It Feels So Good

To finish something - it's been a while! I've had this little quilt loaded on Tillie for at least two months and I finally got it quilted and bound. All it needs now is a label and it's ready to go to the recipient. I'm going to call it "It's A Small World" as the dolls remind me of the ones on the ride at Disneyworld.


I'm not big on resolutions - I've been resolving to be thin for at least 30 years and it hasn't happened yet. However, I am going to try and resolve to start NOW and make gifts for everyone on my gift list for the coming year. I've seen so much inspiration over the last month on blogs and websites that I'm really inspired to get busy instead of leaving it until the last minute.



This song by the Goo Goo Dolls came up on my iPod this afternoon and I thought the lyrics appropriate for New Year's Eve. Happy New Year to you all and may 2009 bring you health, happiness and a little fairy to finish all your UFOs.


"Better Days"
And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And designer love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
I need someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child who saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I haven't quilted a thing since the last day of November - I'm heading down right now and am quilt to finish a small HeartStrings quilt tonight!

What a moving story about the highway. The QOV looks great - don't you love those swirls?
