A Finish on the Fifth Day of the New Year

      I had set myself a deadline of December 31st to finish Emma Miles and it didn't happen. It took me until the 5th day of the New Year before I could call Emma done. I love this sampler!

       I was planning on both a Christmas Day and a New Year's Day start but that didn't quite work out. So I'll call my Adam and Eve start the Holiday 2012 new start. I love the red that Tanya choose for the alphabets.

      I've added a Linen for Sale page which can be found under the header. I may just have that perfect piece of linen you need for one of your 2013 stitching projects.

      There are two great opportunities that I wouldn't want you to miss. First up is Nicola's generous giveaway of the Blue Ribbon Sampler chart. Read about it on her blog post, Stitching by a Cornish Sea Shore.

      In May of 2012 I began my journey into 17th Century Embroidery and the designing and making of my own casket. Tricia Wilson Nguyen of Thistle Threads began her on-line univerisity course, Cabinet of Curiosities. I cannot say enough good things about this course. It is by far the best needlework course I have ever had the opportunity to take. If you missed out on the being part of the original class Tricia has opened up registration for the Encore class. Read all about it on her blog . I hope you'll consider registering for the course. I doubt that you will regret making that decision.

I love Corgi bellies.
