Better Late Than Never

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a very merry & bright holiday season! 

Tumacácori National Historical Park. Tumacácori, Arizona
I can't believe the holidays came and went! I was sitting in front of my sewing machine the majority of the time, as I handmade the majority of the Christmas gifts I gave this season. I felt so exhausted, but was happy to spend time with family and friends throughout the holidays. I was excited to ring in the new year and look forward to getting back to work this year. 

2013 is already looking busy for me, as I have a dissertation to finish, but I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting back into the swing of things. I have lots of embroidery stitches to try, new sewing projects at hand, and a few ideas that I am hoping to tackle.

Do you have big plans for the new year?

Until next time!

Sounds like you had a fun and busy holiday season!

I'm ironing out your quilt top this weekend. I'll mark the 2 areas that need a bit of mending, and pop it in the mail early next week!
