Goodbye ... and ......Hello!

Goodbye 2007 ...... Hello 2008.

Wishing all my tatting buddies and all crafting friends a very Happy New Year. May all of us be blessed with good health and happiness, and the new year be full of good tidings.

Thank you for allowing me to get to know you, in person or through your writings and through the e-mails that we have exchanged. I am looking forward to a more exciting 2008 and I hope that this friendship will go on for a very long time.

I have a few plans for the coming year -

1. Properly write down all the patterns for the tatting designs that I have come up with. Right now most are handwritten sketches and notes in my sketchbook.

2. Get a book out on tatting ... maybe.....

3. I will NOT stop designing, I promise.

4. Lose some weight, :-D - say another 5kg and not put it back on ha...ha.... I have to make sure I go for my 30 minutes brisk walking every morning.

6. Finish, yes.... really finish my WIP, especially the big tablecloth.

Yes, this one, and it has not even covered half of this 8-seater dining table. Hmmm... maybe getting a smaller dining table will get it finished faster.

I think I have my work cut out for the whole of 2008. Updates will come throughout the year.


  1. Happy New Year to you Jon and thanks for your best wishes to all of us. I hope we have as much fun in 2008 as we have in 2007 and accomplish as much. I have learned so much and you have been a big part of that. I would love to see a book from you. That would be great and I know you could do it. You have lots of good goals for next year. I try not to set my goals too high so I won't be disappointed. LOL
    The tablecloth is lovely. You are much braver than I am.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to you Faizon! Let us all 'work' towards a great one. I think we ALL need to lose some kilos :(

  3. Thank you, and Happy New Year to you, too! I do hope you get a book finished. I'm sure it will be wonderful!

  4. Happy New Year Jon. I have just tagged you for a Make My Day Award for inspiration. Rules are on my blog

  5. Happy New Year, Jon, from me too - it's been lovely getting to know you this last year.
    That tablecloth is just stunning!!! May I ask which pattern you are using? "One day" I must begin one as well, we are moving house and one of my first purchases will be a large 8-seater table... I love your colour scheme.
    It's all very inspiring.
