2015 in Review

At the closing of 2015, I can’t help but look back at the highs and lows the year has brought to our home and hearts.

At the top of the list of blessings is our son’s success in his life.  Though his job is often stressful, he seems overall happy and healthy.  We are tremendously proud.

Our most difficult struggle came with DH Bob’s cancer diagnosis.  After two surgeries and multiple treatments, he continues to work at regaining his health.  He improves a bit each day and I pray for continued betterment.  Other than minor issues, my own health has been uneventful.

This year marked our most successful in gardening.  Although we had enough rain to rot most area gardens, our sandy hill garden thrived.  I am so thankful our shelves and freezer are full of the bounty.

The quilts I’ve finished this year include:

  • Bright Hopes baby quilt gifted to Braxton
  • Scrappy Split-16 queen+ quilt for my bed
  • Wonky Stars sofa quilt for the foot of my bed
  • Batik Winding Ways sofa quilt gifted to Hearmon and Theresa

I continue hand stitching on String Pyramids quilt nearly every day.  The twin+ top is almost complete.  There are also some unfinished quilt projects in the stack but I continue to slowly work on them too.

This is also a year that saw me sewing.  I’ve made 2 PJ pants for Jacob and 5 for Bob.  Bob also got a new hooded robe.  Jake has added 5 new shirts to his office wardrobe while my clothing stash increased with 2 long-sleeved tees and a few pairs of shorts.  Yesterday, I finished a stuffed dog bed for Lolita (filled with fabric snips, crumbs and threads.  The cover is removable for washing.  She LOVES it!

Overall, our year was full of blessings and as we ring in the new year, I wish you good health, success, laughter and love.
