Sorry… real life gets in the way at times. I just finished a very intense, very necessary 14 month language school. While my Finnish is greatly improved, I still have a very long way to go. But now, I am back to being able to work on my projects, look at teaching a little, restock the shop and so very much more.
I am still very actively stitching for charity. We are in the middle of doing several special request quilts for 4 priceless little boys (2 are in the quilting stage, the other 2 are still having squares done). They also have a new project where they will be making unique quilts for injured, disabled, and deceased RCMP officers.
On the horizon for my shops – NEW items. Yes… I promise some new goodies are coming. I just got a sewing machine and will be doing some smaller gift items that combine simple quilting with cross stitch. I will also have several ornament designs this year. The Rauha ornaments pictured will be finessed out a bit more and will join the shop later in the year both as finished pieces and probably as downloadable charts. I am thinking of doing them on dark blue… with white letters. I’ve also been experimenting with making my own cording. The blue on the lower ornament was the best, I think.
So, I have not gone away. 2016 is going to be a fantastic year!! I can’t wait to start showing off all the new items!
Guess that means I had better get back to work!
