Well, here it is mid February, and I'm just getting around to my first post of 2009. It's well established that I never keep my New Year's Resolutions. I still let an occasional naughty word slip, and have a pound or 18 to lose. But my plan to be a better blogger won't go completely out the window if I start now. 2009 did not start out as we had hoped, but we remember our blessings in spite of the lowest points and saddest days.
I'm sewing and painting again, so I'll be sharing some things soon. I'm working on some special things for the Mercantile Birthday month you read about above...
