2012 is coming to an end. I look back at all the blessings of the year and count the biggest blessing to be the birth of our grandson. An early delivery, a tiny bundle of joy weighing only 3 lbs 3 oz and at only 15 inches long, we spend hours praying and watching him slowly grow. In just 27 days he was able to come home. And now, he is doing well and over 9 lbs.
Quilter's Pantry grew throughout the year. We had longarm work, custom quilts ordered, premade quilts that sold, and other items we made sold as well. We met new people and shared our love of quilting and being creative.
I know you all have goals, dreams, desires, wishes, and lists of things to accomplish during the new year. As quilters our UFO pile never goes away. We finish one project and tend to start two more. We see a pattern and want to make it. We see fabric and just have to have it. We learn a new technique and can't wait to try it out.
I look forward to what 2013 holds for each of us. We never know what we may find around the next corner. Each new day that we will face will give us an opportunity to learn more, share more, and enjoy more. If we face each day with a smile others will smile with us.
I will be letting you know soon of some exciting new developments at Quilter's Pantry. Something I've wanted to do for a while. 2013 will be the year to do them. And as soon as plans are complete I will let you know about them. If you live close by and want to learn to quilt you will especially be interested.
As we celebrate the ending of 2012 I wish you all a safe and happy New Year.
Til next time ---- stay warm, stay safe. Keep those needles stitching.
