The good and the bad of 2009

Well, here it is the New Year of 2010. I’ve been thinking back over the past year and things that happened in the last 12 months. Some of it has been great and then there is of course the bad memories of 2009. It’s been 11 months today that my Floyd lost his life to an asthma attack. I still think about him daily. I’m still working on the quilt top that I’m naming after him too. (the snails trail one) I am at least to the point of just needing to sew the borders on. I have them pieced, but they are just sitting there waiting to be sewn onto the quilt. Maybe this year! LOL!!

I was looking at my UFO list and guess how many UFO’s I finished last year? If you guessed 0 you’d be right!!!!!!! I did not finish one thing of my own last year……….. I started a few new things, but what’s new? I can always start a new project, it’s finishing them that I never seem to accomplish………….

On the bright side of the year, I won my first ever ribbon at MQS. Yeah!! It was 3rd place and I was totally shocked!!! I never thought I would ever win at MQS with all the great quilters that enter at that show!!!! Doris then entered the quilt at the AQS show in Des Moines, Iowa and it got a blue ribbon there. Of course that was because of Doris’ beautiful and perfect applique work!! On the down side of that show, coming home on the interstate, we hit a deer! But on the bright side, we were all OK and the car was drivable. It didn’t look to good, but it got us home!!!

We entered the quilt into the Innovations show, but didn’t win any ribbons there. Next it’s going to the Road to California show. We are having fun with this quilt. In fact 2 weeks from today, Doris and I are going to fly out to California to attend the show. I’ve never been to California, so I’m excited about going. I’ve always wanted to go to the Road show, but never have, so we figured since our quilt was there, now is the time to go! Plus it’s warmer there than it is here!!!!!!!

We got hit with a blizzard on Christmas eve. The ground is still covered with snow. YUCK!! I hate snow and cold weather. We are only supposed to have highs in the teens all week!!!!!!! Come on summer!!!!!!!! Hurry up and get here!!!

I’m not making any new years resolutions, because I never seem to keep them! LOL!! But I do hope to get caught up on customer quilts and hopefully finish at least a couple of my UFO’s. ROFL!!!!!!! Well, I can dream I guess!!!!

I also hope to write more often on here. Not that anybody reads this, but….if you do………thanks.

That’s it for now. Have a great day, and I hope you have a great 2010!!

Theresa (in COLD snowy Kansas)
