Happy New Year

 As I reflect on the past year, my 50th, I
am thankful to be here.  It really was the best
and worst year rolled into one.  January 2015 I was
in NYC, and saw my two daughters and best
friends.  Had a work celebration with my son
Chris in Fla,   and a great summer vacation with my
nephew Ryan in Myrtle Beach.   I will focus
on the good and not the health challenges  from
mold.  The outreach from people around the world
from the stitching community is something I will
never forget.  Although I am not where I want
to be,  I am thankful I am not where I was in
September.  My happiest moment of the year
was seeing the Lion King in Manhattan with my
two best friends.  A great 50th celebration.
 I was blessed with receiving a whole box
of stash from my friend Peggy who
passed away in the fall.  I finished the 4th house.
This piece started by Peggy  will be finished
by me.   I am sure she is smiling from heaven.

 My 50th year.

A new year and a new beginning.
May everyone have a blessed new year.
