A New Year and A New Me

As I posted on the last day of 2016, my word for 2017 is action. I plan to take action on many fronts. Today was my first day to put it all in action. I got so much done and no back ache which is what has kept me from doing much for several months. Today’s activity involved some sorting and purging on the clothing front and also a trip to pick up some supplies to make Maria Shell’s Oven Mitts.

Our STASH Christmas party/lunch got postponed because of winter weather so I have not been able to show you what I made for them, yet. Soon!

We enjoyed a quick trip to California to spend some time with our effervescent granddaughter, Paige, and her Mom and Dad.

She wore the coming and going Winnie the Pooh sweater for me. The photo is blurry because she hardly stays still.

Jayme had a 28 hour shift in the NICU at Stanford Children’s Hospital so we went for a hike with Mark and Paige to the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve. It was in the 60s and we had a great time.

I love this collage of a photo of trees that I made using the Prisma app on my phone.

Speaking of my phone, I found out that mine was eligible for a battery replacement. I took it to the Apple store near my son’s home. When they replaced the battery, something happened to my phone camera so they gave me a brand new one. Pretty cool.

I managed to finish and mount the wool stitch along with Laura Wasilowski.

I am scared and angry about our narcissist president, but I plan to find joy in my daily life by being creative and loving to those I encounter. I will also resist and dissent against what ever is coming from Washington.

Happy New Year to all my readers. Thank you for staying with me.

  1. I’m with you, Gerrie! Great post, and very inspirational to me, and I’m sure to others. Taking a deep breath …

    I’m off to finish a quilt top. 5 blocks to sew on and then need to cut and add borders. A gift for my eldest daughter who makes me think of all things beautiful. That and some vacuuming is my action plan for the day.
    Thanks for keeping the blog on the action list. I really appreciate it.
