A lot has happened in the almost year since I last posted. I lost my beloved on September 16, 2021. I won't go into the details at this time. It is still very devastating to me . It was very sudden and the shock and horror still come back at times with the same rawness as when it first happened, But in this almost year since it happened, I have found my sea legs.

Although I missed the fall Needlework Expo, I was eventually able to release all of my patterns and ended up doing pretty well. I made it through the holidays with the help of my amazing kids, and even managed to make it to Nashville Needlework Market in the spring.
Then God gave me a gift, (among others) and my 2 daughters began to cross stitch! They are hooked and we have even started a floss tube together;
I had a new release in June and my daughters and I went to a retreat with Vickie Jennet of Needlework Press, put on by Tomorrows Heirlooms. We had a blast!
Then in July I bought a new house and moved in!I have relocated in Southern Wisconsin to be closer to Lucas and Aidan. Chelsea has moved as well, and we are now 15 minutes apart. I am still getting settled and living out of boxes somewhat, but I love my new house and I feel very safe and comfortable here.
I was also able to release 2 new charts. Here are all of my releases since last fall of 2021:
NW-78 Advice From A Sunflower
NW-79 Pumpkin Folk
NW-80 Bitty Barns 2
NW-81 Blessings Be Thine
NW-82 Gathering Pumpkins
NW-83 Gathering Holly
NW-84 Hop To It!
NW-85 Margaret Robertson 1855
NW-86 1884 Home Sampler
NW-87 Mary Hill 1826
NW-88 Running Bunny Biscornu
NW-89 Bee Sweet
NW-91 Redwork Pears
I think that catches us up. I am now getting ready for Needlework Expo 2022, which will be at the end of August. I'm excited for my new releases, I hope you are too!
