Happy New Year

Feet up watched the Patriots win. Now watching the Eagles and Redskins, yes I do enjoy a good football game.
A cup of hot tea and I am happy.




I have finished the hooking part of my little sled. 
Now to finish, I am going to put wool on the back for a chair pad.

I did wrap up a few of my Christmas things to put away.
These snow babies were made by an older lady here in town.
She has passed away now but she molded them and painted them. I bump into them once in awhile at the local thrift ( she donated to fund raisers a lot) and I snap them up when I can. She was so sweet and I loved to hear her talk.

This is one she did for me. Oh that sweet little bluebird on her shoulder, be still my heart I love it.
We went to husband's family's annual Christmas party
always lots of fun. The adults do a yankee swap and this is the best gift I have ever ended up with. I plan on taking it to work with me maybe it will help to keep everyone calm. plus a little scented moisture in the air can't hurt.

Well the old calendar on the wall says a new year is right around the corner. We all make resolutions or try, I do want to make a couple of goals for the next year. More on that later.

This Christmas was a hard one my son in law was so sick and in the ER on Christmas eve but all he could think about was Sweet B and her Christmas. I think they have finally figured it out with lots of trips to the hospital and the right medicine and your good prayers helped so much, thank you so much! Plus I have been dealing with something new but I am on the mend, I will start the new year with a root canal yahoo. (not) I will be so glad to see this month gone.

Happy New Year my sweet friends old and new. 
May it be a great one, I hope it brings you good health and great joy.

I'm hoping that your son in law will make a full recovery. Poor little Miss B. It must have been so scary for her and her mom. I'm glad they have figured out his medicine. I hope that January will turn out OK for you and your family after all this is sorted out.

I remember those snowbabies ceramic molds. They were quite the rage when I had a Ceramic business but I didn't buy the molds but another customer bought a lot of them to make for sale. How sad that your friend passed away.
Yay, you got your sleigh mat all finished. I still need to whip and bind my Julia Hen chairpad. I'm so lazy this winter.

I'll keep your son in law in my prayers.
Happy New Year.
Hugs, Julia

Great finish on the rug!!!
Those Snowbabies are too sweet. I love your special one.
I am happy to hear that they are getting to the root of son-in-laws problem.
You take care, my friend. I am sorry to hear you are dealing with some issues. This growing old is NOT for sissies.
Happy New Year.

The sled rug is great! So glad your son-in-law is getting better. Snow babies are adorable. We sell them in our store and are quite the collectors item now. So wonderful to have one where you know who the maker was. Hope you feel better too. I am going through some pain issues myself in my leg. Getting old is NOT fun lately. Janice

I hope your New Year is full of great things and no more sickness. I love those snowbabies. What a wonderful find. I hope they get your tooth all taken care of. I will keep your family in my prayers. Poor guy being in the hospital Christmas Eve. I hope he is recovering nicely at home.
