Roller Coaster to Smooth Sailing



2012: The year of the Roller Coaster!

It's almost time to turn the page and start a new calendar...
2013 is just a few days away.
I was thinking about all the events in my life this year... there was
some sad posts that I shared and a few that were extra special.
I thought I would share a favorite post or two with you of the ones that were happy...
the birth of my grand daughter and maybe my sunflower quilt that I made for her..

.


And then there was the post of my favorite quilt this year...
You can see it on this post. It was part of my "Summer of Fun", 
a little challenge by Thelma at Cupcakes n Daisies.
It was fun to make a list of projects to tackle for the summer...
and fun to see which ones actually got done!


And then I had a little confession to share on this post:

(this photo was taken at Warrenton Antique Fair
and is owned by Lorri at Cute As Pie Cottage blog)

This was definitely a year of highs and lows.
Isn't life interesting that way?
I can't wait to see what 2013 will be like!
I am hoping that 2013 is the year of "Smooth Sailing"!

Some very good things to be happy about.
I hope this year is smooth sailing for both of us.

Oh, I could use a year of smooth sailing, too. 2011 and 2012 were incredibly rough. Ugh!

Here's to smooth sailing. :-)

I'm all for some smooth sailing! Adorable baby picture, and I'm totally in love with the quilt you made for her. Here's to 2013!

Here's to smooth sailing! And while we're at it, can we make 2013 last a little longer (or at least pass a little more slowly) than 2012 has?!? :)

Lesley said...

Will hope you have that smooth year of sailing! Thanks for your update!

Your little Baby Bee is adorable! So is the quilt you made for her. I'm hoping for a smooth sailing 2013 too. If enough of us get together and wish... maybe we'll all get lucky! Wishing you a New Year that is everything you want it to be.

It's nice to think about the highs. The lows and losses can really get to us without them. A new granddaughter - definitely a high! I don't remember her quilt. I love it! How could I have missed that?

Sherri said...

I so hope you have smooth sailing for 2013! You so deserve it!

Happy New Year Sinta and I have the same feelings about 2012...ups and lows but here we are going on to the next one! And that is so good! I just love that sweet baby bee! Probably buzzing all over the place now! The quilts have been lovely all year too. Glad you shared with us! xo Pam
