HOW DID YOU ...

........start this New Year?

I was sewing....OH YES! Gus..


may love his ball.....


but he hates the fireworks! Even with enough doggy calms to fell an elephant!!! So I sat up with him (and Sam of course! although his snoring drowned out some of the bangs !!) , I am not good at just sitting ... so, I started work on some quilting...


I ... as you know... don't tend to PLAN ... dirty 4 letter word!... so trying out new designs is done on the quilt!..


fortunately I STILL like the way it came out when I saw it this morning xx He-He xx

For the first time in WEEKS the sun is shining this morning ... and NO rain xx Looks as if the NEW Year is starting off well xx

Hope your New Year got off to a good start x

Keep smiling

Diane xx

Happy New Year Diane

I too was with the animals fireworks started at 10 pm! Upset our little Jack Russell Missy who kept barking back at the bangs and got highly agitated and the cats were none too happy either. In end Missy came down and stayed with me snuggled on the sofa with the cats and they seemed to settle better.

Love your freehand border design it looks lovely.

Take care and I hope this year is evyerthing you want it to be and so much more

Love and light
