Things Change

We had a lovely Christmas this year.  Hard to believe it's been over for 3 days!  Merry Christmas from us to you!  I set the 10 second delay, and almost made it to my spot.  ;)

Over my shoulder, you can see my dad.  He's been having a bit of a rough patch, and will be staying with us for at least the next 10 days.  Then we're back to SoCal for further testing.  Memories...they're precious when you have them, and precious when you make them and when they begin to fade?  It's a hard thing to watch, and even more difficult to experience.  He said, "It's a difficult thing to realize you're less than you used to be."  indeed.

And so, my days have been filled with things other than quilting.  It's still on my list, but actually getting anything done?  Well, goals are good!  I have finished quilting the last basted string quilt, it is just waiting for binding.  If I can get it attached today, I can probably have it tacked down and finished by tomorrow.  One last UFO to check off of my 2016 list.  That's my goal.

And speaking of goals, have you set any for 2017?  It's still a bit early for me, but I'm beginning to put on my thinking cap.  Time to set goals, because, as you know, Goals Are Good!!

My grandpa had Alzheimers. It was awful. He lived for a long time in a state like a baby because he took such good care of his body it just wouldn't quit.

I'm still thinking about my goals. There is a challenge in the blog world to list 12 you want to get done in a year. I'm thinking of something like that this year.

Hope you have a wonderful new year. I will be spending it in Los Osos at Janice M. house quilting in the new year.

Having goals is a must. I know you'll come up with far more than 12! Hang in there.
