Wishing you a joyous Christmastide!





Wishing you a joyous Christmastide!


I've been very remiss in updating my blog over the past few months, but hope to do better in 2016. Thank you to those who checked in to see if everything was okay.

We've had lots of changes in the past months with the addition of our two granddaughters and also a move. Our new home is still about 10 minutes from our son's house and 90 minutes from our daughter's. The move happened very quickly, and we're still settling in.  Most of the boxes are now unpacked and over 190 things have been hung on the walls (mostly needlework).  I think we still have 25 or so to go.  Once things have settled down, I'll have a couple of new With My Needle designs that were stitched a few months ago.  I hope you'll enjoy them.

Merry Christmas to all of you Ellen!
The babies are too cute, and the boys too, they're getting so big. :)
Have a great day with them.

It looks like you literally have your hands full! The girls are adorable! (and of course, the grandsons, are, too) We've missed your postings but certainly understand with all the excitement in your life. Hope you have a wonderful day!

We met quite a while ago when you taught a class here in the UK for the Sampler Guild. I love those pictures of your sweet family. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Irene xxx

What a lovely photo of you with your Grandchildren.
I checked your facebook page to make sure all was well with you when you didn't blog. Looks like you have been really busy.
My New Year's resolution is to finish the huswif from your class in NZ in 2014! - I'm well on the way.
Happy New Year.

Good day, Ellen! Thank you for sharing such fabulous photos of your grandchildren! They are lovely! We hope your Christmas was full of positive emotions and moments. We stayed at Jane's parents'. It was a pleasure to gather with the family.
Blessings,
Fred and Jane

I thought I posted a message to you a couple of days ago......but somehow....it isn't here. Anyway......I am so glad to see your post. I was very concerned about you and your family, even though I knew about your new home. The class with you in Washington in the fall was a delightful. I am so happy to know you are all well. Will look forward to more posts as the weeks pass.
