Happy New Year!

This graphic comes from Madame Samm, the best cheerleader
I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Why do we blog hop hostesses call ourselves
Because we are here to encourage YOU to:
TRY new methods of sewing and quilting,
FREE yourself from the fear of being less than perfect,
CHALLENGE yourself to be creative,
SHARE a laugh or two,
SURPRISE us with your talent, and
MEET new blogger friends who will cheer you on, too!

The 2013 Blog Hops will show you some great ideas and
 help you to accomplish (maybe even finish) a project. 
Blog hops happen about twice a month, so sign-up for one...
I'm sure there will be something just for 

As for the New Year....
2012 had some crappy (yes, I said "crappy") things happen,
but we have to hope that 2013 will show us the good in
people and remind us everyday that for every evil-minded
person there are millions of good people who
will uplift us with their good deeds.

Disastrous events will happen (weather related or otherwise)
and some will be catastrophic. But as history has shown
us, we will see amazing acts of kindness and heroism
during these times. We can prepare for some of those events
with food storage and emergency preparation, but there will be
times when even our imagination cannot
prepare us to know what to do or what to think.

My hope is that 2013 will bring us a lot more of these....
