Oopsie and the New Year

The new year is finally here, and with it are a lot of hopes and dreams. The year 2010 was not a happy year for many people. There seemed to be too much loss of life and tragedies. Hopefully 2011 will be better. For me I have a feeling it will be. I can honestly say that I am happy. It is not often in the past that I have said that but I am saying it now. I AM HAPPY!!!

I can tell you that 2011 will hold a lot more sewing for me and hopefully I can get my Stampin' Up business going better. I am looking forward to going to Melbourne in May and seeing friends and family I have not seen in years. I am looking forward to meeting my goal weight; holding my baby cousin for the first time; being creative; and most of all remaining positive. Life is too short to hold grudges and stew over things. Forgive and forget and get on with being happy.

Speaking of my new cousin (2nd). He is due in the next couple of weeks so I have made a soft toy for my Aunt to take with her when she goes over. His name is Oopsie and you can get the free pattern here. I would recommend that you add a seam allowance to the legs though. They turned out a tad small and I had to do a lot of manipulation for them to look good.

Have a great new year, live as if today was your last, and be happy.

Oopsie is awesome! I think his legs will get very chewed on (but that's how we'll know he's loved!)
