Hannah got all of her blocks back from this summer quilting round robin back in September, and we love them. She’d asked for brown and rainbows, and that is what she got.

Sixteen going on seventeen! 2016 is over, a new year is ahead. Who knows what’s in front of us? I like to start each year hopeful and positive, and 2017 is no different. That’s all of my outfit photos above. The year started with intense knee pain right before a January blizzard, evolved to knee surgery in April, crutches and a cane through the end of May (and a trip to the UK). Summer fun, fall boots, costumes, disappointments, Christmas. It was a year.
