Happy New Year! Let’s Have Fun in Our Studios in 2023

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I wish you all a wonderful 2023 full of blessings and accomplishments. We had a kind of rough ending to 2022 with the flu for both my youngest son and myself that we are finally over after nearly three weeks with it, and the death of my dear brother in law and other less dramatic difficulties.  Consequently, I did not get a YouTube video out in December, but one is in the works and will be out early in the new year.  We did manage to get our Christmas decorations up and they will stay there through much of January.

Nevertheless, it seems a somewhat wonderful way to start the new year with these difficult things behind us. I have a very long list of interesting projects to choose from for 2023 that I am anxious to dive into and share with you as I make them. My son David just finished a short story for an anthology he was asked to write and he is nearly finished with a new science fiction book which he is likely to get out the door in January.  So there is much to look forward to.

God is with us and there is something refreshing and sparkling about the start of this new year.

Please let me know what you are working on.  I would love for you to share pictures and progress with me both in comments on my blogs and below my YouTube videos and emails to BettyJo@bjfabricartist.com.

Sew happy everyone and have fun in your studios (regardless of its size and equipment).  Hugs all around.
