Year’s End…

After reading many of your blogs on the projects you have completed this year, I got to thinking about the projects I’ve done this year and was surprised of what I have actually finished.  My hubby and kids always tell me I’m constantly working on something, but I guess I didn’t realize it until today.

Here’s how it turned out…

16 quilted projects
8 sewn projects
17 crocheted projects
1 painted project
1 no sew/stitched project

43 projects completed in the year.  That’s an average of about 3 1/2 projects a month.  Guess I was busier than I thought.

I was surprised that the crochet and quilted were close in number.  I figured I would favor one, a lot more than the other, but it seems that is where my stitch is.

Easy Guacamole Recipe

2 avocados
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ripe tomato, chopped
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste

Peel and mash avocados in a medium serving bowl.  Stir in onion, garlic, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper.  Season with remaining lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.  Chill for half an hour to blend flavors.

I guess that’s it for this evening.  It won’t be long and it will be….

Here’s wishing you a wonderful year full of blessing!!

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Hi Sonia –

    Wow! I'm impressed. When you love doing something, it's easy to rack up the numbers.

    I read quite a few books in 2011, but didn't keep track. I don't think I read as many as the previous year.


    P.S. As of tomorrow, I'm back from my blog break. 🙂
