Greetings from South Texas where we are having a pleasant winter! Life is getting so much better for Clay and I – even with the staying at home, curbside for groceries and orders from Walmart along with good ole’ Amazon. All of these companies have really benefited from the CV this year. We all pray that things change quickly and we can become free people again and enjoy normal lives. I am happily looking forward to 2021. Starting a new year is a wonderful experience, it allows us to bury all the negative things in the previous year and look forward for positive things coming in the new year. There are times and years we have no control what happens and it is so difficult to live through those years, but thank goodness we have a new year a coming!
I have given up on planning weekly to-do lists until 1 Jan 2021 for my quilting goals. So far I have completed 2 more blocks for OMIGOSH and made 4 blocks for The OMIGOSH and The Arrowhead Project. Click on the link for background information on both projects.

The Arrowhead Blocks – Setting 2
My Medallion for Stars Around the Garden (SAG) has begun. This is the layout for the colors.
I am getting a slow start but hopefully I will get with the applique program quickly – I would love to have it finished by the New Years Eve!!! (Oops just made a goal for myself!)
I do my stems different than most quilters. I cut fabric bias strips at 1/2” or 3/4” depending on the size of each pattern stems. I stitch the outside of the stem and then if I need to trim the strip I can, and then turn the strip under. I find that this is the fastest way to make the stems. I am a traditional appliquer and use freezer paper and no glue on my projects.
OK so here are a few easy goals for the remainder of the year:
- BE HAPPY for a New Year coming!
- Finish the applique for SAG Medallion
- Continue to work on OMGOSH blocks
- Continue to make more blocks for The Arrowhead Block quilt.
I am getting over the stress related skin breakout! Thankfully – I am trying to get this over with before New Years Eve also.
Apple problem has been resolved, but the lesson from this is – NEVER SEND IN A TRADE IN IPHONE OR APPLE WATCH WITHOUT HAVING PICTURES AND PAPERWORK SAVED! Someone did take my trade in and replaced it with their iPhone. I no longer trust Apple in handling trade in items honestly. I had complete documentation (to include the original box) to back me up and was successful to get it resolved – but it did take 6 days to do so!
Medicare is still unresolved but it will be what it will be! I have to control the stress they are causing – so I am playing Scarlett O’Hara – I will worry about it tomorrow! LOL
Have a very Merry Christmas and remember, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus. We can all do that while at home with our families. Take care and Stay healthy!

Hi Nanette! I love your goals especially the be happy for 2021! I wholeheartedly agree that we should all be happy for 2021. I wish you and your family a very Happy Holidays. Thank you for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne
I have 5 more days to be complaining!!!! Then I have to be Happy
I love the fabrics you’ve used in SAG. Enjoy the applique, happy stitching!
Thank you Gretchen
Looking good Nanette! I especially like the goal keep making Omigosh blocks, as long as you do a little something everyday, more blocks will appear! I had such a good day sewing these past two days, I am now feeling the cleaning bug coming on, so I think that is the agenda for tomorrow morning, then some serious hand quilting while I catch up on the Pat Sloan daily vids. A Face Tine is in order sometime while I’m on break if you are up for it.
Thank you Kathy! You have done a lot. Send some of that energy to me!!!
Just read today’s post – that is my mind – all over the place – The weather is changing so much that I cannot seem to get away from Mr Fibro – he is killing me this year! If I find my brain we will do a FaceTime – today you would not be able to understand my brain rambling! Hugs

Just let me know when you feel up to it!
I like your Arrowhead blocks. Are you using Anita Solomon’s instructions? I should cut back on my goals but I doubt I will. I have a few more things I want to finish still and the goal list will help me do them.
No I will be using Susies and the section that I posted the middle step! Hugs (Finally got this reply where it should be!!!!!)
It seems like there is always something that’s not going well, so it’s hard to completely destress. That seems to be life in the 2000’s. Hope all the outstanding items work themselves out and you can enjoy a peaceful New Year. Enjoy your stitching time this week.
Morning Kathy – hope you had a great Christmas. I can usually take the stupid people issues in stride, but I guess I finally have had enough for this year! I am adjusting and trying to get my life and footing back. Now I have 4 days left to complete that process because I am determined to start 2021 with a very positive outlook. Have a blessed Sunday – Hugs
Your blocks look great. I hope you come back and link up your finish in the future. Thanks for linking up your blocks with TGIFF.
Thank you so much. I will!
