I know I am getting old when every January 1-I ask myself "where did the year go"?
But time waits for no one and just continues to march on.
I do hope to get LOTS of sewing/knitting done this year and of course the usual New Year resolutions of eating better, moving more, acquiring get the idea.

I finished last weekend my Aunt Phillie rug , which has been in the making for maybe 2 years.
Now this is a New Year's resolution I would love to accomplish----getting all my UFO's completed. Oh that would be soooo WONDERFUL.
I also finished the Tumbler reproduction quilt. I put another black border on that is not in the photos

The picture of the guy and the dog, I have no idea who they are....hehe
We were in this establishment that has the BEST Chicago hotdogs ( here in northern Colorado )
and this dog was sitting at the bar! Made me laugh and I had to get a picture of him. The guy kinda just jumped in the pic. It all made me smile.

Smile more yes, now that's a great NY resolution.

Have a wonderful day and hope you continue to work on your NY resolutions in 2 weeks time!
