Happy New Year!

    It's the start of another new year....new projects, new patterns to design, new friends to meet. And I frequently find myself wishing for days long ago...when times were slower... and a safer place to be.....when children played simple outside games instead of being video addicts, and home was where Mom was  and usually making something delicious instead of being a working Mom these days. It was a great generation to be part of....I struggle to remain the same and hold the same values. That can be tough in these times but I am optimistic; and I am blessed enough to feel that my wealth is in these wonderful memories that I hold dear.
So here's to a great New Year for all of us! I wish you all good health, happiness and finding treasures that you hold dear to your heart, what ever they may be.

Nancy

  16. Oh Nancy! I couldn't agree with you more. We struggle financially, but it is a choice we made. I am a stay-at-home mom. My kids have really, truly benefited from this. It is tough today. It requires work. Work on the family life!! ♥

  24. Yes life was much better back then. I feel just like you. The part I miss is that neighbors aren't neighborly anymore. We live in the country and its weird to me to not even know each other very much.

  27. Happy New Year to you, Nancy! It is nice to be able to slow the pace just a bit now and then even if we can't live that way all the time. Family and friends are still top priorities for me and always will be.
    Wishing you the very best in the coming year. Looking forward to using your beautiful floss and trims and making up some of your wonderful designs.
