And the new year begins

At this time of year it's always fun to reflect on the events of the 2010 and look forward to 2011.

It's been a good year for Glad Creations. We spiffed up the shop with new carpet throughout and fresh paint. It was a trial when going on, but well worth it! Our staff all pitched in and we are forever thankful!

We had some fun events this year. The Twin Cities Shop Hop is always great fun and such a nice group of shops to work with. The Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop was also fun. Such creativity in the quilting world. Nancy and I were the speakers at 3 different quilt guilds this year. We put on the program for the Chaska Quilters, the Deep Valley Quilters in Mankato and the Rochester quilt guild. It was great fun to meet all of those quilters and to share some of our quilts and some of Glad's prize winning appliqued quilts. Glad attended with us and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the Minnesota Quilt show in St. Cloud this year. It was great fun to touch base with quilters around the state and to share our love of quilting.

Personally, 2010 was a great year. Our family was blessed with good health and good times. We were also blessed with the arrival of a 2nd grandson, Win. What can be better than that?

So what will 2011 bring us? We are looking forward to another great year. It is starting out with one of the greatest quilt displays we have put up. The Lone Star Show is amazing. Our staff really went all out making some magnificent quilts. Be sure to come in to see it. It will be up through January 8. We know we will have those fun shop hops to look forward to. Also the Minnesota Quilt show in St. Paul. We will be the speakers this year at the St Cloud Heritage Quilters Guild and also the Women of the West. And who knows what else will pop up?

We wish all of you a wonderful 2011. Thank you for all your support this past year. We look forward to seeing many of you, enjoying your quilting accomplishments and getting to know you all even better.
