My apologies for not doing this sooner, I was having webserver changes which changed other things.... you know how that goes, but finally here we are. It is almost the middle of December and Christmas is around the corner. I do hope that you all are able to enjoy some stitching, family and friends time. It seems that the lead up to the season becomes so frantic that we forget to enjoy some of our favourite things to do. Did you see the ornament issue? I hope you got a chance to see Christmas Tree One and Christmas Tree Two in the Just Cross Stitch Sept./Oct. Issue and the Ornament issue. They were such fun for me to stitch, I am working on something for next year with the same idea as I liked it so much....either an ornament, bell or candy cane....or?
Due to the full event schedule last year and this year I haven't had as many designs for general publishing as I would have liked. It adds up and creates a very small window for other designs. I am working on quite a few and hope that I finish some of these in this year to come.
But I am madly in the process of getting all the patterns ready for printing for Nashville Needlework Market again. I have a few lined up and will have some new additions to series and some other interesting designs. I hope to start a whole new series and will keep you in suspense as to what it might be! I have another cool thing in the works too, so keep posted and I promise to be a bit quicker with an update, but truly events for most of October and then regrouping and trying to finish the new designs for events and cleaning up and bringing to the printer the newest ones it seems I always run out of time
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and encouragement this year. I am blessed to have you all in my life and it truly is the richer for it. Our shared love of stitching is something that people who don't stitch miss out on!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and the very best of wishes for a great 2008!
