Happy New Year!

From our family to yours!
Christmas has flown by and it was wonderful to spend the time with our family. We've had a houseful since Christmas and have loved having everyone here. Andrew has gone back to his house now, but we still have Grace, Ellen and Ellen's boyfriend Jarred here. They'll be heading back to school on Friday. I'm hoping to do a little stitching tonight while waiting for the ball to drop...I haven't done any sewing since I finished that last customer quilt! I have been knitting a little...I hope I can finish the scarf for Ellen before winter is over.
I wish all of you a healthy and happy new year...filled with the people and things that you love.
