WOW where has the time gone, I had not been on here for a few MONTHS!!! Ive never gone this long and I have never missed blogging my Christmas...but I have been just trying to decide if I want to continue this blog or just shut it down...so I took a break. Its not that I dont love it...its just wondering if its even worth it...so much time involved...but then I go back to the beginning many years ago...and I have a diary of my life!!!! births, deaths, weddings, friendships made,,,friendship lost....weight gained, weight lost LOLOL...and I have to say...I cannot stop now, I love to stroll back thru the years and see whats been going on in my life!!! SO I will continue!!!!!!!! January was one of the funnest months ever!!!! Sharon...from Red Geranium came and spent a week here with me and we had so much fun!!! We went to the Road to California Quilt show and then on the other days .... we sewed....( I think Sharon might still have a couple of these valentines kits over at Daisy Cottage, they went together SO fast!!!) and drank.... and crafted... and ate...and ate...lol...it was an amzing time and we cant wait til she visits again!!! She made the most amazing chicken caccatore for us and we ate and ate!!!! the diet starts tomorrow lolol... I also had the pleasure of having a little retreat with some dear old friends up in the gorgeous mountains of Tehacapai...four of us gals from my craft club...whom I have known and loved forever...got together and we crafted....we made these darling little Valentine garlands from Pinterest... and these awesome wine bottle night lights... We sat in front of this amazing fireplace for 4 days and drank wine and watched movies...and gabbed, and we even got a walk in to see a family of deer before it started snowing and for this cali girl..being snowed in was pure bliss!!!! OH and did I mention for 4 days we ate???? And so my friends....life has been very very busy but in the best of ways!!! I have not been visiting blogs for awhile because my computer was giving me fits...but hopefully I can catch up with all of you in the weeks to come... I also plan on destashing my sewing room...and also having a give away....so please stay tuned...I have quite a few wool kits from Primitive Gathering I plan on selling, just have more than I could ever make!!!! I have missed you all but catching up will be fun!!!!
