Happy Christmas Eve!
My big plans for today – to share with you a whole completed stack of red Christmas napkins embroidered with snowflakes using the patterns I’ve been posting on Needle ‘n Thread lately – have fizzled to naught!
Unless I sprout another eight arms and acquire another eight hours in the day, they won’t, alas, be finished. So I’ve decided to do what any sane person would do, and let it go. There’s always next year!
As I mentioned the other day, I’ll be taking my First Ever Long Break from Needle ‘n Thread this holiday season. I’ll be officially “on vacation” beginning tomorrow through January 4th. I’ll still check in on the website to moderate comments and to answer email when I can, though, so I’m not abandoning you altogether. I just won’t be posting any new articles until January 4th.
And in the background, I’ll be working on a few projects and tweaking my publishing and project schedule for 2016. I’m drumming up a lot of new embroidery-related content for the upcoming year, and I’ve got a few surprises up my sleeve for you, too – not the least of which is the launch of the new Needle ‘n Thread, which will happen early in 2016. I’ll warn you first!
For those who have asked for a personal update, I’ve written you this short Christmas letter. If you want to read it, feel free. If you don’t – that’s fine, too!
I hope that, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re happy, healthy, and surrounded by those you love.
May your Christmas be filled with joy and all kinds of good things, and may 2016 bring you an abundance of blessings!
