Hi Well, the holiday season is here. I remember thinking in the summer, oh it is a ways away, but it came quickly. I am busy organizing and finishing some things before the New Year. I like to start a new project on New year's day but also like to have a few things cleaned up. 2015 will have some exciting events for me...can't share yet...it is hard to keep a secret! I hope you 2015 is full of stitching and good health! Happy Holidays! All the best in 2015!

Hi We are half way through the summer and when I look at all I have achieved so far this summer, all I can say is wow! This has probably been my most creative and productive summer yet. While I have been stitching new designs, I have a few that are being published as we speak. The latest Cross Stitch and Needlework issue features an article I wrote about reversible blackwork, as well as, a design for an autumn bookmark. It does show some of my other reversible blackwork pieces.

Well, the sun is shining and it is very busy. I am playing catch up on a few projects and trying to complete some new designs. It is nice to check things off as I get them done. Sitting by the water and stitching is definitely the way to spend these summer days. I hope you are enjoying the summer as well. I promise to post in August and try to get beck into routine with this blog. Happy Stitching ! Kim

Hi A new year, and a very busy start! I have been working on designs I sketched as fundraisers for EAC Seminar 2016. My guild along with four other guilds are working together to put this Seminar in place. It is interesting to learn the process. I am almost done my designs....one to go. I would love to post them but they have to stay a surprised... The EAC cyber guild is very active. This guild is known as Virtual Threads. It is quite the energetic group. We have many things going on. I am running a Stitch a Month project. We are taking one stitch and on a small linen page, creating variations of that stitch. These linen pages will later be anchored to felt and then made into a book. For some, they wished a sampler and I have given them a pattern for that with each square of the sampler being a stitch. There are lots of opportunities to "make it your own" with linen choice, threads and colours. Our next meeting starts this Monday. I am working on a sampler through EGA Cyberstitchers. It is a neat sampler. I decided to complete the sampler over 2 instead of over 1... I have a couple designs to send to magazines now, will let you know how that goes too. I hope your new year has started of well! Happy Stitching Beamish
