Thank You

Last post of 2014 and I'd like to simply say THANK YOU!

THANK YOU for following along on my quilting journey.

THANK YOU for taking the time to read and comment. In these days of instant everything I really appreciate the time taken to read and especially comment on my posts. I love hearing from you.

THANK YOU for all the great things you post on your own blogs. I love feeling connected to the greater quilting community at large. I'm inspired by all you do and I've enjoyed seeing the recaps and finishes that many of you post. It's motivating to see what you've accomplished.  I'm also really excited to meet many of you in person at QuiltCon. Anyone counting the weeks yet?  Seven weeks from today I leave for Austin. Are you going too?

With the NewYear just a day away, I've been thinking a lot about my own personal plans and goals. Plans for this blog and my quilting journey. Perhaps a quilt along. Perhaps some tutorials. Definitely definitely more quilting.

I have yet to review my own finishes for 2014 but I'm sure there will be some mix of satisfaction and a tinge of disappointment. I accomplished some of what I set out to do and in other areas fell flat. That's life and I have no regrets . . .  only future plans and dreams.

One overriding theme for 2015 will be GRATITUDE. Gratitude for my family and this wonderful life and all it holds in the coming years. Gratitude for all the quilty friends I've made these past couple of years through blogland and through our new guild. And gratitude for all the beautiful fabric I have to play with.

I'm looking forward to sharing more of my quilting journey with you.
Have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May all your dreams and plans come true . . .   : )

PS.  Kitty bed update . . . both kitties are sometimes using their new beds. We've progressed from Leo using and Opal resisting to both using but with the old towel nearby. I guess it's a little like weaning a toddler off a security blanket.
