Happy New Year

My last post of the year. I want to thank all of my
followers and stitching friends who visit my blog. I
cannot put into words how much encouragement and
joy I get from each of you. I wish everyone a blessed
new year. I reflect on the past year of 2010, many
trials and many blessings. When I think of this year,
I will remember meeting my sister Carol in Chicago
and in NYC. It was the highlight of my year. I stitched
37 pieces this year, quite a challenge, I worked 2 jobs up
until August. My New Year's Resolution - it will be a
hard one. I will not be allowed to spend any money on
myself, - no clothes, jewelry, shoes, etc but, I will
allow myself to pick up any supplies I need for Stitching.
I have picked out many pieces already and have them
set to stitch. I will be using charts that I have. If I
do decide I just need a chart I will purchase it. People
may ask why I am doing this. I plan to move in a couple
of years and want to have as much cash as I can saved
to make the journey easier. I have no idea where the
lord will be taking me, but I trust god. I am allowing
myself to buy gifts for others, just not for myself. I
am a giver at heart. I can honestly say I need nothing.
Can I do this, we will see. I will still be taking
vacations etc, just not buying any stuff. I will try
to save as much as I can. I did not set a stitching
goal. It is a hobby I enjoy and I did not want to put
any stress on myself. I get enough of that from work.
I do have some great charts picked out and projects
to do. I will be focusing on other holidays to stitch for.
I have no easter, fourth of july, and only one
thanksgiving piece. I have tons of christmas pieces,
it is my favorite holiday. I will also be working on a
lot of freebie charts, so stay posted for a great year.
If you have not signed up for the giveaway, scroll down
and join the fun. The giveaway will be on New Year's Day-
my Birthday. The picture of the lollipops above was
taken at the Chocolate show in NYC in November.
I love Chocolate. Happy New Year Everyone.

HNY to you too Cindy! I know exactly what you mean, isn't a grateful heart and simply needing nothing the best feeling ever! I don't set stitchy goals either and I love chocolate too:) All the best to you for a sweet 2011...

Florrie said...

Happy New Year Sandy.......can't wait to see what projects you'll be working on.

Carol said...

Happy New Year, Cindy! Sounds like you have some very admirable goals set for 2011...I'm sure your spending plan will help you achieve your long-term wish to move somewhere new.

We all have more than enough "stuff," don't we! I hate to shop so rarely buy things for myself other than stitchy stuff. I'm glad you'll at least be treating yourself to more of that :)

Sharon said...

Sounds like a very good plan to me! Happy New Year to you!

Brigitte said...

Wishing you and your family a Happy new Year!
