Last Day of 2011, YAY!

I can say that 2011 completely sucked!  It was a horrible year for me and my family, yet at the same time, I used it as a year of tremendous growth and I am  much happier for it!

I went to look at a mare today, she was really nice but not my FTB, so the search continues, or rather, begins lol!  

Here are a couple of pics.  They say what you do on New Year's Day, you'll do the rest of the year, maybe I should've rode tomorrow lol!  No matter, the Japanese say, what you do at the end of the year, you'll take over into the New Year, either way, I'M GETTIN BACK TO THE TRAILS! WOO HOO!

A very Happy New Year to you all, let's ROCK 2012!
*HUGS* and Alohas!

Hello Bloggers and Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! (Happy New Year).

Here's to 2011 being over with ... a lot of growth and changes for me but that's okay, it's all for the better.

Here's to 2012 and making my wishes and dreams come true starting with a pony (horse, actually, that's just my affection frothing over lol!) that I can ride anywhere, anytime and a lot of camping and trail riding getting accomplished and made up for!

It's been a long one, this year and I'm glad that it's almost over.  I'm going to focus on finishing UFOs and getting a couple of quilts that I've made as gifts of appreciation for those that helped us through our rough patch this year, finished as well.

I'll post pics of them here when they're done and the  new Xs and Os that I'm working on made from the charm pack I won.  Figures, I ran out of the background so have to send a swatch to Missouri Star Quilt Company and get another, LOVE them!  If it weren't for Jenny and her wonderful and easy to follow tutorials, NONE of my quilting dreams would be coming true!

Well, looking forward to more folks following and a lot more fun posts this year.  Here's to a better one for us all!

*HUGS* and Alohas! and again, Hau'oli Makahiki Hou to you and yours!

I won a truly precious Japanese panel, hand made by Julie Fukuda at My Quilt Diary. (I'm so choked up, I can barely type!) 

This is a very, very special prize for me as I will never see my mother's that she left for me and this is almost identical to hers.  I'll post a pic when I get it.

Looks like 2012 is really a 180 from 2011, THANK GOODNESS! AND C'MON WIT IT! I am SO ready!


Mahalo a nui loa! Doumo Arigato Gozaimashiita!
Thank you so VERY MUCH!
