At the same time I always wonder just exactly where the past 12 months went and it is nice to be able to wander back through the months that past - it does appear that I kept rather busy!
I stitched - a lot!

I grew the shop - and packed kits...
|'Blue Petals' Crewel Work kit|
But most importantly - I watched the seasons change...
enjoyed time with family and friends - and made time me to appreciate the simple things...
|Picking flowers in the garden|
Apart from my computer spending time at the computer hospital with a nasty virus, I have a really good feeling about 2014. I feel more than ready to dive in with plans, dreams, changes to make and ideas to try out that I am certain will make the next 12 months fly by just as fast as the past year did.
I love your company here and feel so grateful to have met so many like-minded souls who share my passion for what can be created with just needle and thread. I hope you too will continue to enjoy your embroidery as much as I do.
