It is time to say goodbye to 2016. 2016 was a very busy and fulfilling year. There were many craft projects, new area of creative growth, new commitment to a healthier lifestyle and lots of traveling (road trips).
It’s time to take a few minutes to reflect on 2016 blessings. I am grateful for last year which was a very productive year. I spent a lot of time working with yarn in 2016. Knitting and crocheting helps to keep my mind active and I love the feeling I get when I complete a project as well as the sense of fulfillment and satisfaction upon learning a new skill. I made a lot of blankets.
I also ventured into a few new projects such as a couple of mermaid tails and one shark’s tail. These were fun.
I took a knitting class to learn to do a cable stitch correctly.
I also knitted a couple of triangle shawls. ( no pictures though)
Another new craft I tried was braiding. I made a braided rug using bath towels.
This turned out to be a wonderful hostess gift.
In addition, my needle crafts I have moved my creativity into the literary arena by writing a children’s book. I published my first children’s book, Bekah’s First Adventure. I started dabbling in poetry as well. I started gathering information to write another children’s book. So, I will keep you posted as to its progress.
My biggest accomplishment occurred with regard to my health. I lost 30 pounds this year thanks to Weight Watchers.
I could not have accomplished all of this with out the blessings I’ve received from our Heavenly Father. I offer up my thanksgiving to Him who continues to shower me with blessings.
