Throughout my whole life, whenever anyone walked into our home – be it stranger or friend, seldom seen or always around – my Dad always greeted every visitor the same way:
Mom and Dad wanted our home to feel like their home. They wanted every visitor to be at home.
And to this very day, my dad still greets every visitor the same way: a warm handshake, a big smile, and a hearty Welcome Home!
Today, I want to welcome you home the same way – to my new online home, right here at Needle ‘n Thread!

Do you have an embroidery wish list? Those things you want to do, that keep adding up in a long, never-ending list of Stitching Adventures?
I do. If I look at it as a whole, I realize that life is probably too short to fit it all in. So I like to break it down a bit.
Before January struck and the year turned over, I made a list of Embroidery (and other needlework-related) Adventures for 2016.
In the last few weeks, I’ve mapped out my Plan of Attack for 2016. Now that I’ve done that, I can share with you my official 2016 list with greater confidence that we might actually see most of it!
The funny thing is, even my yearly list is a bit much. In reality, I know I won’t complete everything on it, but I’ll at least get it started.
I figure if I aim high, then when I land at the end of the year, I’ll be further along than otherwise.

We’re almost finished with the tulip monogram alphabet! Today, I’m adding four of the last six letters of the alphabet to the collection, for your embroidery pleasure.
Granted, U and X are not too commonly seen used as decorative initials and monograms, the other two – W and V – are a little more in demand, so I’m glad to be able to get these out to those of you waiting for them.
After the monograms, and little catch-up on news and some updates.
