My sincere wishes go out to each of you for a very happy and peaceful 2011, full of many blessings – among them, of course, plenty of time to stitch!
Thank you, dear readers, for your inspiration, ideas, encouragement, interaction, and support during 2010! You are such a terrific group of readers – none better, I trow – and I think we have loads of fun here, don’t we? Well, I do, anyway! I have enjoyed the year blogging very much, and I look forward to charging forward into 2011 with Needle ‘n Thread.
Looking back on 2010 and forward to 2012, I have some good-bad news: Earlier this past fall, I announced (over-hastily) that I would be attending Beating Around the Bush, 2012, in Australia. Alas, that has not worked out, and I will not be attending. I made this decision after realizing that I was not capable of meeting the required deadlines for preparing teaching projects. I do appreciate the initial invitation from the kind folks at Country Bumpkin, but I am very happy with my decision. This has freed me up for other endeavors that involve Needle ‘n Thread – things I would have had to put on hold for another year. Since I will not be preparing for Beating Around the Bush this year, I will be able to prepare other things for Needle ‘n Thread, and for you, so that’s good!
In 2011, there are some fun changes coming to Needle ‘n Thread. I don’t want to say too much about them yet, because they are still under construction, but as the time draws closer, I’ll let you in on the details!
I’m looking forward to 2011, and I hope that you are, too! May it be a good year for all of us, and may God bless you and yours with joy and peace the year through!
