“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

(Poem: William Arthur Ward)

This poem says it all for me! These words are perfect for my New Year's resolution! Simple and to the point, to live my life to the fullest and to the best of my ability. To let go of fear and to enjoy every moment of every day, to free myself from worry and to release the need to be serious about trivial things, and most of all to allow love and laughter to surround me always!

What are your New Year Resolutions? Do you have any? Or don't you bother making any?

Did you know that about 4000 years ago, the ancient Babylonians were the first people to make New Year's resolutions? Each year in mid-March (the beginning of their year) when the crops were planted, celebrations were held in honour of the New Year!

If you do make a New Year resolution for yourself, and you wish to share, please do so in the comments at end of blog OR on my Facebook page here.

In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy New Year and may you always have lots of sunshine, happiness, health and prosperity! May you always be happy!

May you ALL have wonderful 2018 year, crocheting and knitting many projects and conquering new techniques and stitches.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported my creative crochet and knit works during 2017.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for buying my patterns and for your lovely comments. 

As soon as the holiday period is over I will be back in the New Year with new designs I managed to crochet and knit during December.

May the New Year 2018 bring you
Love, peace and happiness,
Now and Forever!

Ciao Ciao!
