The month of December came and went in the flash for me. There were so much to do before and during that month. No matter how hard I tried, I was never ready for it. It was especially hard for the last December, because I didn’t feel like doing anything. Have you ever had such a time that you just didn’t want to do anything? I had that quite a bit after my brain surgery in 2016. My doctor said my body went through an experience equivalent to PTSD, and would take 2-3 years to get back to my old self. I’ve tried to be positive and keep on doing the things that I love, such as sewing and volunteering, and that has helped me tremendously. Volunteering and doing service for others, have helped to keep my perspectives. I’m so blessed to have many wonderful people around me to help me get back to the right direction.
I have done quite a few projects in the past year but the project that I’m most proud of is this quilt top.
Our members in Valley MQG had made wonky log cabin blocks for our wonderful president Scott Griffin and I had the honor to put them together into this quilt top. I loved every single block in this quilt. They are from the heart of our members. Now it's in the hand of my good friend, Lois, to be quilted. We appreciate our outgoing president so much. He has helped lead and guide our brand new guild to its current stage today. And he has done a marvelous job. Thanks a bunch, Scott.
I’m taking my sister-in-law and my two children to visit Bangkok, Thailand to start off the New Year. They will be with me for 9 days but I will stay behind longer and will keep you updated with as many pictures as I can. It’s too bad that my dear husband can’t come with us. I won’t be doing much sewing but there are many things that I’ll be taking care of.
Here is our first day lunch at the world famous JJ Market.
I'm with wonderful companies and having a great lunch. Can't ask for anything more, really!! The only thing that's missing is my dear husband. Wish he was here with us.
Now that my New Year has gotten a good start, I'll be doing a lot of quilting this year. I set a goal to learn free motion quilting and I can't wait to get started when we get back. Bye for now.......
Embrace life and have fun!!
