Tie up all of the loose ends

The end of 2014 brings a sense of closure, both project-wise and emotionally.

I've had a bit of time off from orchestra work after a busy (as usual) holiday season, so I've done a little catching up on small projects.

A fresh supply of eyeglass cases.

These are a great way to use up scraps of fabric and batting (and I have plenty of both).

And the latest version of the Bohemian Baby quilt, with a color scheme of pink, lime green and black and white.

Also, I'm attempting to tie up all of the emotional loose ends from 2014.  Reconciling a year of baby steps, and quantum leaps of faith (see this post ).  I'm hoping for significantly less excitement in 2015.

But I know these things going into the new year:
I can finally say with certainty:  I'm alive again, and it feels great.
In 2015, I am enough.

Happy New Year!


  1. Aww, Linda :( I'm sorry I completely missed the fact that you were going through such a yucky time this year. I lost so much social interaction here online this year while I was working on my thesis and finishing my degree. It's the pits that you've had to go through a divorce. I really admire your determination and success in moving forward and finding your way in the new state of being. Definitely get that sentiment completely internalized that You Are Enough - but actually, make sure to tell yourself often that you are One Pretty Darn Cool Person! I mean, most people just pull in and nurse themselves instead of doing things like giving summer hours to that center. Here's to an upcoming year of better living!! (And I look forward to watching your creativity outlets)

  2. What a gracious comment Lynn, thank you! Here's to hoping we all tell ourselves the right things in 2015! Happy quilting!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your very tough year. I agree with Lynn that you are one pretty darn cool person! You are going to make it. Hang in there. I hope the new year brings blessings beyond your wildest dreams. Hugs to you.

  4. Hugs and best wishes to you too Karen, and thank you for the kind comment. And no worries about those blessings-- they're already here :)
