As the New Year Nears

 As the new year approaches, I am feeling so blessed as I look back at the past year. 
Sewing is still my favorite hobby and I have been so lucky to have been able to sew for my Etsy shop and enjoy every minute of it.
I decided to start this new year out by clearing out my old merchandise and starting all over again with new items.  So, needless to say, I have been busy.
I have been sorting vintage laces, linens, potholders and buttons to use on new items.
I am still collecting McCoy (and no, it has nothing to do with my plans for the new year, except to find more).
I'm pressuring my brain to come up with some new ideas for all of my many, collectible pieces of china.
I definitely am ready for Spring and warm weather.  We have been lucky and not had too much cold and ice and snow.  But, I'm still ready for Spring.
Bella is ready for the green grass to play in, I'm ready for flowers and I'm so ready to paint my bicycle I got and decorate for the yard.
You may have noticed that I have a new header - thanks to Brenda.  She has been such a blessing in my life this past year and I never would have been able to do this blog without her constant help.
Thanks Friend!!
Thanks also to all of my readers and followers.  You have inspired me and I have so many new friends.
So, 2012 has been a very good year.
Till next time, Judy

Glad you've had a good year! I'm like you - so ready for spring! We've had now here this week and I do not like it much. Ready for warmer weather and gardening!

Happy new year!

Judy- I am glad to have met you here this year blogging. It is going to be a great year. I have been sorting through my stuff, too, and finally getting rid of stuff that is not ME. Easier said than done. I am so glad that Brenda has helped you- she is a great gal- xo Diana

Glad you've had such a good year, Judy. I'm ready for spring too. But I'm afraid we have a long way to go still! I like your new blog header. What a blessing you and Brenda have been to each other.
