A Fondness for January


I love January. I like being cozy, inside our house. Working on projects and dreaming of new ones. 

Plus, my birthday is in January. Tomorrow, in fact. Shhhh! It isn't one of the BIG ONES, but I am certainly no spring chicken.

I'll tell you a secret though. I love being this age. I think my 50s (again, shhhh!) is probably my favorite decade so far, believe it or not. If you are in the same age group, you'll know what I mean. If you are younger, you'll find out soon enough.

After putting away Christmas pretties, it's fun to put out something fresh. If only I had the stitching talents to produce such loveliness as this.




My son's favorite shirt. He would like me to trace it and make one that is similar. Hey, I'm game! I think it will be fun and he's all excited about it! Fortunately, he is not insisting on the chest pocket.

Stay tuned for lots of pictures of the tracing process.



If you live in a cold climate, enjoy your winter hibernation. It has its redeeming qualities. Really, it does.

Sue I hope that you have a wonderful birthday! I am in the same camp, but this year has started off with some health issues, which don't make for a fun time of life :-( Enjoy your day!
