New Year and Time to Remember

Happy New Year to everyone.  I know it looks like Madeline has already celebrated and crashed -- but rest assured, she's just playing.

This past year has been very hard on so many people.  Maddie and I wish for 2010 to be better for all of us, especially those who have had such a hard time in 2009. 

I know I have not been the best blogger this  year.  I look back through the archives and there are some months I've been barely present.  I hope to do better this year. I want to thank all of you who stop by, look at my projects or at Madeline's latest antics -- we both appreciate you.   I need more time management skills -- if I can do it at work, I should be able to apply that to my own time as well.

Also, please spare a thought for my friend who lost her beloved Duchess (kitty) girl (18 years) yesterday.  She's playing on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge with her brother Jester.  While we are happy the two of them are together, we are terribly sad at being left behind.

Waiting. . . .


I've got my pretty collar on -- the one with the jingle bells.  I'm sitting here at this window waiting for Santa Claws.  I'd like some nip, a new mousey toy, and some nip.  Did I forget to ask for nip?

Please come soon Santa -- this collar is not comfortable and I refuse to wear both the hat and the collar at the same time.

Beginning to Look. . . .

It's that season.  The end of craft show season -- YAY!!!  I did well this season of shows.  But I'm always glad when the season is over.

Do you like Madeline's picture?  This took me over two weeks of working with her to get this one shot.  Believe me, this is a one in a million shot.  And that's all I got -- was the one shot.  Of course, that's all I asked her for (please, please Maddie, let mommy just take one picture, okay?  Just one picture pretty girl?).  She sat absolutely still for the first shot.  I told her what a good girl she was.  Then asked for a second picture.  Well, she flew off the sewing machine table quicker then quick and that was it.

But I do think she looks too adorable in her little Santa hat.
