resolutions, goals, words?

For 2015 a lot of bloggers are choosing a word to live by, some are making resolutions or setting goals, and others are just carrying on as usual.  Choosing a word is far too profound for me and my only goal is to remember to write 2015 ... so far so good.  ^^   This month is flying by and that's unusual for January - this being our coldest month and a long month it usually drags on.  Mind you, yesterday was +3C, which was downright balmy. 

I made a postcard ... wanted to see if my idea to use felt was workable.  The polar bear design is from Lia.



Since moose live in our neck of the woods I couldn't resist stitching this one by Luli - I love her designs!





My numbers lining up last month proved lucky for me ...

These lovely goodies arrived by mail from Maminti - her work is exquisite.  The chocolates were so good that there was only one available for the photo shoot.  ^^






I won this gorgeous packet of charm squares from Julia who was part of  Blogathon Canada. I was in love with them as soon as I saw them so I was ecstatic that they were mine!   I was hesitant to fan them out (and could have done a better job) because I can never get them properly squared up again but after doing so I realized that I had a wee box that would be perfect for storing charm squares.  I have plans for these lovelies. ^^



 My best friend sent us this beauty ......  it graced our Christmas tree and now has place of honour in a basket of goodies.

Hi Kate! Lovely gifts you received, I love the one that says "Bless this Nest". Super cute the polar bear and moose. In an italian museum I saw a embalmed moose and I was completely amazed at its size, I felt so small but it's a beautiful animal.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Hugs and love from Portugal,

I'm with you Kate - simply remembering that it's 2015 is good enough for me right now!

Polar bear and moose are finished perfectly, they look so very nice. I have never tried working with felt, if I had time to start a new hobby it would be felting or crocheting.

I had to shut down and delete my old blog sometime during the last year, then in the fall or so I decided to give it another try so now I do have a blog again. Until a few days ago I had issues with leaving comments so I wasn't as active with blogging. For 2015, I hope to post more often, read and comment more often as well.
