Happy New Year!

I do realize that its almost February, I really do. Its just that it takes me this long to fully realize that its the new year, catch up and clean up after Christmas, get the kids off to school after the break, begin to think about better organizing my life and generally be ready for that "happy new year" sentiment that so many people are ready for on January 1st. I guess I am just not a January 1st kind of gal! I consider it a great victory if I feel ready for the year by the end of the month. I guess I have a week left!

So owning up to who I really am and not feeling bad about what I haven't made happen, I thought I might take a look through 2012 in the way I know I can right now. In pictures…

So I looked through my blog and picked out a few favorite shots from each month.

Today, January, 2012. 


Tonite, February. Here's to 2012!

Even if I'm not quite ready to say Happy New Year just yet.

P.S. I do have another, more personal, post to share about the year 2012 but that one is taking me some emotional time to write so bear with me a bit longer.

    I just love your patterns, your fabric and appreciate everything you do to invest time and thought into the world of quilting. You have inspired me so many countless times….and I want you to know that my 2013 wouldn’t be half as sunny without “Fig Tree Quilts” in it. Thank you!

    Wonderful photos! I’ll look forward to February’s pictures. I am never ready for the new year, either, so it’s good to have sewing company in that regard.

    I understand your feelings and sentiment completely. I’m not a fan of Jan 1st either. Takes me a while to warm up to the idea of a new year.
