Like most of you, the next couple of weeks are going to be very busy! Starting, gulp, day after tomorrow, our home will be swarming with out-of-town guests, and the celebrating will begin. Although I couldn’t be happier, I do feel like a deer in headlights. Rather stunned. Where did all the time go? I had months to finish every thing, now I’m down to days. Fortunately, I have all my projects done except the afghan for my son and daughter-in-law, but I’m not throwing in the towel yet!
In order to really enjoy the holidays, Michelle and I are taking the next 2 weeks off. We will check comments and emails so we can answer questions, but we will not have any new blog entries. While we are off, we hope you still make use of our site, if time permits!
What do we have planned for the New Year? Plenty! To begin with, I’ve promised the pattern and directions for the Hobby Horses…that will be one of my first projects. I have been hankering to make some door stops. There are ideas for a few different kind playing gentle on my mind. You can expect to see them surfacing in January. Also, we have this lovely little button in the right column that says Crafting Glossary. Click on it and…NOTHING happens! High on my list of to-dos is to get a helpful glossary going. Because I want to work on the glossary, I decided to create some type of Glossary Project that will display all the stitches I wish to add. I haven’t totally decided on the “how” or “what” yet, but it will be a great way to expand your embroidery skills.
Because many of our projects are done with felt, as will the Glossary Project, we’ve contacted the very sweet ladies at Prairie Point Junction. This is the shop Michelle and I use for all of our felt. They have generously agreed to offer a special discount for our Crafting Club Members. When we return in January, we will post their coupon, and give you a material list for several of our up and coming projects. This is not a money making event for Michelle and I, just an opportunity to get a discount on the materials we buy anyway! So, if you get a chance, go check out Prairie Point Junction. And, if you’re like me, you’ll put together a wish list!
Michelle and I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and blessed Holiday. As we are sitting around Michelle’s roaring fire (pictured above) sipping our Holiday wassail, we will lift our glasses in a toast to you and offer up a prayer for you and yours!
