Good morning and Happy last Thursday of 2022! It's always hard to believe it when we get to the end of another year. But here we are! Google Photos made me a collage of some of the best moments of 2022. I didn't give it any input, it was just there. Kind of fun, though!

I'm finishing up one more quilt to end the year. Love hand stitching the binding, which I was doing last night.
I found an interesting new book to read this week. In fact, older son recommended it, saying he saw it on the New York Times list of Notable Books of 2022.
Apparently it's not this author's first book, but it is her first novel.
The main character is a young woman in Bangalore, India, in the 1920s.

What are you looking forward to in the new year? Learning new things, going new places?
I would like to improve my crochet skills! A friend gave me a lesson in October or so, and I felt pretty competent with single and double crochet back then, and made this practice piece.
At that point I was pretty proud of myself, and planned to do more of it,
but now I'm feeling a little rusty, and probably need another lesson.
I'd really like to make something useful - like a hat, maybe?
After reading another blogger's series of posts about a trip she and her husband took last fall, I decided I would really like to see Lake Superior. I lived near Lake Ontario when I was growing up, and have visited Lake Erie and Lake Michigan, but haven't seen Huron or Superior. So that's on my travel list this year.
Of course, there will be new books to read, new quilt projects to stitch, and who knows what else. Bring it on!
