Happy New Year

As the new year approaches I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone all the best for 2011.
May you achieve all the goals that you set for yourselves and get great enjoyment out of doing it.
I know that next year will be a quieter one for me as I try to create more for me and have fewer deadlines that I have to meet.
I want to learn new things-be more adventurous-step out of my comfort zone a bit more.
I want to have days where I can sit and stare into space and not feel guilty because I haven't made something for someone.
I would like to try and finish a lot of the UFO's that I have in a box-out of sight out of mind but this year the lid will come off the box.
I want to spend more time walking before my legs decide that they don't want to walk anymore :((
I did not intend this to be a New Years resolution type of post but it looks as though that is how it has turned out.
So all that is left for me to say is that I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve and a fabulous 2011.

I think you are right, we all need to be able to sit and not feel guilty, something I find impossible to do, but I can if its a bit of stitching, not for any one, just for pleasure.
Now my knee is better, more walking and lose some weight!
Have a great 2011 Doreen.
(oh and I still havent done the last 4 stitches, after New Years Eve I hope!!)

Cheers Doreen!

Lovely post Doreen - thankyou. I hope you achieve all your goals and enjoy doing so. It seems a natural time to be stocktaking and assessing things. I must try and get fitter in 2011 - feeling lazy already!! Happy New Year to you and yours.

They sound like pretty good resolutions to me, we all need to feel less guilty about just sitting without working! Happy New Year to you too. Cheers, Robin

I hope that you achieve all your goals Doreen and don't feel guilty about any that you don't. Happy New Year.

I like when you said "try to create more for me and have fewer deadlines that I have to meet"....I feel the same. And I also want to spend more time staring into space! I'm good at that!

Happy New Year, Doreen!

I have great respect for you, keeping up with Sharon's TAST program. I gave up after about 2 months of frantic stitching to try and stay abreast of each new stitch! You certainly need a break! Your goals sound similar to a few other crafty bloggers I've been reading lately.
Best wishes for a very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year!
