The new year usually means a fresh start and new projects, but I'm in the middle of a big one and so the holidays this year were a chance for me to put in some long hours of embroidery without the usual distractions of life, work and play. It's been quite blissful, and relaxing once all the preparation work was complete and I could just sit and stitch.
I'm taken care of for the next while, but if you're on the lookout for new projects to kick off the year and haven't yet gotten hold of a copy of Embroidery Ideas, it's now also available as a digital edition on US platform Zinio.
With 20 projects comprising 36 different designs, there's bound to be something that appeals to you. And at just $6.49, there's really no reason not to indulge.
Other than that, life gets back to normal next week and I'm feeling rather excited and positive about what 2015 may bring. Hopefully it's a good year for us all.
