We have started a tradition. Some people go out for a nice dinner for their birthday--Joy and I sew together whenever possible.  Well, this year it was not possible because of a giant ocean in between us
But sew we must!!!
So, Lola of ...and Sew On came over and we ate cake, and pizza.
Not a healthy thing in sight!!! Wasn't on the resolution list!
And yes--we sewed!!
And sewed and sewed some more.
Lola actually finished getting all her blocks sewed together.
Looking good!
I finally finished all my blocks a few minutes ago, so picture will be coming to a post real soon.
So Happy Birthday Joy!!!
Wish you were here!!!
And for a party giggle.
Murphy is the special of the day!
He is special!!!

Happy New Year!!!

I know I am a little late, but it is the thought that counts right?
The holidays are gone and almost seem like a pleasant if not somewhat hectic dream.
I am sitting down doing my blog--must be the new year since that is one of my many resolutions.
Sadly the reason I am sitting down is because I have a horrid achy coldy thing and I don't feel like moving at all.
My darling hubby is so good at sharing!!!!

So, while I am immobile it is a good time to tell everyone about the continuation of Finishing Stitches started by Joy back in July. I think we all managed to get something done and what better way to clean up the sewing room than join in the fun and get those UFOs complete and hung nicely on a wall or better still--a few presents done long before the holidays.
Wouldn't that be cool!!! So all the tiny fine print is over on Joy's blog--not much of it--mostly finish projects or blocks and get your name in the hat to win charm packs. What could be simpler.
So grab the new and improved button:

And lets start finishing. And yes I am talking to myself very loudly because I spent the last few days trying to sort out the mess that is my sewing room. And I have come to the conclusion that there is no hope for it unless I start sewing. I thought I should finish 3 things for every one new thing I started???? That didn't sound fun at all--after all my DS definitely inherited his short attention span from me. So I will try very hard to keep it one to one!!!! 
This is my year for less stressing and more sewing. And more posting about my more sewing!!!!

So what are your New Year's resolutions?  
And have you made any progress on your New Year's Resolution?
Well, good luck to all.
I am going to take some cold medicine and a nap so hopefully I will feel more like tackling the world tomorrow.
