Christmas this year was great. I rarely am gifted with anything connected to creativity and this year I received several things, one of them being this beautiful piece of fabric art...

I think you can click the picture to embiggen if you'd like. I love this piece and it was accompanied by not one, but two, online classes from Craftsy, both of which will help me to learn to create my own fabric pictures. Woo hoo!!!
One of the other special gifts I received was a beautiful antique gold necklace, gifted to me by our daughter-in-love. The necklace belonged originally to her paternal great grandmother and is a family heirloom for sure. It made me cry that she would want to give me such a precious piece of her family history. Once I have it cleaned I will share a picture so you can see how wonderful it is.
Your quote today is from Arnold Bennett...."The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose"
Finally, I want to extend my very best wishes to you and yours for the very best that the new year can hold. May it be filled with joy, laughter, love and many hours filled with new leaves.
