Busy, Busy,Busy

Good morning everyone in blog land!
I hope everyone enjoyed the last couple weeks of holidays, family gatherings and ringing in the new year.
We ( DH and I ) had a quite New Years eve. We went to the local bar and had a few drinks with a 2 other couples and was home about 9:00 and in bed by 10:30. So much for ringing in the new year for us.

Well we are empty nesters again. Our middle daughter moved back home with us last August after a bad breakup. We were glad to have her back in our area and too spend some time with her. But at 30 years old she just needed her own space and found a cute little 2 bedroom apartment that she could afford to rent. So this last week end was spent moving all her stuff out. And now Mom & Dad have a little more space also. Yesterday I spent the day cleaning her old room out and packing up the stuff she left behind and haul it over to her apartment. It was not a lot of stuff but I wanted her to decide if she wanted it or not, she can throw it away herself. And the funny part was as I was cleaning I found I had tuck in a corner of the room a scroll with a Paula Vaughan picture that I had started about 10  years ago and I had been looking high and low for it and could not figure out what I had done with it.This will go on my to do list to finish it this year. More on the picture in a later post.

I have decided this year instead of starting 15 new projects for CJC2013 I will doing CJCWIP 2013. As you can see on my side bar I did not complete all of my challenge from last year so they will be worked on and finished this year. Plus a few other WIP that I show you in past posts. (Here) Plus others that I come across. I was not organized at the end of last year and made a list of what I plan to work on this year because I didn't plan to join in until I saw the had the CJC WIP group and thought this would be perfect to get some projects finished up. So I will be working on a list today and posting it later.

Time to run some errands and some laundry done.
I wish everyone a Blessed New Year!
Happy Stitching

I have taken a peek at what you have done in the past, very beautiful work you do! That is good that your daughter found a place she can call hers. In the years to come I will know what it feels like to have an empty nest when my only child goes to college when he finishes high school in a few years. Happy new year!

Oh that is always fun to find forgotten items!
Good for you on your plans for this year. I notice many ladies plan to finish up WIPs and work from stash. =)
