Grateful Musings

This is my first truly official month of being a "Charming Girl" and with that comes the November Tag. Kelly asked us to share some things we are grateful for AND one of our other hobbies.
The other hobby is fairly easy- I've fallen under the spell of scrapbooking/minibook making and altered art. I won't bore anyone here with endless musings about my other works of art- I'll let you discover it IF you want. I keep a second blog which hasn't been updated much. You are welcome to visit should you wish. I've contemplated merging the two, but I find myself here on this blog more often and feel it is more a representation of who (and where) I am right now in my life.
So on to gratitudes. I feel that my life is blessed in so many ways. I am grateful for:
1. a wonderful family who put up with all my creative messes
2. an extended family who can brighten even the darkest of days
3. laughter
4. a warm and cozy home;my (poor neglected) gardens
5. becoming a grandmother for the first time, and having the ability to care for my little man several days a week
6.Friends who round out my life and make it richer each and every day.
7. Becoming a Charming Girl just before the group was closed to new members!

I am truly a lucky woman....

Now since November is drawing to a close (how did that happen so fast!!?) I will fess up that I did not get time to complete the small list of November accomplishments I had hoped finish. So with the holiday crazies really coming into high gear I will spend what quiet time I can grab for myself this December continuing to work on both my Jacob Ladder blocks and Baking Day blocks. My half square triangles for the sew-along are still giving me fits of indecision, but I hope to get my mind made up and get the borders finalized by the end of December as well. Then I can get it off to be quilted. I'm looking forward to getting really organized in 2010 and getting lots of those older projects off the shelves and finished. Like the "Little Engine Who Could"..I'm just going to tell myself I know I can!
Happy Stitching

"I know you can, I know you can!!! -- get organized in 2010. I had the same plan, to get organized myself, but then got into all my stash and UFO's, and got snowed under -- not much hope for me, but I'm rooting for you! Can't wait to see your December finishes.

Yes, Kelly! I know I can!! IN fact my studio is in tip top shape as of today, and I am hoping that once the choas of this week is over I can get some sewing in. If not, at least I know that I am in good shape for 2010!!

Nice answers! Oh, and you left me the sweetest comment and I tried to respond to it but it says you are a no-reply blogger (in the email section). I didn't know if you were aware of this, but people who might want to reach you - can't. I'm looking forward to connecting with all the girl's in the club this coming year. Happy New Year!
