Happy New Year!  And as we say it here in Hawaii, "Hauoli Makahiki Hou!".  Last night my family and I stayed home and enjoyed our quiet night alone to avoid the New Years Eve hustle, bustle and traffic.  We celebrated New Years with our own fireworks and fun.  It was great for a change to just stay home and relax after a busy, busy holiday season.  Every New Years Eve,  I cook up an Asian noodle dish as I have learned it represents longevity which may have proved to be as my dad lived to be 103 years and six months young with no illness and a mind still as sharp as a pin so I carry that belief w/me for my family.

Okay, on to New Years Resolution.....I pulled up my list from last year (Goodness, I've got go get with the program!) and crossed off those that I accomplished:

1.  Start the completion process of my VW Van wall quilt.
2.  Start the completion process of Gail Pan's Christmas BOM wall quilt  (pattern came from here)
3.  Start the completion process of Gail Pan's Christmas pattern (pattern came from here)
4.  Start a selvedge edge project (potholder and/or totes)  (see here)
5.  Do a Which Witch Halloween wall quilt (similar to my Which Elf wall quilt)
6.  Dust off and start at least two quilt patterns I haven't touch yet from my quilt pattern box (would you believe some of them are as old as m 15 year old son?)
7.  Start my VWBug BOM wall quilt
8.  Make Mahalo (Thank you) totes for my kid's teachers, coach mom's etc. (an idea I got from my ever so talented cousin on Oahu, let's just call her "Aunty Holly")   I don't have a pic of this as they were Xmas gifts and had to send them off but they were from
9.  Start the slip covers for my sofa (I finally found more fabric and actually starting cutting them...yay!)
10. Last but not least, give my husband, son and daughter all the love support they need from me and hope I am able to deliver only the best to them.  DONE, DAILY.
Three out of Ten,,OK, no excuse now 'cause if these projects are still incomplete next year, then I just don't know what to say.  Hope the procastination bug don't bite me this year.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I wish only good things to come for everyone.  Peace on Earth!

What dish did you cook up for New Years and what does it represent?
