Whoops! Another Year!

Well, needless to say time has quickly passed and life has moved on at a pace I have been chasing to keep up. I am just popping in to say 'Hello'! Once again thank you all for your kind messages. We are here and the year has been kind. And now we are snuggling into our home for our second Christmas.
There have been many highlights this year, perhaps most special to me was to take one very keen little Birder up to the Farne Islands in the North East of England. A very different landscape to our beloved Norfolk and a place to which we hope to return one day as we found it so captivating.
 There have been commissions and stitching in the midst of life's busy-ness...
 I only work to commission now and love to stitch with a particular person or event in mind...
 I am busy busy now completing one more stitchery for the year as a very special gift for a baby's first Christmas...
 There have also been Embroidery Workshops which have been a joy to teach, a new experience for me. It has been such a great pleasure to share chat and stitches with ladies who had much to teach their 'teacher'. It never ceased to amaze me how 14 people could dive into the same scrap bag and come up with so many and varied designs. I am looking forward very much to more workshops in 2012.
 So all in all a year of stitching and growing and settling. There have been a few changes here at Kitschen Pink and I have been giving a lot of thought to how my little blog should develop going forward. I have paused to think and spend time with my boy.

I shall be back in 2012, not least because I have those beautiful books which I had been sent to offer to you as giveaways. They are still sitting on my workroom desk waiting for their new homes!
I hope you will join me from time to time and share your thoughts as we used to do.
Wishing you all a beautiful and peaceful Christmas, wherever you are and whatever you have planned. t.xx
