Well now it's back to normal  after a jolly Christmas with the boys, but they have both gone back to Berlin where they are forging ahead with their lives with great gusto! Tom my eldest and his lovely girlfriend Marcella dressed up as Joseph and Mary for the Christmas children's service and really were superb at it, so good that one child rushed up to them and exclaimed " I've just been reading about you!" Proud Mother me ...

But now it's back to work again with so much to do ... This year will see a big change in the business, hopefully moving up a few notches with the launch of some new kits, both the printed panels and tapestry kits too, based on some designs my mother did 50 years ago, and the long awaited stitch cards! I have had to lose dear Sarah as she has gone to pastures new with her boyfriend to Sussex and so now will be taking on help with admin and manufacturing so I can at last get on with the new designs and building up the business, ready for the Hatch showcase in London arranged by School for Startups the wonderful but demanding course I am on. So this year will be full on!

I have had a few birthdays to make things for too ... I am finding it a little of a displacement activity too when I should be doing my accounts but all work no play as they say ... These are little felt embroidered bracelets, quite traditional I think but very satisfying to do. 

Having just begun teaching at Hoop for the new year too, a six week hand embroidery course which we began today and which will culminate in a sampler which I still have to design! News to come on that ... 
Ah much to do and post Christmas sit ups only a part of it!
