Have you ever checked out the friends that get together over on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color with their lists of things that bring them joy? If not you really should. 😉
My list of things that bring me joy or happiness is probably pretty common.
I love it when my daughter surprises me with an unexpected FaceTime call when she is looking after her granddaughter Clarke.
I really like the fact that my grandson and his partner ensure Nanny gets to babysit or have overnight visits (they are in the same bubble) every week or two. I get almost daily photos from April and being a proud great grandmother, I love to share.
I really like having our Guild Meetings by telephone or Zoom and have fun seeing faces. This month we are hosting a local artist, who does amazing natural dye and design work. It should be a fun bit of inspiration to pick up everyone’s spirits since our holiday season looks so differently this year.
I love it when our retired doctor covers for our new physician. He had treated DH for over 30 years so we don’t have to review DH’s full medical history every time he needs a consultation. Recently our physician had made a change in meds. It resulted in DH only sleeping 2-3 hours a night, could not lie flat without having heart palpitations and shortness of breath. The call to the office today had the covering doctor calling back at 6:30 tonight and a course of testing and consultations will start tomorrow.
I like having enough fabric still in my stash to be able to change my mind when cutting fabrics for a pattern test.
I had pulled and cut these fabrics:
They just weren’t making me smile so today I pulled and cut new fabrics and am ready to start sewing tomorrow. Here’s the new fabrics:
Once again I saw this on FB and had to share;
To me, this completely sums up the quilting community, both in person and on line. I love sharing my quilty fun (and yes my real life news/adventures) with all of you that read my blog. I find so much inspiration and support in this community and love visiting the blogs of people I admire and follow. I think that with all that has happened in this crazy world in 2020 it would have been so much harder to cope without all of you. So thank you for being part of my world. I really like our visits! 😉 Carol
