Well here we are closing out 2008. I think at this time each year we all stop and think of the things we are thankful for. I know one of mine is the people that God has brought into my life through our quilting group. They are an amazing group of women and have talents that are growing every day. Throughout this year I have watched them go from beginner to fabulous quilters. Each project I see them challenge themselves more and more. We've also got our new quilter Becky. It's always so enjoyably to me to watch new quilters discover fabrics, colors and patterns they never considered trying together. Becky has just started her first quilt and I think it's going to be just one of many to come and we've enjoyed getting to know her these past few weeks.
As to me who knows where I go from here. I have finally finished Amy's baby quilt and we'll certainly pray over it before it goes home to the new baby. I think I messed up every possible aspect of it from start to finish. But now it's just a photo and label away from being delivered. Turned out great since the baby is due in 3 days.
Now I'm back to work on Hazel's log cabin. I've been slack on it cause I've started doubting myself on the color and layout. The more opinions people give me the more I struggle with the idea of is it good enough - is it right? So I have decided - the colors are what Ms. Hazel requested and I'm going back to my original layout design. Once I did that the inspiration to get it finished is back. So starting tonight it's on the top of my list. Besides Hazel comes in 29 days and she siad she'll haul me to Minnesota to finish it. I'll freeze to death and die there so figured I better finish it.
Maybe she'll have some suggestions for the next one when she gets here. After that I have a new baby in Brandon that needs a quilt as well. The list never ends.
Be blessed and welcome the new year safely. You are all true blessings in my life.
