Saying Good-Bye to 2016 seems like a very good thing to do. It has had its issues and so have I. With the decision to list our home for sale has come a lot of added work and responsibilities. It also added a lot of travel to find where we will relocate. Nothing is certain and there are still many decisions to be made.
I am busy auditioning words and meanings for my 2017 journey. I have a few that I am pursuing and hopefully I will "focus" on one very soon. Focus was my word a few years ago and to be truthful I am continuing my struggles with being able to focus. I do get easily side-tracked.
I wasn't able to do as many creative pursuits this year. I am hoping to make my creative interests priority in 2017. This photo is showing some Needle Tatted bracelets I was able to make for my girls for Christmas...daughter, daughter-in-love and two granddaughters. I found this YouTube video by One Virtuous Woman and it was just the perfect help as I learn Needle Tatting. Thank you very much OVW. I wasn't able to be with my daughter or granddaughters this year so I can only hope they liked their bracelets. My daughter-in-love put hers on right away and I know she liked it. Her favorite color is purple and she loves copper. I saw her actually smiling as she carefully looked at the tatting. It warms my heart. I shall continue to pursue Needle Tatting in 2017. In fact Santa gave me an instruction book and I have read it once through. I even ordered new threads. I will share more on this in the future.
For now I shall wish each of you a Wonderful New Year in 2017. May you have Happiness and Love and Health and Creative Bliss. Mr. C and I will be safely staying home and enjoying a nice dinner and conversation with our dear neighbor who watches over our home when we are gone. We are not late revelers so I can assure you we will not be out and rowdy as midnight strikes...a second later than normal.
Peace and Love and Health and Happiness for each of you and for everyone in our World. XO
