How are you feeling?

Is 2012 treating you well?

Or are you feeling a bit like Mysty and me?


We would just kinda like to throw our arm over our eyes and bury our heads in the blankets and stay there for a while.

December brought us Mysty’s 20th birthday and a few new health problems to go along with old age.

And then . . .

A good friend of mine ran into some HUGE issues in December and we’ve been trying to make sense of these and work through them with her.  Non-health related but very life changing for her and her family, and just about everyone around her!  Sometimes it’s that slap upside the head that makes you look at everything just a bit differently around you.  But . . . life still trudges on whether you accept it or not.


The quilt mo-jo almost left the house as well . . . although I did dredge up a little ambition to pull out some leftover bright colored prints to make a little baby quilt.


It did kinda make me feel better for a while.  Then I made another one and another one – maybe the mo-jo is back?!?!?!

I received an email this morning from a very talented quilter in California.   Barbara from the Pointless Quilter made this quilt from my recipe on The Moda Bakeshop – she even made it bigger with more borders added . . . amazing!  I love how this email showed up at the same time as I was using the leftovers of the same fabric – this made my day.  Thank you Barbara!

How is your January so far?

2012 is gearing up to be interesting if nothing else!  Have a great week everyone . . .

Best wishes for 2012 - and to Mysty too, even if she just wants to curl up and hide!

What Comes Next? said...

I've had that curl up and hide feeling for awhile now, and am slowly shaking loose of it. I am looking forward to a great 2012, it's just taking a while to get moving! I hope your's settles into being a good year, for both you and your friend.

Hope the coming weeks settles things...This is such a tough time of year and I for one can't wait for things to feel "back to normal" (((hugs)))

I've had a few cats but none ever got to 20! Perhaps she has good genes? Or did you discover a secret, like no commercial cat food, for example. I'm just guessing. I did have a collie that lived to 15 which is pretty remarkable. She had a stroke, poor girl.

Sorry about your friend's troubles. She has you however. And you have her.
