Ahh... 'twas the week before Christmas and all through the house..... well I'd like to say I'm prepared but we have had so much snow since late November that I keep saying " oh, I'll do it tomorrow when it's not snowing...." and that day never seems to come, so today I have to go out in the snow and do things! Hope you have had a fine Christmas season and are enjoying some of your traditions that make it Christmas for you. I have done some stitching and happy for that and I have done alot of my preparation for the Nashville Needlework show, so that is great too. Often at this time of year we look back at the year it was and look forward to the year it might be. If I look back I am amazed, amazed at being able to meet you all... enjoy with you- your little spot in the world, our shared passion for stitching and all threads and fabrics that are so fun. I am humbled by the lovely work you all do and the creativity that you all in some sort possess! I am challenged by seeing your works and your enthusiasm and look forward so much to meeting you again and continuing to share our lives. It has certainly enriched mine!
When I look forward; I see new horizons and new challenges and of course some comfy repeats that I love to do. I must go add things on the Events page, but I will be in Florida in March at Needlecraft World, check with Cathy for info. I will be at Celebration of Needlework in New Hampshire in the end of April -beginning of May. In the fall in October I will be at Acorns and Threads in Portland and also one other place. Look for that to come. New for Nashville? well there will be lots, so I will keep you posted here what to look for! But we have lots of kits and samplers coming - look forward to sharing them with you.
In this holiday season, I wish you the very best. Enjoy your family and friends. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
Be Merry and Bright, Jeannette
