Miles Thomas was born to Andrew and Amy ten days before Christmas and it was just such a joy to hold and snuggle with someone so new. He's a nice baby, more even-tempered (so far) than his brother had been.
I worked on the granny squares; there are twenty of them finished and they are trimmed to size. Three of them may need to be redone as the trimming invaded what would be the seam allowance. I've set them aside to ponder. My present hand-sewing project is the Dresden plates.
The photo is one from our Christmas card, celebrating my quilting's taking on a more modern look and Joe's taking up serious woodworking -- he made not just that Adirondack chair but three more as well as two ottomans. And You Know Who just had to be on our card.
I think I mentioned that Judy and I have resigned from our previous guild and joined Philly Modern and are finding it to be so much fun! The membership is smaller, and I feel as though I am actually already getting to know some of the people. We have a Secret Angel project going on now; I finished the gifts for my recipient yesterday and will share photos once the exchange has occurred.
So here we are in a new year. As usual, I make no resolutions but have a few hopes. I have some ideas for new sewing projects and vague plans for the UFOs.
To those who read this little blog of mine, I wish you only good, good things in this new year! And thank you for visiting . . . .
