Happy New Year everybody, hope you are all had a wonderful time welcoming in the New Year. 2010 WOW!! I don't know about the rest of you but I was not sorry to see 2009 go. 2010 just has to be better than last year. I am filled with Hope.

I have been Skyping. Yep, my husband and I have gotten hooked on Skype. If you have a camera on your computer, you need to try Skype. All my children and a few friends have cameras so we can talk back and forth and see each other. The picture quality is wonderful. A few years back I talked with my daughter Jaime on the computer and the video quality was so poor and there was always a delay. Not any more. Its just like being in the room with the person you are skyping with. I skype everyday with my daughter Katie and baby Anthony. He is so funny, he now tries to climb up to get to the computer because he knows we are in there.
My Jaime and her husband had a New Years Party at their home last night in Virginia and she set up her computer so that her dad and I could be there without being there. It was fun and I got to talk to a lot of good friends and relatives we have not talked to or seen in awhile. We welcomed the New Year in all together. What fun.

I am not making any resolutions, I never stick to them. I usually have forgetten about them before January 1st is over. LOL This year I will just make wishes. I wish that I could stitch more, I wish that I could blog more, I wish that I could be healthier. There now, those are not wishing for too much. Right? I was thinking they are not impossible wishes and they are all things that I can work on.

Yesterday, I received a lovely gift in the mail from my friend Janice. I had to share it with all of you. She has spoiled me rotten this year. Thank you Janice, I love this and will treasure it. I also love the finishing, its such a great idea.


and here is the back:

Isn't it lovely?
Happy New Year to all of you. May all your new year wishes come true. Be back soon.

Sharon xoxo

Happy New Year, Sharon! Isn't Skype wonderful? My son uses it to talk to his friends when they're at college. We used it when the DD was in Spain. What fun to be at Jaime's New Year party virtually! I love the beautiful piece Janice sent you!

Such a nice little gift. And enjoy skyping with your daughter and your little grandson.
I don't make resolutions either but I put up some stitching goals. Not because I really think that I can accomplish everything but just for the fun of browsing all my stash and finding new old charts and UFOs.
I hope your wishes will come true in 2010. Happy New Year.

So happy that you received your ornament, Sharon. It was a pleasure to stitch it for you.

Happy New Year!
