I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I loved having all three of my little birdies home at the same time, even if it was only for a short time. My oldest son Atli came home from college for the first time since August and we had a great time together. It´s really incredible to see how fast these kids grow up....and yes, the NO Shave November is not helping my cause! As I went shopping with Atli I was determined to tell everyone that he was my little brother because he really doesn´t look like he could be my son! But of course I didn´t.....I am so proud to be his Mama:)
There is so much for me to be thankful for as we head into December (The way bestest month of the year!). It is going to be a busy month, with it´s ups and downs I am sure, but here´s to hoping that the ups will override any lows and make it a fantastic month! Here are a few of the things ahead.
Today is actually the first day of Radiation treatment for my husband. We are ready to tackle this like other challenges. It is going to be a 6 week treatment so he won´t be finished until January. He is determined to go through it with gusto and without side effects. Determination can take you very far right? Hopefully he will breeze through it.
My birthday is coming up next week. Yes, its a big one. Heading into a new decade! I am not scared or depressed about it....at least not yet. I think I´m ready to welcome it with open arms because with experience comes value right? I have plans to spend some quality time with great girlfriends in a warmer climate to celebrate next week:) Can´t wait for that!
My new fabric arrived on Friday and I am already digging in. This line is called Nordic Vision and will be available in stores next spring. I am absolutely loving it and of course I think it´s the best one yet! Even though I always say that, this one is really great:) I will show you some peeks soon...stay tuned and make sure you are a fan on our GE Designs Facebook page to get the first look.
I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and the best way to show gratitude is to pay it forward. That is why I am packing up this stack of quilts to donate to the survivors of hurricane Sandy. If you have quilts laying around that you are not using, please consider this great cause. My friend Victoria Findlay Wolfe is spearheading this effort and has been so inspiring to watch on this journey. The Acacia Network will only be receiving quilts until December 7th so hop on the bandwagon with me and make a difference by providing the warmth of a quilt for someone in need. Here is all the info:
