Welcoming the New Year!

I wish everyone a wonderful start to the New Year! Hopefully you'll have lots of stitching time not only today but throughout the year.

Thank you to everyone who has supported my design business. My With My Needle Facebook page now has nearly 2000 fans. Also, thank you to those who have bought my designs, contributed photos of your completed WMN projects for my blog, and taken classes. I've been blessed to make so many wonderful friends worldwide through our shared needlework passion.

I've discovered that I'm no longer getting notifications when someone signs my guest book and leaves a note there. I answer all notes I know about, but without automatic notifications I sometimes miss your notes. If you have a specific question, it's best for you to email me directly at or leave a comment under one of the blog posts. If you've left a comment on one of my blog posts and I haven't acknowledged it, it's because your email isn't fact, it's set as "no reply". There's no way for me to contact you. I feel badly about that, but unfortunately there's nothing I can do. If you aren't sure if you're set as "no reply", ask me or another Blogspot blogger to check for you. Most people who are set as "no reply" have no idea that's going on.

I didn't produce many new designs in 2014. I hope to do much better in the coming year. We had quite a year last year, and I wasn't able to fully concentrate. I hope you understand.

Although I didn't design much last year, I did stitch quite a bit. Below is a summary of my 2014 completed projects. To learn more about each and to see larger photos, just type the name in the search engine located in the sidebar on the left side of this page.

I'd like to leave you with the sentiment expressed on this vintage postcard as I wish you the best in 2015!

Even though you don't think you designed a lot, it IS a lot! :)
I'm glad you had some stitching time for yourself.
Have a great New Year Ellen.
