So tomorrow is going to be a day packed full of sewing for me and finalising patterns and working on the website so people can obtain patterns, kits, and special goods made and things to assist you with my patterns.  I am hoping to get your Bom done on time this month and I have lots of ideas going through my head for the coming year.

I hope you have all had a great time whilst I have been away!  

I will be linking to slow stitching Sunday with Kathy to show my progress on my Shashiko that I am finishing tonight.  Have a wonderful day and look out for the upcoming posts on my progress of patterns and goods.

so until next time, 

Keep smiling, creating and having fun.
