The happy dance--
I made it through my first week of being a Night Angel--
and though I almost 'fell' apart--
I made it--

OK--where are we--
Oh--got another gift in the mail--
a friend from up north sent this to me--
it is one of the best bird books I have seen--
found the names of at least 2 birds that I had not been able to find in other books--
thanks, Melinda--

my fabric order came in--
This I got for my son--
Monopoly fabric--I need to see if he wants a pillow case or throw pillows out of it--
His first and main love is music and the electric guitar--
His second main love is the game Monopoly!!!

and look what jumped into the package with his fabric--
 How do you like that purple bird one--
all of these were end bits and the price was right!!!
And I just fell head over heels in love with this one--
have no idea yet how I will use it--but????
And look--it has my new word on it for 2017--
so far '2' have guessed right!!!
And looky here--
I got that pair of socks finished last night--
good for me!!!

And here is the small Christmas quilt that I plan--
Plan being the 'word' here--
to hand quilt starting this evening and hope it is finished by Sunday--
and that is a tall order--!!!!
cause remember tomorrow I have to 'dig' up the ufo's and make my list!!!

So this is what I have been up to--
what about you????
love and laughter, di


  1. Ooohh, very pretty new acquisitions. My Guy got a copy of Peterson's Guide on birds for Christmas. He hasn't used it yet, but it's sitting by the computer waiting for it's first use.

  2. We have so many beautiful birds here. I've been watching Harriett the bald eagle and her eggs. Waiting for them to hatch like the rest of the world. I love that her nest isn't very far from us. We see lots of bald eagles in our back yard. They're glorious birds.

  3. Is Joy your new word? I need to think of one now too! LOVE the bird book! I have to look up birds all the time! Happy New year sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  4. What a perfect gift for you! I'm sorry I didn't think of it. Glad you survived the new job. Just think of the yarn and fabric that you'll be able to buy.

  5. I"m catching up on my reading Di, lovely to see what you've recieved and been up to! The socks look great and nice to see you full steam ahead on more projects :-) Wishing you a Happy New Year, full of Joy!!

  6. Happy New Year to you, Di! Hope 2017 is very good to you! HUGS!
