Best of 2020 posts

Soon 2021 will be here. Cheryl of: Meadow Mist Designs is hosting her yearly Best of link party. We may choose our top 5 posts, by number of views, comments, etc... This year I have decided to use number of comments for my completed quilts. Here are the Top 5:

First is from the Winter Blues Blog Hop, the blue canoes quilt. This quilt garnered a whopping 40 comments.

Next is the Hands to Help Comfort quilt Challenge, hosted yearly by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This quilt is Confetti, and it gained 7 comments. It went to my great-nephew, who lost his grandmother (my twin sister) and his father within 3 months' time.

Happy Holidays 2020!

Sending happy holidays wishes to you all. Hoping tht you are all safe and well. Wow, it is really cold this morning, in the 20's! No snow though. How do you like my little Christmas tree? It is perfect for an apartment, but hoping to find a 3' one on clearance after the holidays (for next year). Still no new grandson, yet. Maybe he will arrive very soon. In these times of COVID, I am extra mindful of those who are ill, and those who have lost loved ones. Let's remember to wear a mask and to use social distancing during the holidays, as always. Blessings.

2021 Planning Party

2021 will be here soon, can you believe that? 2020 has been truly a year to experience a lot. As far as quilting and sewing, my 2020 goals were mostly met, lol. This year's goals will be similar to those same goals.

1. Still working on UFOs, and two WIPs. This year has been slow for me, due to health reasons. 'Got to finish soon-to-arrive grandson's baby quilt!

2. Blogging more often. 2020 has seen my absence quite often. Thank all of you for not giving up on me, and staying tuned to this blog. Sewing and quilting will always be very important in my life.

3. Still need to work more on paper piecing skills and learning new quilting designs.

4. Sewing charity quilt blocks and pillowcase dresses will resume.

This blog turned 10 years old back on 26 October. The annual Blogoversary Giveaway did not happen, as did not the Homespun Holidays Giveaway. This really saddens me, and I promise that soon there will be a giveaway to help make-up for all of that. How about you? What are your goals for 2021?

Time for new eyeglasses!

One way to know we are getting older is eyesight, isn't it? For many years, I have worn trifocals. The time came to get a new prescription, so next week my new eyeglasses will be ready. They are similiar to the current frames, except a stronger prescription, lol. Now it will be easier to sew and quilt, so more of the UFOs will get finished. Some people do not like to wear eyeglasses, but it has really never bothered me. They are necessary, but are also a nice accessory. What do you think? Blessings.
