Reflecting back over the year

Oh! I know we still have two months to go before this year is done. But I have been thinking about all that has gone on with this year. Back in January Susie Orman said "2009 will either make you or it will break you". I'm happy to say so far 2009 didn't break me [it came close] I think I have learned a lot this year, and I hope shared with or maybe helped someone along the way.

I have had fun doing the BOM's. I'm excited to get the last two months so I can finish my projects. (However, I will be sad to see them come to an end. It's been fun getting the surprise each month.)

I have found a couple of projects for next year. I will be doing the "Year of Schnibbles" and the quilt group I go to has decided to do a block of the month. I will be posting on those soon. Also, I have another project I might be doing -- But, first I have to do some checking to see if we have a need for it in my area. (more later). I'm on the look out for one other project to do this next year.

The other day I went blog hopping and stopped at Sarah's The last piece
And found something interesting. (Sarah is from Australia -- I would love to go there some day. :o} ) Sarah is doing the "Pay it Forward" program. I found this same thing on a couple of other blogs as well and thought I would bring it home and try it out.

Here are the rules:

1. I will make a little something for the first three people who comment on this post. (Please send me an email with your mailing address so I can send the gift sometime within the next 365 days) It will be a surprise and it will arrive on your doorstep when you least expect it!

2. I will have 365 days to do it in.

What's the catch? to get the handmade gift from me, you have to play too.

3. You must have a blog.

4. BEFORE: you comment here, you must post your "Pay it Forward" on your blog to keep the fun going, and display the "Pay it Forward" button. (just copy the button and put it on your blog you can even copy the rules and paste them to your blog as well)

I look forward to hearing from you.

I hope you have a great day. :o}
