My goodness! Have you ever seen such an original title? Gives you an idea of the state of my mind - depleated! What a crazy busy insane holiday season I've had. I didn't do much in-store shopping. most of my gifts were purchased online and with free shipping, so that was a good thing. But then a good many packages didn't come until the 24th! Not much time left for wrapping them! And non-Christmas stuff squeezed its way in too, which left too many of the fun things - like baking dog cookies for the local shelter (and Santa's reindeer) with my grandkids until the very last second of Christmas Eve afternoon! Those kind of memories are what make the holidays special and I hate it when I feel grouchy and rushed. But, when all was said and done, it was a fabulous, joyous Christmas Day with all of my four children, their wives and grandkids whooping it up, lots of good food, good cheer and laughter. So all the crazies before hand were forgotten and we realize we are so blessed!

Many times this month (it's still Dec. right????) I sat down at the computer and thought "I really need to get out and take some pictures for the blog".......................................and then nothing happened! Or rather I was distracted by other thoughts of what I had do and moved on to something else. So, dear friends, AFTER the New Year is over (exactly what that means - not sure) I will start to KEEP my #1 resolution and post more often and with pictures to boot. We'll see, we'll see! I do have new designs for the Nashville market that are beginning to come together, so I hope to show you snippets and bits to whet your appetite! Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, do have a safe but happy time this weekend- I hope wherever you are Saturday, you are relaxing with some stitching or with family and friends - or both! Make happy memories with those you love!

Wishing you all a happy, prosperous New Year!

New motto for 2011:
