I, myself, am well. We had a lovely holiday season. Quiet. Small. While our little family usually galavants about the Canadian country side hither and thither all holidays, this year we stayed put. And I, for one, enjoyed the slower pace.
Which brings me to my New Year's resolution. That's right, there's only one. But it's a biggie for me. And it is this: patience. Having it, getting it, practicing it, growing it, breathing it, eating it for breakfast.
Yes, I am an impatient person. I like things done now, man. And I like them done in a certain way. Don't make me wait. Don't ask me silly questions. Just do it. And do it right, or you will regret it.
You see what I mean? It's a problem. It's a real and abiding problem. It is a tenacious beast that I wrestle with every single day. So this year? This year is the year. This year, I take a deep breath, and I tackle the beast.
Wish me luck.
P.S. Made more 3-1/2 inch blocks to go with these babies. I've added a couple yellow Hour Glass blocks, a blue Churndash, and a pink 'n yellow Eight-Pointed Star Variation. Busy and impatient little bee.
My goal for today is to get some of our gifts wrapped. I've gone back in the archives and made some lovely junk mail gift bows. Remember these? HERE's the tutorial, just in case you'd like to give 'em a whirl!
