Getting Into the Groove of 2023


I'm thinking it will be a nine patch year! I've started making them here and there, though I'm not sure what I'll do with them yet. I've got some ideas from Pinterest. But for now I'll just make them. 

I've figured out a 'different' way to make nine patches from one square and a strip as seen above. It's fun and I only end up with one nine patch instead of several from the same fabric pair. If interested, I can share how I do it.

I didn't make a list of goals this year, but I do want to work on a couple of WIPs. I pulled this one- I really like it and would love to finish it this year.

Since our move in September, I've gotten totally out of the habit of walking. In the last week, I've pushed myself to get back in the groove. Our neighborhood is really small...just one street. So I have to get out on the main road to walk. At least there's a nice, wide sidewalk. I can walk to several shops and restaurants. I could even walk to the grocery store. I'm getting used to my new normal route.

One day per week our golf course is closed and I can walk the cart path. I really like it when I can do this.

I got a Le Creuset dutch oven for Christmas.

Last night I made a new-to-me version of Chicken and Dumplings. It was really different, but so good. Hubby went back for seconds. It has apple juice in it! I wasn't so sure about it, but let me tell you, it is so delicious! Find the recipe HERE.

Here I am on our patio wearing a funny t-shirt that was amongst my Christmas gifts. I love it!

Enjoy your week! Are you getting back in the groove?
