Today is the last day of 2008. Boy did we get a grand surprise! Kevin was hired at a full time postition and we are just beaming with joy! Thankfully our unemployment time did not last very long, but it still takes double the time to get all caught up and moving along smoothly again. I wish to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers....they really help deal with everything knowing others are supporting and caring.

I do not really "celebrate" new years eve, but I think that tonight I will at least make a special dinner and welcome in the new year with a fun movie. I rarely manage to stay awake that late and I am pretty positive that Kevin will not last since his day began at 4 am. But I wish you all a marvelous and happy new year.

After glancing over some of my finished quilts this year, I believe this one is my favorite. I chose wonderful fabrics that worked together and did not make very many mistakes in the construction.


  1. Hi Brenda, This is very good news--congratulations to Kevin! You two must be so happy! May God richly bless you in 2009. Beautiful quilt, too!
