Sunday, January 22, 2012's been a year

It doesn't seem like a year since I have posted to my blog.  But what a year it has been.  Work has kept me busier than I ever thought it would this year.  I have been working many many hours and it has been exhausting.  I went home to Colorado for 10 days in July....I spent most of my time helping my niece with her house.  We did get to spend some time with our Grandson and Great was awesome.  Also spent time with our Granddaughter and her family...what a blast that was.  We hadn't seen her in more years than I care to think about...but it was like we had seen her yesterday.  Also spent time with her Mother...who we have always loved like a daughter..even after she divorced our son.  So all in all it was a good trip.  I did get a quilt or two done this last year and I have one on the design wall and another I just got the pattern for.  Hope to get the later one done first.  I want to enter it in the quilt show this year.  Hopefully I will get it started this week.

This years is going to be interesting.  I am doing some more traveling.  A short (5) day trip home to Colorado next month but then I will be going to HAWAII for 8 days in March.  I have never been to Hawaii and I am really looking forward to it.  I am going with my friend Jean and her mother.  Jean's daughter lives there, so we will be staying with her.  I am making a list of everything I want to see and do and I am sure we will not be getting much sleep.  I am making a list of fabric I want to complete a quilt with all of the rest of the fabric that Beth has sent me since she has lived there.  I have received a package of fabric every year for the past couple of I have quite a bit stored up.

I craft when I can...but I am trying to arrange my work schedule to make more time for crafting this years.  I miss it and need to get back to it.

Hope all is well with everyone and I plan to post more here this year.
