Goodbye 2016

Six more hours and 2016 will be gone forever. As always there were some ups and downs and, for some unknown reason, I'm looking into 2017 with real excitement.

Last January I started the year with minimalism challenge. The idea was to remove what wasn't adding value in to my life and to make room for stuff that is. And let me tell you -I have so much room now that I must to start 2017 with maximalism challenge (if such thing exists).

Definitely I have a lot of room for more love, more compassion, more friends, more money, more finishes, more fun, practically more of everything. I read very few books this year (just 33) and I made very few blog posts (56). Can you agree that I have plenty of room for more?

I'm not setting any goals and I'm not making any resolutions. Instead I'm making an action plan!

As for the stitchy part... I DID IT!!! I finished sixth page of my Guardian Angel and I'm ready to start another one. Here is the finished page:


So long my friends,

Merry Christmas!

How was your first day of Christmas? Mine has started awesome! We were driving to our friends for Christmas dinner and there it was... a Santa fishing on our beautiful Cameron Lake.


After dinner we were driving through Ladysmith and enjoyed festival of lights. In reality it was spectacular!



I'm not doing so good with my Guardian Angel and I do not think I can finish that page by the end of the year...

I guess this time Christmas got in the way of accomplishing my goal.

So long my friends,

Oops!

It looks like all of the sudden my tunnel got longer, much longer. Santa's 12 Days of Christmas went to the 'to do' basket and Guardian Angel again is brought to the light. I really would like to finish two columns of pages by the end of the year. Here is where I'm now:

There is about 7700 stitches to accomplish my goal for the year. If I can stitch just little over 400 a day I can do it. What do you think?

So long my friends,

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I've started stitching Santa's 12 Days of Christmas in January 2015. I thought it never be done...
I was wrong! I finished Santa #9 and#10, now I'm working on the #11 and it looks like I will finish all of them by Christmas.



 

So long my friends,
