Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!
Wishing you a 2013 filled full of tatting goodness and joy from the Piney Woods~
Well, dear readers, 2013 is not starting out too well for our family.  My father was rushed to the ER with kidney stones.  He is in a lot of pain and I am very concerned for both him & my mom.  For those of you who pray, please do so for my family.  Healing thoughts and wishes are most welcome, too!
I am working on the above motif, but have not made much progress.  It is my hope to get back to tatting this afternoon, once my father is settled.
Another thing I'm working on is the blog theme for January.  I have all the other themes planned, but January is stumping me.  Any suggestions?  I'll try to get the finished motif up tomorrow along with the January theme and poll results.  Today is the last day to vote in the poll, so please make your voice heard.
Take care, dear readers, and may you have a wonderful New Year!  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!

    Hmmm, themes for January... Any of these tickle your fancy? "In the bleak midwinter" or "Snow Queen" or "Ice Palaces" or "Threshold" or "Cocoa Days" or "Fresh Page" or "New Beginning" or "Mitten Season" or "Cozy Days" or "Winter Escape" or .... Maybe all these off the cuff brainstorm ideas will stir up an idea inside you. Whatever you decide, I look forward to your blog.
