‘Twas the eve of the new year,
And all through the house
Every creature was coughing,
Yes, even the mouse!
That’s as far as I’m going with that thought! Yes, Van and I are still fighting whatever this bug is. We had very nice holiday gatherings with family and friends, spending more time on the mainland than we have in a long time.
For the last few days, I’ve been playing with my beads and my new organizational set up. Something I’ve wanted to try was beading over a bottle, and I’ve puttered away at it a bit. Tomorrow, I will start cutting out the pieces for the Bernina Fashion Show 2007 ensemble, and, if my energy holds up, start a bit of the background sewing. We’re not allowed to talk about what we’re making, or show pictures of it anywhere, before the show in October, but I may comment on it from time to time.
On Monday I will put pen to paper and write a couple of lists – one of what I have actually accomplished in 2006, and the other of what I hope to accomplish in 2007. This will encompass not only my artistic work, but other areas as well. Some of it may get posted here, but I’m one of the few people left in the world who believes in the preservation of personal privacy, so some will most definitely not be posted here.
For now, let me wish you all a very joyeous, peaceful, and contented new year.
