Happy New Year 2016

I'm looking forward to another great year of challenge and milestones.
I just want to thank my loyal friends for their support and caring comments on my blog during the year. You mean so much to me and I appreciate you...
This New Year's Eve,  after visiting my blogger friends, I'm  planning to take it easy with a glass of red wine or maybe two and watch a bit of TV instead of hooking. I sorted some wool worms earlier but decided  that can wait for 2016.

 My visitors are back home and the house is very quiet.
Good night.
Wishing you all good health, peace, joy, love, hope and a lot of good friends.
