also did purchase a redwork snowman CD to do too. I'm thinking since my living room is now kind of reddish--I should make that quilt soon! All my other snowman stuff was blue.

Thanks to Jeanne of Spiral for her inspiring gratitudes list. I decided that I needed to do the same.
