Picture from my front door
Last night I cooked one Fairytale pumpkin--
There was a lot of pumpkin! Which turned into---
Don't you love that deep orange color?? There are still two more pumpkins, I'm not sure how much more I will can.
Over the last week I've been thinking about goals/resolutions for the next year. Here we go---
Sew what I enjoy
Limit stash additions
Quilt half my completed tops
Finish half my block sets into flimsies
Complete 56 "Two Lips" blocks
Applique half Beyond the Cherry Tree blocks
I will do things I enjoy. Participate with block swaps, lottos, group sewing. Donation quilts--yes, I really enjoy them. I will fret less over deadlines. I will cut into yardage!
Bake and cook less
Enjoy life more
Bake and cook less??? Yes, I am cutting back. More simple healthy foods. Less baking sweets. Last night as I canned the pumpkin I was looking for empty jars. I have LOTS of food I've canned. This next year I will probably only need tomatoes, a one or two Fairytale pumpkins, a FEW JARS of jam, and some canned turkey. Maybe a bit of home grown sweet corn. I know it is ingrained in me to can all that extra food, but we don't NEED it. Exercise more. How many people do you know that could say "exercise less"??!! I am not "saving" things for later.
And here are a few holiday pictures---

The best toy--the wrapping paper!
The holiday shorts were in the white elephant gift exchange. My dad has claimed them. We said if he wants them--he has to model them!
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
