Creekside Quilting Newsletter 01/02/2018
Happy New Year! Oh, what an exciting time of year! A chance to look back and reflect on all of the gifts and burdens from 2018 and the opportunity to look forward to learn from our challenges and start anew! This time of year is filled with resolutions and goals, hopes and dreams for achieving our expectations. Wanting to grow and learn to become a newer and a better person. I love this time of year because it is meant for us to slow down and reflect. When the snow falls, it brings a peace and tranquility that can not be matched any other time of the year. During January, we cuddle up to stay warm, which brings a level of constraint and less freedom to run and do. This time of year is my favorite time of year because I stay home and sew more and I'm hoping that this January, some of my UFO's get done so I can move onto new projects, new fabrics, new patterns, and new challenges. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to hearing about your holiday adventures when you visit the store! So let January and the new year start off with new hopes and challenges that lead us to another chapter of our lives.
What's New @ Creekside Quilting?
