Happy New Year!

Posted by Sally Red on January 24, 2014 at 10:55 AM

By now, you have decided which of those new year's resolutions you are going to stick with and really feel accomplished!  Actually, we SHOULD look at every day as a "new" beginning and the first day of the rest of our lives. Make a resolution to try something new every day...even if it is just being thankful.  We take so much for granted.

  Here is my precious Parker at her first trip to the zoo in Tyler.  She will be encountering many firsts this year...and EVERY DAY she discovers something new.  I think we are never too old to discover new things.

Today I discovered how to change and clean the filters on my new vacuum cleaner!  And, speaking of cleaning, check out this fab find!  Go to the automotive center of your WM and look for a ten pack of cleaning cloths.  They are white with a blue stripe and cost $9.97.  Take them home and wash them and they will be the best polishing, cleaning, dusting rags you could ever want.  Love them.  As M would say, "They are a good thing".

Plans are already underway for the next Spring Fling trunk show at Sew What! quilt shop in Palestine.  This week I taught Embroidery 101 classes and had a great time with a wonderful group of ladies.  February classes are on the calendar for xs and embossing on the embroidery machine, and classes for learning feet.  Cute projects accompany the feet classes and I can hardly wait!

While I have the domestic diva thing going on, I am backing up my embroidery design files to a flash drive, an external hard drive and my laptop.  It will take a good part of the day, but is good insurance in the event of a crash for my design investment.  If you have not done so in the last few months, make it a resolution to regularly back up your prized computer possessions!!!

We had a light dusting of snow here last night and it is cold outside.  Having to run humidifiers to keep things from drying out (like my nose and sinuses, and the furniture).  I am hoping all of you reading this are safe and warm and well.

For my embroidery buddies, EL has some pretty free framed floral designs for this wknd only.  Missi at Skeldale House has started her new free font...a patriotic xs set.  If you need to nibble while you stitch, check out the Biscoff chocolate covered cookies at WM.  The plain ones are wonderful, too.  Happy Stitches!  s

Sally, Your classes sound amazing! Only wish they were closer so I could attend. Have you ever posted any of your classes or projects on your web site? Have you ever offered them for sale? Would love to learn how to emboss the "correct" way and could certainly benefit from learning about my "feet". Thanks for your posts. Stay warm! Donna Belcher
