This is the BIG FINISH for the year. Very loosely following a pattern I found on sewnhenge, I actually made TWO (count ’em!) hot pads in TWO (count ’em!) days. OK, so they’re both just the least bit wonkydoodle – they work! And they count as things I finished. No UFO sightings to end the year!

wonky is good, right?

not as wonky as the first one - but it still counts as wonky!

Is there a cure for scrapaddiction? I hope not!

Sooooo, no doubt you’re asking yourself, “Hmmmm . . . . I just wonder what she’ll try next?” Yep, I’m sure that’s the question on your mind at this very minute. Well, I’ll just tell ya. After the wonkydoodles, I’ll be trying my hand at a scrappy oven mitt. I got a really cool pattern from Maria Shell, and I cannot WAIT to give it a try.

Well, that’s it for this year. I would like to end 2013 with some very encouraging words, and start 2014 with the same. So here are some of the most encouraging words I can think of:

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs 18:10

No matter what this new year may bring – joys, sorrows, triumphs or trials – I know the LORD is my strong tower. He’s got my back! How ’bout you?
