Hi everyone!!

It's a new year and this one I am determined to do ALL my ufos.  I joined a contest for it to help me keep inspired so we will see if I can actually get it done!!

I found a embroidery table clothe that had been sitting since I recieved it at about  age 20 approx 27 years ago!! and it was sitting in  the ladies ufo pile for a while before that!! It now sits beside me chair to work on off and on between other projects. Now if I can get new glasses so I can see what I am doing it might go faster!!!    
I finished a few projects already.
raspberry rabbits

funky chicken

odd patterns bom

here is my second block of the week block for this year called Ranchers daughter on the scrappy appleyard  it's a block a month done in what ever you want so using it as a fill in  project.










We got a new truck as well!! It is a 2013 gmc sierra extended cab and I actually have the keys!! now if I can get the nerve to get behind he wheel again it has been soo many years since I drove . I'm not meant to drive right now with my leg until It gets looked at incase it locks up  on me but I have been told that I can use my left foot if I need to  but I am still nervous about it.  but it is pretty to look at !! and I know if I really need to go somewhere I can. Makes a big difference knowing that.  the poor equinox was really run down now that our son has stopped using it!!  He drove it everywhere and I do mean everywhere it got to the point he didn't ask anymore just took it!!  this one he doesn't have keys for and I'm not allowed to give them to him unless he has to take me somewhere or do something for me.!!!  This year we decided it was time for us to have us time again Kyle will be 21 years in Febuary can't believe it is that time already !! so it's our time now!!  Yeah I hear you all laughing but we will see how it works out!!! especially as he is still living here!!!!

I am working on putting together my  country cottage quilt yesterday and today hopefully I will get it done.
I finally got back into my work drawers and got Esthers forget me not back out. I am on the Tulips  I have the tulip applique ready and half pinned so will get that ready today as well.  I have the  freezer paper ready for the others and I will work the next few days getting them ready for applique over the weekend.!!  I was actually shocked when I realized my hand sewing box was EMPTY!   I also dug out a crochet afghan for Gizmo that I started last year well I should say the year before that!!  It is orange and brown It is also by my chair for night time work. 

And lastly  I decided I needed to set aside some reading time again with an actual book! I have a book shelf filled with ones I wanted to read but I haven't got around to it so I have a pair of cheaters of hubbys to help me with the print for now so I have the first book sitting started again!

Well I know this has been long but I've missed talking to you all.  I get to sit today off and on and catch up with eveyones posts Love to sit with a cup of tea and read them.
I h ope everyone has a great new year this year and good health to go with it.

All the best until we talk again!!
