Teal Dragon Quilts

A world of Quilts and Dragons!

Another year over

on December 9, 2018

One of my favorite lines from John Lennon’s Happy Christmas.  Well, we still have a few more weeks to get “things” done.  I plan on using every minute!  This is my favorite time of the year on most days.  It’s time to start planning (wish I could have hearts popping out of that word…planning)  the new year.  

In times past, this has been a busy season with no time for planning.  Gigs every weekend from Thanksgiving until Christmas, with rehearsals on most nights.  The life of a free lance musician!  I’m retired now and it’s just starting to become real.

I like being busy.  I like having deadlines, even though it is a love/hate relationship.  But not having to get out when it is cold and rainy is very nice.  I’m trying to figure out how to stay motivated when I have no deadlines.  I do have a few parties that things have to get done before.  My family is getting together and trading gifts for the first time in a while, so I do have to do some shopping/sewing.

I have played my piano everyday this week.  I love my piano, it doesn’t hurt to play and it sounds good.  I’ve tried the violin, but not so good.  I really don’t want to put it aside forever.  I love violin, I love violin music, I love playing the violin.  Sad thoughts.  Playing the violin was a battle I fought with my parents.  They supported my efforts, but I had to fight for getting the lessons.  Piano and Violin lessons were a little above my parents pay grade until I was in high school.  I’m not ready to give up.  Maybe I’ll try some Christmas carols.

Quilting, quilting was all kinds of fun.  Last board meeting for the 2018 QGGH board.  They did a fantastic job and I have loved working with them.  My bee had their Christmas Party and what fun.  (streamers shooting out of that word…fun) We also decided on what challenges we were going to have, and of course I signed up for every one of them!  Coming up is the Guild Holiday Party.  The big thing is our Opportunity Quilt will be drawn for and I will be done with that chair’s responsibilities.  I’ve loaded our pics from 2018 into PhotoStory for slide presentation.  It’s potluck and I still don’t know what I will bring.  Hoping to have a UFO done for the last quarter.

Life is good, Family and Friends are good, Freckles is perfect.  This week, more piano practice and 2019 planning!
