Looking both ways

January is a good time for reflecting on the activities of the past year & planning ahead, but January has come & gone…  One of my favorite quotes is “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans.”

Last summer my husband developed an extremely painful staph infection in his spine & spent weeks in the hospital. His recovery has been slow & family members are helping me with his full-time care.

I continue to quilt; it’s like therapy when I need to corral my thoughts & feelings. During 2014 I completed 70 projects (some were small), & did longarm quilting on 100 quilts for customers, charity & myself. I also taught three classes (a fourth was cancelled due to low enrollment).
