Adieu 2011 - Welcome 2012

I can't believe it's already time to say good bye to yet another year. Here's a quick re-cap of the year that was and my finishes.

Let me start with my resolutions for 2011 and what I managed to keep up:
1. A veggie a day
2. A fruit a day
3. A piece of choc a day (to whet my sweet tooth and not to deprive myself of anything) and last but defffinitely not the least
4. (atleast) a stitch per day

Not that many resolutions, are they? But they were tough to keep up all the same, trust me. Of course #3 was the easiest of the lot ;) I definitely managed 1 and 3. A fruit a day - well, I have to admit that I have not been very sincere in that. And also, a stitch a day did get affected thanks to a lot of other activities and work. But overall, I am happy with the number of finishes I have had over the year. Especially considering that I think this was the most fruitful year when it comes to crafting

And now, what are to be my resolutions for 2012?! Am I brave enough to include more to the list above? Of course, my dear friends. So, here I go:
I have decided to stick to the above for sure.
1. A veggie a day
2. A fruit a day
3. A piece of choc a day (to whet my sweet tooth and not to deprive myself of anything) and last but defffinitely not the least
4. I am going to change "A sticth a day" to "A craft a day"
5. A stretch of brisk walk a day (any time between 20 -30 minutes is a stretch)
6. A handful of nuts a day.

Ok, now for my favourite part. Stitchy finishes of 2011


This is very special as it was my first ornament finish
I was unable to take a picture after I catually finished the bookmark unfortunately. It came out very well
Again, my first ever tin finish

Last but not the least the quaker welcome, which welcomes people home now :)
And now, as we embark into an all new year, I take with me a new project by Janlynn
I can't claim great progress, but have tried to put in atleast half a row daily.
Also, this year I have joined the Cottages SAL being co-ordinated by Vonna over here
And during 2011, I have made such wonderful friends through the blogging world. Dearest friends, without all your support and encouragement I am sure I would not have managed to have even these finishes. I cannot thank you enough for the support.

If you are still around, friends Wish you all a very very Happy, prosperous and a splendid Year 2012. Let it be everything happy, crafty and stitchy.
Till we meet in an all new year.. Take care.. Be Happy.. Keep Stitching.. Au Revoir

Good luck with your 2012 goals! In our Get Fit Challenge at work, we're required to eat 5 fruits or vegetables per day and 32oz of water. There are exercise requirements, too (I lack in that dept). The water and food I have no problem with.
