It’s New Year’s Eve…

It’s New Year’s Eve… It almost makes me sad that another year has flown by as if it were rushing to catch a train.  I remember sitting in Sunday School Class in the 7th grade and someone was talking about the year 2000… I was thinking “Oh my gosh.. I’ll be 52 years old!”  Unbelievable.. lol

I read somewhere that I’m supposed to sweep the house from the back to the front, out the door and out into the road.  Well.. perhaps that won’t get done … I don’t know about everyone else, but I truly love to hear all the old superstitions of days past.  Who knows.. perhaps they were more than superstitions….


Sometime back I bought a new Janome sewing machine.  I knew it had alphabet programs, but I had never tried them.  Well, yesterday I did.  And I love them.  These are quick little tissue and phone covers that whipped up and then decided to try the alphabet.. and it worked!  They are a little difficult to see since I didn’t change to a dark colored thread, but if you look.. you can see it. 🙂  I had an embroidery machine at one time that would do letters and monograms, but I never figured out how to do sentences.  Well, now I can.  🙂


Last summer my friend Pat L. and I went to a new little shop here in town and decided to make our own yarn bowls.  Lo and behold.. they didn’t have anything to use as a mold.. you had to use a flat piece of clay and built your own any way you could.  So I made the little snakes like you made back in Summer Bible School.. remember.. ?? .. and then used a piece of plastic to smooth it out.  It didn’t come out too badly.. 🙂


Well, I’ve spread this post out and it has taken the entire day to do.. 🙂  It’s now 5:18 pm and I have supper cooking and my honey all sprawled out in there in his easy chair.   The weather here in North Texas is supposed to stay in 40s and 50s for the next week so perhaps we can get out and do some things..

Thank you… all of you have followed me through all the years.  Have a wonderful, happy, safe New Year..
