As promised…

Hi, Christmas is over and it’s back to normal  again.  I hope you enjoyed your time with family and friends for Christmas.  I know I did.

Rain, Rain, Go away…

My son went back home today, he had to drive in the rain most of the way but made it safely. I miss him already.

On Christmas eve, my work day ended at 2:00 p.m.  When I got home, I could hear music as I walked closer to the house. What a surprise to see my husband and my two kids playing music.  It’s been a while since all three have played music together.

As promised, here are the two fleece blankets I made for Christmas.

This blanket was made with 1 yard of the theme fabric and the solid gray back. The gray was textured like fur.  I added a 6.5″ border in black.  This made the blanket to be 48″ x 60″.

This blanket was made using 2.5 yards of the brown plaid and tan.  I used my Serger and bound it with coordinating thread.   It is 60″ x 72″.

I’ve been thinking about goals to set for 2016.  I’m still working on goals for this year and am

confident I will get the last one completed on time (12/31/15).   I must admit this last goal is probably the only goal that I have steadily stayed on pace with.  The other goals I accomplished were often times finished at the last minute, but finished none the less.  I hope to pace myself better next year.

Did you set goals for this year?

How did you do?

Will you set goals for next year?

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.

  3. 'Love the fleece quilts. As always, have goals set but will likely be slow meeting them, lol. We have been getting a lot of rain and storms also. No snow. Wishing you a wonderful week 🙂
