Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all and here is my take on New Year’s Resolutions!

Stitchery pattern for New Year

It’s just a fun little stitchery design that I sketched earlier this week and quickly sewed for you. I had hoped to have it made up into a simple little wallhanging to show you, but time has overtaken me, what with waiting for new floor to be tiled … still not finished… before the arrival of visitors….. now here for a few days…. and now to top it all a humdinger of a cold!!!!! Plus a very, very late night last night seeing in the New Year. We well and truly saw it in until 4 am, ate too much, drank too much, danced too much and now need to have a pyjama day! So, I’m afraid this is as far as I have got with my sewing. If you like the New Year sentiment you can download the New Year Stitchery Design here and stitch your way into the New Year.

The New Year SAL will be here very soon. It is designed and all cut out on my sewing table ready for me to sew. Can’t wait to sew it and present it to you, but unfortunately my visitors can’t wait either. It’s tough when you are the hostess with the mostest! I have crept out of bed to quickly post this design for you before they all drag themselves from their beds.

OK I’m off now to put my apron on (over pyjamas), box of tissues firmly clasped in hand, stepping carefully over incomplete floor and will shine for my visitors, come what may!

Happy 2012. I hope you all ‘shine’ today and throughout the year. Enjoy!

  17. Happy new year to you …wishing you all the best for 2012 !
    Hope you get well very soon and that your floor get fixed asap !

  18. Hi, Lesley! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you very much for your gift! I love it!
    Although I should place the sentence backwards: eat less and exercise more!
    Except that this block is part of a project called: what NOT to do!
    My best wishes to you and yours! Have a great day! In my city at this time, 15 hours, make 36 ° C! I take a shower soon! Hahaha!
    A big hug!

  19. Happy New Year to you

  20. Good luck with the sewing, and hope you feel better soon.Happy New Year to you and your family. So looking forward to a lot of sewing this year.

    Happy New Year! Thank you for the cute design.
    I wish that could be my New Year’s resolution, unfortunately, it MUST be the opposite. LOL. Sandy. 😉

  22. Dear Leslie, happy new year to you. God bless you.

  23. Oh no! I hope you and Marilyn are both wrong. I have spent most of the day sitting on my backside, feeling sorry for myself in between cooking meals for guests. And no sewing in sight! That is NOT how I want the year to continue!

  24. Happy New Year to you also! Thank you for your generosity in sharing your creations with us. I have also heard of the saying that Marilyn posted and that is why today I will work on all my hobbies! I only have about four or five! LOL!

  25. Pues desde México quiero desearte que el 2012 te de mucha salud y felicidad.

  26. LOVE it! Too funny. I THINK you might have things a bit backward there however. LOL

    Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope you start feeling better and that floor gets finished.

    PS ~ maybe if you rub your nose with those tissues enough it will shine and you can then look like you feel – someone that wants to just go back to bed. 😉

  27. Well, Lesley, they say “as you start the year, so it shall continue” – or did I just make that up?? LOL Anyway, a little stitchery, computer time, friends who don’t mind you in your jammies (plus apron), what more could you want? Hope 2012 is a great one and I am so glad I found you in 2011. Lookinfg forward to your SAL and any QAL you do.

  28. Te deseo un feliz año llevo de proyectos.

  29. Happy New Year Lesley…I know the feeling of being the hostess with the mostest. I live in the USA with my DHofH…all our family lives in Canada….so we have lots of ‘sleep overs’ so to speak. After 48 hours of being in the USA each person is allowed $400.00 duty free when they return to Canada. Thank you for the bear stitchery. It is perfect for me….I ♥ it….I’m a teddy bear collector and I posted about the quilted Christmas Teddy Bear I made for my DGS on my blog….I will be stitching ‘I must eat LESS’ and ‘exercise MORE’…and hang it by my treadmill that hasn’t walked with me for 4 weeks. I’m looking forward to your next ‘QAL’. Thanks for your inspiration and sharing your talents. Wishing 2012 will be filled with happiness, good health and prosperity. hugs Pauline

  31. It sounds like your New Year is off on the right foot, stitching, being with friends, spending time in your PJ’s. I am ignoring the part about the cold as are you.

  32. AVery Happy New Year to you. Have Lovely time today and I really hope your cold goes away as quickly as it came. Drink More!!!
