HERE COMES 2016!!! December 31 2015
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
WOW! Where does time go? Does everyone remember the kerfuffle when we were heading into the new millennium 16 years ago? Talk about your Chicken Little story!!
Our hydro would shut off!!!
Prisoners would escape because their cell doors would automatically open!!!
Our money would be lost into a cyber void!!!
WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THAT????
HECK! ANY OF THOSE THINGS CAN HAPPEN WITHOUT A NEW MILLENNIUM!!!
So, why not just be happy with the moment? We've got lots to be thankful for! After all, as quilters, we always have something that holds our interest; something new to learn and most importantly, our great creations will be around long after we have shuffled off this mortal coyle!
Resolutions ALWAYS naturally flow from a new year. You all know the old standards, and we're not going to highlight any of those today.
Ooops! I guess I just did highlight the old standards!!! Sorry about that!!!!
How about some POSITIVE quilting resolutions for 2016 that should be easy to keep?
YOU ARE SEW WORTHY OF BEING KIND TO YOURSELF!!!!
In other words, when someone pays your quilt a compliment, do NOT immediately start to say, "Oh, thanks, but look at the mistakes here and..." We all do it! Let's ALL stop and enjoy the positive compliment.
AND TAKE THE PLUNGE!!!
TRY SOMETHING NEW!!! DON'T SAY, "Oh, I can't do that." YES, YOU CAN!!! GIVE IT A WHIRL!!! WHO KNOWS? You just might find another quilting technique that you absolutely LOVE!!!!
Happy New Year Everyone!!!
Make sure you come in for a visit and show off your creations. Most importantly, accept our compliments!!! After all, YOU REALLY ARE AWESOME!
Also... just a reminder! Please remember your local food bank. The need doesn't stop once the holiday season has passed.
