Happy New Year's Resolution

Dear friends, followers and readers

(image from this site)

May 2011 be your best year ever! 

Resolution... How many of you have made one or more resolutions for 2011? 
You may have noticed the head line; Happy New Year's Resolution... I put it this way, because I wish those of you who have made resolutions for 2011; good luck & the very best! Personally I don't see any point in making resolutions every new year, because I don't have willpower enough to stick to them! Kidding! There are decisions I'm going to take in near future, but why do I have to decide and make it valid from January 1st and call it resolutions? I don't want to fool myself...
OK, let's face it; how many of us have gained weight over the festive season? Confession; I have! Not much, but enough to see and feel it - my clothes have shrunk in the wardrobe - must be the high humidity here - lol! I know I always gain weight this time of the year; too much yummy food. But I also know, what I have gained will disappear over the next months, especially when we start hiking again - this time of the year it is too hot for hiking (for me). The extra grams; nothing to worry about! 

Stash shopping! How many of you are not going to do any stash shopping this year?! :)) I don't want to make any resolution on it, because I know I won't be able not buying any stash at all over the next 12 months! I'll try my best to use fabric from my stash, but there might be I need some meters/yards... Over the last year I have seen so many wonderful scrap quilts, as well as following this blog - Stash Manicure - where there are so many ideas from quilters how to use from your stash. Great ideas for scrap quilts.
But first of all; I'm going to finish the accumulated quilt tops from 2010! 

All the very best for 2011!
Good luck on the resolutions you have made! 

A huge New Year's hug to my friends, followers and readers; without you my blog had not been possible! Thanks for all your wonderful comments, advices etc! 
I mean it - but I know it sounds like a cliche from an Oscar nomination - lol!

I rarely make a resolution - I never stick with it.

Happy New Year to you too :-)
As for the new year resolutions, I have stopped writing any list as from this year. For the last years, I have been blogging about my new year resolutions but most of the time, I end up the year without having completed the most important tasks.

I wish u the best for 2011.
Hope to see you soon,

I used to make resolutions each year, and never stuck with them. Then I stopped, then I made a few. Last year, my resolutions were: make socks, soap, and cheese. I made one sock, one batch of soap, and one batch of cheese. Does that count?? as for the weight, I went to the dr. a few days before Christmas, and go again tomorrow. I weighed too much the first time, and I'm sure will have gained a few pounds by tomorrow. Agh!
