It's been a good year!

 Dear 2010. 
Thank you for being a VERY CREATIVE & FABULOUS YEAR!
Making QUILTS makes me jump for JOY!

Meeting and making new friends is EVEN BETTER!

You've been a year of community.

I've built lasting friendships with people from around the world.
And for that I am so grateful.

All my blog friends have become like an extended family.
My 15 minutes play family, 

My dear friends, Shelly, Andrea, Shelly, Amy, Jackie, Helen, 
Karen, Em, LeeAnn, Thea, Bonnie, etc etc etc.... 
so many it's hard to list them all, 
Have been so special and inspirational.

My friends who supported my BASICS program.
Each and every one of them are angels... (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ALL ARE!)
( I still can't believe how many people we helped!   

New Friends who have donated to the cause for Charity Quilts:
I'm grateful their generous beings have come into my life...

and Fat Quarterly for being so sweet to post about me! 
And AMY, and Lizzie, and everyone who posted about the BASICS project.
THANK YOU, I am so grateful.

 All the new Friends of the NYC METRO MOD QUILT GUILD
It's been a joy welcoming them into my home.

I finally feel I am doing what I need to be doing.

I do hope 2011 reads this, 
and will continue to bring more fabulous people into my life.

I hope that it will bring JOY to my friends as well.
That their lives will  find balance where JOY will over power the 
hardships the last two years has put up on them.

Even though you, 2010,  You
put me in my 40's this year, I will forgive you...

I savor the years, even as they fly by...

As the years just seem to keep getting better.

I'm not sure where the road will lead in 2011. 
But I promise to stay open to all it's possibilities...

Here's to GOOD HEALTH,  
(and more QUILTS!) for 2011~
