Happy New Year

Just a quick note to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

 To my friends who left me those wonderful messages on my last post, I'm sorry I haven't been able to reply to you all individually, but I want you to know how much your well wishes and prayers have meant to me. Thank you.

We had a bit of a scare over the Christmas, with Mom's oxygen machine.  The first incident happened in the early hours of Christmas morning when I woke to the sound of the machine's alarm.  For some reason the power had gone out, but luckily I keep 2 oxygen tanks on hand in case of such an emergency. I got Mom hooked up to the tank, and fortunately the power came back on a few hours later.
Two nights later, or very early in the morning, the alarm went again, only this time the power was alright, but the machine was broken!!  It was 1:00 a.m., we were having a snow storm, and I only had one tank left!
I called the emergency number for the oxygen supplier, but he wasn't able to come right away, something about a snow plow blocking his truck, but he would get here as soon as he could. I lowered Mom's oxygen a little so the tank would last a bit longer, and waited.  Fortunately, the new machine, and back-up tanks arrived at 8:00 a.m., just as the tank was on empty.  Mom slept through it all, but I have few new gray hairs!

 I haven't made any New Year's resolutions this year, as I usually fail miserably in keeping them, so all I can say is that I am going to try to finish up a few UFOs, and I have already started de-cluttering my sewing space. Oh, and maybe try to lose a few pounds along the way! lol

What about you? Have you made any resolutions?

Merry Christmas

Mom hasn't been very well these past few months, and life has been hectic, with not much time for quilting, but I didn't want to let the season go by without wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

Bye for now.
