Well, here we are...a new year.
I am happy that 2021 is over and we have another chance to do better now that we have reached 2022.
Personally, I feel I pretty much wasted the last year. Nothing seemed to be right...I lost focus, energy, the will to accomplish things, and most important to me....enthusiasm. Then, there was also the fear.
It was the year I became old.
Just to add to the craziness.....I fell and broke my right shoulder.
That gave me plenty of time to see just how far I had "fallen" in this little world I had made for myself.
I couldn't do anything...I am right handed. I never knew how important a shoulder actually is.
During the last four months of the year, I realized I had to get over myself.
Physical therapy made me also realize I might have a little trouble quilting and embroidering and writing and all the other things I had enjoyed up until 2021.
So, I've done a lot of thinking.
Last few years, if you've read my blog at all, you will remember that I have loved rescuing quilts.
It occurred to me that unless I put out some effort, my own unfinished work would have to be rescued by someone else.
How sad would that be?
So, I made the decision that I had to work harder at the therapy. And, along with that, I needed to get back to writing to YOU.
Many times over the last eight years, you have given me a reason to do things.
Last year, I let you down. So, this year, I'm going to try harder to include my work and my small audience back into Bird Nest Cottage. I hope you will visit.
I brought it...and my frame and put it right in the middle of my living room. I can't avoid it now.
And, later tonight, I plan on trying to actually quilt on it.
And, you will find me posting more often.
See you in a week.
VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm wishing you a safe, warm, and happy heart in 2022
