Happy New Year!

My oh my, where did this year go?

I managed a very last minute Christmas stitching present, it's a modified version of a new kit from Shepherd's Bush made into an ornament:

Shepherd's Bush - Come

I can finally reveal one of the reasons this year has been so crazy and why I've been a bit of a flake lately. :)

Diane of Sampler Cove contacted me during the summer wanting to know if I would be interested in finishing an upcoming design. I don't think either of us had an inkling at the time that the project would take on a life of it's own. She's already released the first chart - a gorgeous sampler titled Rhapsody In Red.

The second chart is ready for release shortly, the first of 3 charts of smalls using the same motifs and design elements of the large sampler.

Rhapsody In Red Part II - Sampler Cove Designs

Huswife, Biscornu and Thread Winders

There will be a fifth and final chart with a very special design to hold the smalls.

It's been a challenge working with Diane, time differences between here and Thailand, me being sick forever with a cold/strep/bronchitis, her being very patient while I made it through the Christmas rush, me being too picky, but it's oh so very rewarding to see this first set completely finished and photographed.

With that, I wish you all the very best for the New Year!

In A Nutshell.....

Life has been insane these past few months, I'm alive, perhaps dragging my fanny a bit, but still alive. Nothing like receiving daily e-mails asking if I'm okay to make me realize just how long ago my last post was. :)

A few highlights in pictures:

My first Trick or Treater the past 2 years, isn't she adorable?

An unexpected treat sent by a lovely lady who shall remain nameless, thank you again!

A long awaited fall season finally arrived

bringing the last blooms of the season

and finally the first snowfall that somehow made it's way on to the front porch.

Periwinkle Promises - 2004 JCS Christmas Ornaments Issue

The only stitching since I can't remember when - a biscornu for a Christmas exchange on the Just A Thought bulletin board.

To those who have been waiting and waiting and still waiting on long overdue replies to your e-mails, I'm starting to catch up - I think my draft box has more e-mails than my inbox - you'll be hearing from me soon. :)

Thanks for visiting - I really do appreciate it.

Happy Holidays!
