Two Reasons to Celebrate!

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but sweet for certain.  
~ Dave Matthews Band

Well, let's get the obvious one out of the way first...  

Yes, this is my 300th post on this blog.  :)

I'd like to thank everyone for staying up all night, 
just to help me usher in this momentous post...  ;)


Now, you may not realize this, but there is another reason to celebrate today.  

Today is, in fact, the first day of a new year!  

And now we welcome the new year,
full of things that have never been.
~ Rainer Maria Wilke

Tomorrow, [today, actually] is the first blank page of a 365 page book.
Write a good one.  
~ Brad Paisley

What are you going to write in your book this year?    


  1. My 2013 ended on a sour note. My husband had a heart attack on 11/30 and a triple bypass surgery on 12/5. My dear pastor, Msgr Edward Miller, died suddenly on 12/15...all and all I know God is in control....he spared my husband and called Fr. Ed home to his glory. I know I will come to accept this more and more as time goes by, but my heart aches so because I can see him in this world. I will try to live the way he taught me so that I can see him in heaven.

    Happy New Year, wishing all your sewing dreams come true!

    1. Oh, Tee - I'm so sorry to hear about your challenges and your loss this past month. :(
      I will keep you and your husband in my heart and in my thoughts in 2014 - I hope this new year brings blessings to both of you.
      All the best,
