Full moon...New Year....

The New Year is upon us already.... how time seems to fly these days! I havent been very busy stitching over the Christmas and New Year ... too much socialising and preparations. I have had my MIL staying the past two weeks, and she will be with for another couple of weeks so we have been out and about too. The only thing I have done is this little owl which is now winging its way to Europe to a young artist that I know loves owls...hope she likes this little fellow.

I havent really made any New Years Resolutions as such. I will keep it simple, I am just going to try and be positive and happy.... I think good things happen when you are! I have made lists other years with such good intentions, but I get a bit overwhelmed and it goes by the wayside.


Thank you so much to the wonderful friends I have made through this blog and my art ... your visits, comments and friendship are so very much appreciated. I look forward to visiting your blogs throughout the New Year and look forward to the friendship and inspiration I always receive.


"And now let us believe in the New Year that is given us ...new, untouched, full of things that have never been."
-Rainer Maria Rilke -
Wishing you all a year filled with love, peace, happiness and joy!

Happy New Year. I have so many blogs on my 'to read' list I haven't been here for a while except throiugh google reader so its the first time I've seen your lovely new decorations. I love it. In answer to your question about the red heart, I had to send most of those off to a shop yesterday but i may make a few more for the etsy shop. I can't answer you directly as you are a 'no reply' blogger but I'm sure I'll put them on the blog.
