New Year's Wish

I wish for all of you, dear friends, a healthy, happy, and most blessed 2007! May you reach all your stitching goals and even go beyond - wouldn't that be something!

I've reviewed my list of finished pieces for 2006 - total: 21.

Of course, I'd love to see a higher number, but I still am pleased with what I've accomplished this year. As far as setting goals for 2007, well, I'm just not going to, but will instead take each day as it comes along and stitch what I feel like stitching. If I need a little motivation, all I need do is read a few of my friends' blogs - you're all so inspiring!

One hobby I need to work on more is card making. I don't know how often I've thought that I need to send a card to someone, but didn't have anything appropriate on hand, then time slips away, or rather, my mind slips. :)

And how I'd love to do more smocking! Maybe I need to give up this 8 hours of sleeping thing. Anyway, there's always something more to do, something fun to learn, and wonderful people to do it with. Thanks for being such a terrific part of my life this year; I'm really looking forward to seeing what 2007 holds for us all!

Your smocking and card-making are fabulous - I can see why you'd like to devote more time to them. If you figure out how to do without the sleep, please share your secret!!

I love your newly made cards! Good for you for finding the time as such a busy mum for yourself.=) Must be hard, but I'm glad you do it.=)

A happy New Year to you and your family, Von!
Believe me, I've tried doing away with the sleeping, but it's affecting my eye-hand coordination, so I wouldn't recommend it!

I wish for you Von, all the lovely things you mentioned and more! May 2007 bring us all peace and hope!
Happy New Year, I'm so glad that you visited my blog last summer and introduced yourself, your writings have made me smile many, many times!
