It's been a wildly creative and heart-expanding year.
I wish for next year to be just as warm and wonderful, so yesterday I made an excursion to our local quilting shop to pick out fabrics for a quilt. I choose fifteen different patterns, all in red, many of which remind me of friendships that have grown this year. I'll cut hearts from the fabrics and scatter-stitch them on a cover, to be lined with fleece from the farm's alpacas. The quilt will serve as insurance against the cold for me and my friends for years to come.
A Warm and Happy New Year to you all!
