New Year's Day 2016

I’m back and starting the New Year off right!  We played golf this morning on a new-to-me course that was in beautiful condition.  This is the clubhouse at Heritage Harbor:

And how foggy it was when we started because the temperatures have been in the 80s – yes!  even into January.

But we are expecting a chill and rain this weekend and we will be grateful for it. 

This was part of the scenic cartpath (it was actually much greener going through than the picture shows but those cypress do lose their leaves in winter):

And a few holes (including the DH teeing off):

And on the quilty front, I began a New Year’s Eve mystery yesterday, but wasn’t able to finish.  This was how I progressed:
these were my mystery fabrics - a jelly roll and background fabric

pieces were cut and ready to go

some blocks were made

status when I had to quit - only bottom border is ready

It is now a 2016 UFO – amazing how those things mount up!  I hope to finish it this weekend and get it into the “to-be-quilted” basket.  It sure is ORANGE.

And this is to be my philosophy for today:

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential.

I'm a lttle behind on my reading - but an "amen" to the philosophy of the day!
