wow. It's been awhile! My days have been so full, I've neglected you mightily. Christmas has come and gone, and with it, our faraway kids and extended family. But oh, what a Christmas it was! Truly it was lovely to have everyone here. Who is everyone? This is everyone:
Front row: Husband, Self, PennyPie, LadyFriend&my Dad
I don't give you names, because some of them don't like to leave a trail on the internet. But if you know us, you probably know them. And if you don't, well, at least you know how the faces are related to me. :)
I loved my tree. I still love my tree. It's still up, and I'm hoping it will last through the New Year. So far, so good. It's not overly dry or drooping yet. I know the day is coming, but so far, so good.
And quilts were a part of it. Some were gifted:
My piece "Ice," which traveled with SAQA's "This is a Quilt" exhibit for 2 years, sold on Christmas Eve.
Today I will head into my Studio, where I can almost push open the door without interference. I've toyed with the idea of taking before/after pictures, but really? Who wants to see this type of clutter? I've never seen Hoarders, but I suspect this particular room would be in the running for some serious air time.
And on that, I hope your Christmas was filled with blessings, and I wish you joy and peace in the coming year.
