  1. What a lovely post to read, Roseann! I saved it for when I could really enjoy it; like you I am not stressing about blog writing or reading or commenting. It is much healthier for our souls I think. The ballerina quilt turned out fabulous! I am so glad that your Health is good, and hundred percent agree with you on masks and how much good there is as a result of wearing them. We’ve had a mandate here for a year and a half now and it is no big deal.

  2. What a year you had!!! Its so fun to see how you document your life through the quilts you make. and of course, the littles – they are so fun to watch grow, Here is to a successful 2022 !!!

    My year is going to be dedicated to whatever I want to do when I want to do it!!! No more adherence to challenges or deadlines. I will just endeavor to be happy with what is on my list or it will be removed! I have 2 “customer” items to do, leftover from 2021, but they will be attempted in January so I can clear out my obligations. Then it’s gather QAL/KAL info and decide when “I” want to do it!

    A thought provoking retrospective…had to think back on my past two years and how much the world has changed in ways that I doubt I would have thought possible when I was much younger. I do wish I had been as productive as you were though! LOL Thank you for the glimpses of constant creativity and familial warmth…love those little ones that make my week, every week! Thank you for all that you do and all the best to you and the extended family in the New Year! May it surpass expectations in all positive ways!

  5. Hi Roseanne. Another delightful post to sit and enjoy. I loved the fact that in spite of the past two years you still find positive things to write about. How fun to see your quilts again and read that you are doing what you need to do to lessen the stress. I think we all slowed down this year at various points. I’m taking a page from your book and trying not to plan or commit to many projects or deadlines this year. Hugs my friend. 😉

  6. It’s amazing what stress can do to us. Though what was a bad thing prevented an even worse thing, so maybe it wasn’t so bad after all. I’m adopting your perspective and have decided not to stress about finishes, my goal for 2022 is progress . As long as I’m not going backwards, it will be a good year. Happy New Year. Wishing you a happy and stress free 2022.

    I’m ready to put the past two years way behind me, and look forward to this year. You’ve had some challenges through the year, but you met them with spunk and positivity. Happy New Year to you and Sue!

  8. Wow what a year. So sorry that you had shingles and I guess a very lucky find with the melanoma. I honestly don’t know how you do all you do. Work, quilting and that gorgeous family. It’s wise not to commit to too much and go wit the flow. Love that ballerina quilt and so huge, lot of work in that. All the best for 2022, with some time set aside to be “gone fishing!”

    A great post about the best and not so great parts of the year. You have sewn more than you know and your posts are always the bright spot in my Thursdays!! No pressure (LOL). I’m happy the doctor took care of you and you came out on the right side. While face masks and vaccinations aren’t fun, they sure aren’t the hill I want to die on. And if it keeps me and others around me relatively safe, I’m happy to do my part. Meanwhile I want to party like those two in your last picture…I’ll probably be asleep under my hat! Happy New Year my frine.

    It was delightful to read about your year and be reminded of all the good (and bad) things that happened!
    Happy New Year! 🙂

    I really enjoyed reading your long and newsy post about 2021. I can relate to liking to plan things but also doing things spur of the moment. In college I had to choose an oxymoron to describe me, and I chose Spontaneous Planner. So speaking of planning, I’m thinking of joining you all for the SAHRR this year. Happy New Year!

  12. Great post, Roseanne! Here’s to 2022 – the best is yet to come!!! Happy New Year to you and Sue and your family! Looking forward to seeing the new baby and quilt!!

    What an odd year for many. I, too, slowed down – the endless low grade worry that still kept us distant from others. I am so glad your dermatologist was on the ball…and took good care of you. Lots of great finishes, but Addison’s quilt is so special. Glad you are back to blogging as needed. Looking forward to SAHRR!

  14. Roseanne, I had shingles this year, too! So crazy! Glad to be past that, as I’m sure you are, too. And the melanoma – good riddance to it! You’ve made some beautiful quilts this year, shared some wonderful times with your family, and I’m glad you’re back to blogging. Happy New Year!

  15. What a wonderful post! I’m so glad that shingles is behind you. Can you get the vaccine for that now? You continue to inspire and the kids continue to delight me! I love your quilts and projects. I love that you are taking it easier on yourself (enough stress getting through the day). Like you, I don’t mind masks. Have a safe and happy holiday dear Roseanne and Sue! Hugs!

    It certainly has been two strange years. We are not out of it yet, but at least better. I for one am so glad you are back to quilting and blogging. Happy New year 🎆!!
