Random 2023, January First

So proud of my daughter. This pig belonged to my grandmother....that would have been Emily's great-grandmother....She too, would have been proud of Emily's love of antiques and family treasures.
Marie came by last week to use my electric Go cutter.  She  cut out 30 bowl cozies...So fun!!
Still  more scrappy potholders...I cannot stop
Finally Samson's baby quilt top is finished...Jeeze...took me forever.
Is it the old phone camera or the old operator.?? My pictures are just awful
And, today I put together 30 tissue covers.  
They are ready to have the tissues inserted tomorrow.
All this done on the first day of the  year.
Because one of my support groups had a 24 hour  meeting...Every hour, on the hour from groups all around the world,  USA, Canada, England, Turkey, Israel, Iran among some...It was amazing.  I attended six last night going to bed at 2 am....Getting up at 9 am this morning, I went to 8 more today.
It was so terrific..amazing actually.  I have friends from all around the world!!
Best part, is that I put my I-pad up next to the sewing machine, put it on mute unless I was speaking and completed some of my work/tasks from 2022
A win-win for  me!!
I am so grateful that 2023 at least had a good start.

PS  I even did 30 Sit and Stand exercises...

Rockin' the new year! You've had a rebirth. Even if Pearl comes knocking you have great resources to send her on her way.

You had a great start for the year! They say whatever you were doing on January 1st you will do all year, so it looks like you will be smiling and creating and keeping in touch with friends.

Wow, you certainly had a spurt of creative energy. Feels good, doesn't it. Now, don't get down on yourself if you can't keep up with it, this shows you can move ahead.
