Pat, would you blog about your new header and tell us what patterns those beautiful wall hangings/quilts are. I love your new word for the year; I think we all need to slow down and enjoy the whole process.


Enjoy is an awesome word!


Pat, I hope you enjoy 2012! My Grand-daughter and I got into choosing our words. She chose "possibility" and made a pillow with her word on it. I had a harder time because there were so many choices. I finally wrote them down and chose "believe" Thank you for enriching my life each day by sharing your humor, expertise and yourself. Thank you especially for your ideas this weekend, my grand-daughters helped make a pillow and pillowcase (with french seams) together. I can't think of a better way to start a New Year!


Hope you ENJOY this new year 2012! You definitely deserve more time to enjoy life - you give so much pleasure to so many people and work so very hard.

I will try to help you focus on your word by imagining you ENJOYing working in your garden, or ENJOYing a sunrise/sunset, ENJOYing quiet time with whomever you choose.


Happy New Year Pat&Gregg. Hope it is great for you!

Love the new banner and you with the girls in the garden.

I was just on another blog who asked what the word for 2012 will be and I also chose ENJOY! So that I can enjoy the day more by doing a second word PURGE.

I ENJOY travel, photography, family, friends and creativity.

May 2012 be great for us all.

That sounds like the perfect word for the year- suitable for all areas and one that is easy to focus on and find meaning in. Happy New Year!

Beth Friend

Happpy New Year Pat and Gregg. I too will ENJOY 2012. Time to let go of the excess and keep only what gives us enjoyment.


Happy 2012, Pat! Enjoy!! It's one of my favorite words. :-) My word this year is "Christmas" which is a noun and I suppose I should choose a verb and an action verb at that. LOL! I need to decide for my post later on today...... :-)

Thanks Pat for the Fun at Quiltmashup yesterday. Today I go to Church. I got half way on my quilting and am so HAPPY to have won 1 of your giveaways. I'll be watching for the Squishie in the mail...

Ms. Pat, I love your word "Enjoy". You do deserve time off to "enjoy" all of the extra things you like in life. Happy New Year!


Enjoy! Now theres a word we can "live" with. I love your goals and I'm "stealing" them for my own. Love your blog! One of the things I'm simplifying is how much time I "waste" on the computer but cutting out reading your blog is not happening! Its uplifting and encouraging! Thanks Pat.

I love your positive goals for the new year! Mine are very similar. I need to slow my pace a bit and narrow my focus too. I try to do way too many things all at once. LOL The first quarter of this year is going to be spent training my new puppy, weeding out my sewing room (and the rest of the house), and working on UFOs. My new diet is going well, and I'll be adding some weight training to my power walking. I'm thrilled to start 2012 feeling much healthier and energetic than I have in a few years!


Happy New Year!

Amanda in KY

I really love this approach to finding your word!

Linda P

Hope you truly enjoy this fresh new year!


Happy New Year to you and the Shipping Dept. It sounds like you have set some very realistic goals for 2012. And, I love your word for the year! If you can't enjoy yourself, why bothering doing it!
Just wanted to say that I look forward to reading your Blog everyday. You keep things interesting and informative, as you do with your radio show. Looking forward to more great things this year. And, thank you for all that you do to make it "enjoyable" for all of us.

Shirley in Canada

What a wonderful word for you, Pat!! I do "believe" you can do it and make the very most of that word all year long!! ♥
