Momentous year for me personally. January saw hubs and I celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, February I was elected as President of my quilting group. During the year we purchased a new car, hubs and I became first time grandparents to a lovely little girl who is a delight to both us as grandparents and her parents.
I developed a mystery illness
and remain to this day a complete puzzle to my dr and cardiologist.
Fortunately I have no ill effects and life is now back to what is was before it
I also retired from the workforce after 40 years. If I had not retired I would have been due to go back to work on Tuesday and at this stage I am far from ready mentally to go back. I have settled into this retirement mode very quickly. I have surprised myself at just how much I have achieved in the garden as well as finding time to read, cooking, getting back into going for my daily walk, doing jigsaw puzzles and being able to enjoy shopping at a leisurely pace instead of racing in and grabbing what I need and run out again.
On the sewing front I made a lot of items for the baby including this tummy time quilt which I wanted to be all different textures for her to feel. I used chenille, wool, satin, fleecy , suede and ribbing to achieve those textures.
that I have retired I will have more time to spend making
clothes for the baby as well as for myself and of course quilting. I have a
few WIP's that need to be finished.
Best wishes to everyone for
2014. May you find time to do all the things that you need and want to do and
all your UFO's and WIP's turn into completed items.
