Happy New Year

I'd like to wish everyone a happy new year. Six years ago today I started this blog and I can safely say that my life has gone in directions that I never believed possible back in 2004! I'm still enjoying the opportunity to share it with you all and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who stop by and to say thank you for your comments, they are very much appreciated.

I have a couple more photos for you all then I think I'm caught up on a lot of the stitching I've been doing over the last couple of months.

First up is this years ornament for Rosie:

Home for Christmas
Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin - Home for Christmas stitched in the recommended Sampler Threads

Some of you may remember that I stitched The Drawn Threads Christmas Stitches back in spring. Well I managed to get it finished as a bellpull and up on the wall for Christmas!

Beautiful stitching and finishing and happy blogiversary!

I think our lives often go in a different direction from the one we planned. Otherwise life would be ... boring!

Hi Karoline - I hope the stress level around your house comes down in the new year. Love all the ornaments you pictured in previous posts - I'm still catching up on commenting. Your DT christmas piece worked out beautifully as a bell pull. Many happy stitches and best of luck on the "special" project - (wink) - Mel
