Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! I hope your 2019 is filled with happiness, good health, and plenty of stitching! It is hard to believe that the holidays are behind us and it is time to get back to the regular rhythm of life and work. (We actually have one more large family gathering this weekend so that will ease the transition back to our everyday routine.) We spent Christmas Day and New Year’s Day with our children and grandchildren. Sharing food and fun with the ones you hold dear is a great way to celebrate!
While many companies and designers took time off over the holidays, the new designs still kept coming! Many are Christmas designs but that is fine with me! I like stitching Christmas things in January when the deadlines are over and it feels virtuous to be planning ahead for next Christmas. We have two new samplers from Hands Across the Sea, five new charts from Joan Elliott, a CUTE book from Sue Hillis called Home for the Holidays and two more Gingerbread charts from Victoria Sampler. Take a peak at these and all of the other new arrivals at https://www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm.
Have a great new year and resolve to spend more time with a needle in your hand!
