Another Year Has Ended

I know, it's been almost a year since I posted here. I found that this blogging business was just too time consuming for me. I have been devoting my precious free time to my crafts instead.

It's been a busy year and I have no complaints because things could be worse, especially the way the economy is. I was able to transfer from the NY office to the NJ office of my agency. It's been great being home every night and not sitting hours in traffic on the Belt Pkwy trying to get home. On the other hand I do miss Manhattan because I commuted via public transportation.

I was able to take a few vacations. I went on a cruise through the Panama Canal in April. Last month I visited the 50th state, Hawaii for my 50th birthday with a stop in San Francisco for a few days on the way back home.

I have a new granddaughter. Airyana Aliyah was born last month. I now have three grandchildren, yikes! I refuse to feel old, LOL!

I've been involved in a relationship that hasn't developed the way I'd hoped it would. I chalked it up to the fact that it wasn't meant to be.

On the crafting side, I have completed a few crochet and knitting projects over the year. I really took to quilting however and have been spending a lot of time sewing and taking quilting classes. What a lot of fun. I now have a fabric stash along with the yarn one.

Anyway for some reason I just decided to do a quick post here. I wish everyone a Happy, Prosperous and Crafty New Year!!
