Happy New Year Everyone!
The other day I was in the car listening to WNYC, They were talking about many of the customs to bring in the New Year, all over the world. A lot were food-related, like in Spain they eat 12 grapes at midnight... what's that about? Some were spirit-related, like opening all of the windows in your house to free the souls held captive in your home from the year before. And in New York, they were activity related...like the yahoos that drink themselves silly (while freezing their buns off & while having their pockets picked) in Time Square.
Paton and I, we took the "path of least resistance". After a picnic in bed complete with some divine desserts from a favorite Japanese bakery, we cranked the mattress pad way, way up...That's when the real fun began as the kitties became heat seeking missiles under the comforter. We all started to watching a video ...and that's pretty much all I remember.
And no hang over this morning...so it's all good (more energy for other things!)
So here's a fun new project to 'whet your whistle' for the new year. (I never tire of pink, and I'm crazy for my new Floating Petal fabric.) It was commissioned by Jill Meade of Quilts & More magazine...
This sneak peak* is actually part of a room ensemble designed for a girl's room, compete with shams, dust ruffle and a really cute window treatment, if I do say so myself, it's a cutie pie!...A prize goes to the person who guesses the name on the pillow.
Today I'm making my second attempt this winter to fly away for a little R&R with some family and friends. I'm crossing my fingers as I look out again at another gray and stormy, winter's day.
Back in two shakes...H2
*Sara, I was just being "kute", peak as in high(light), get it? But thanks for asking!
