Nothing is ever new, I've realized, except everything.

This is new for me.  I'm designing my first quilt from top to bottom, so to speak.  It's for a dear friend of mine.  I'm enjoying the process very much so far, I must say.

So far...
 And I am diligently plugging away at Liz's Triangle Madness QAL.  
250 HST's and counting...

 And:  I had my first quilting accident.  I was distracted and put a machine needle through my finger.  See that mark on my middle finger there?  the needle went right through the nail, broke off, and I had to have it extracted at the ER.
 That's the broken off needle.  It gives an idea of how much metal was stuck in my finger.
I could show you a really graphic shot of my finger right after it all happened, but that really isn't necessary now.  Needless to say, I am grateful for all my digits, and for my overall health.  And for my husband, who insisted on bringing me to the ER even though all I wanted was a shot of whiskey and a pair of pliers.

Happy New Year.  Don't take anything for granted.  Everything is a Gift.  Accept it, and make the best use of it as you can.
Best to You and Yours in this randomly selected set of 365 +/- days....
