Happy New Year!!! New Year's Eve my husband took two of our daughter's, Emily, age 9, and Kimberly, age 16, to a Square Dance from 7 to midnight. They had a wonderful time dancing the night away. Then at midnight they threw balloons, confetti and popped party poppers. I had a nice relaxing evening at home with our two boys, ages 7 and 22 months. We watched movies, played games and read stories. Then at midnight we hugged, danced to music and yelled out Happy New Year, read more stories and went to bed.
I hope you are having a wonderful day and a great start to your new year. This past year has been fun for me having my new blog and getting to know so many of you. I so appreciate all of your encouraging and kind words. You have made this a very rewarding endeavor for me. Another thing that's made it so much fun to blog about my projects is blogging with my daughter, Emily. We have enjoyed doing this together, talking about what projects to do, sewing and doing art together, what pictures to post, doing giveaways, and leaving comments on our favorite blogs.
And finally resolutions. I can think of so many things that I wish to improve and work on in the new year. I will be giving these some thought and making a few simple goals. Most of all, though, I would like to keep my priorities straight and put God at the top of the list. So I leave you with this, from Priscilla Shirer's latest book, "And We Are Changed," written to her brother Anthony.
Most of the photographs on my blog have been wiped out. Somehow they were lost. It would be too time consuming to replace. I have placed a few pictures here just so that it will not be completely blacked out. I now blog over at Sewing With Trudy if you would like to visit and follow me there.
Welcome! I am a God loving, homeschooling mama of six, Mimi of two and sewing enthusiast. This is where I chronicle my creative adventures. I am so glad your creative journey has brought you here. As the daughter of a gifted sewist and crafter, I spent my childhood in a home brimming with paintbrushes and sewing notions. Thank you so much for making Sewing With Trudy a part of your day. Enjoy your visit.
