I SORTA HAVE A NEW NAME--OR AT LEAST A NEW WAY TO SIGN MY NAME AND HOPEFULLY NOW I WILL BE A "DI" BY MYSELF!!!!!!!
Oh you ask what is it?????? Well--you will have to read down to end of the post to see and be sure to let me know if you like it or not???? Thanks!!!!
Ok I did my "looking back" at 2009 and I decided there is only one way to describe it ---WOW--WHAT A RIDE!!!!!----I can not believe how much I did get finished and I can not believe how much I have started and need to finish!!!!!
I finished over 62 projects--complete--at least on my end--some of the embroidery pieces I did was shop samples and I only had to do that part--but each pattern had several blocks to it--so it was a large project just in itself!!!!
And I did not begin to count all the block of the month's blocks that I have started for all the bom's I was in last year--some are all done--just need to be put together--some I still need to do more blocks!!!!
Plus it was a year with some surprises in it--first my Little sister moved here from SC in January and in June she actually moved into the Jefferson here!!!!
In February there was TWO big changes in my life (as if having little sister here was enough!!!) I started my first blog site---AND---I won a 10 year disability case---yep took 10 years--but it is finally over--from that phone call on there was some changes--and as a bonus for all the "waiting" I did get a couple nice 'extra" checks--and that meant some changes--like being able to get a newer much needed computer--faster Internet services and some needed household equipment and lots of new quilting stuff!!!!!
But there was some "hard" times too---my health issues continue to keep me a Prisoner at home--(but I really do enjoy being a Hermit--I can quilt everyday)
The heart ache of seeing one of your best friends and fellow neighbors suffer with cancer and all you can do is try to make her laugh at life and make her a cup of tea each day!!!
I am sooo excited I actually have the first BOM for 2010 all done---yep---
Isn't this the cutest block--course I love lady bugs--so that does help!!!!!
And I did get some "picking" up done in the sewing/bedroom today and I finally got the clean sheets on the bed that have been sitting beside the bed since Tuesday!!!!!
Oh--here is a picture of the bag of crushed walnut shells that I got at the Pet-co yesterday!!
And here is my Hoosier all decorated with my snowmen for the winter and let me tell you it was VERY COLD HERE TODAY WITH THE WIND CHILL WAY BELOW "0"---OUCH!!!!!
OKay Lady Bug says it is time to reveal the new name-----so here goes----
Hugs, Di & co.
What do you think?????
