I really loved my Christmas tree this year. We got a new one for our new space and it worked so well. I just took it down and I didn't really want to. Ready to be packed up!

I am so sorry to tell you that The Needle Works here in Austin is closing March 16! I know that Colleen has been trying to sell the business for six months but has had no serious inquiries. There is a video on her website if you would like to hear her talk about it. The SWANS are so sad. I guess I better hustle up a new dining table since we will be stitching at each other's homes. My DR is empty right now(except for the new rug I got for Christmas).
Amy's Golden Strand is having a January sale with 25% off. For the first time ever it includes stitch guides. I am about to go broke!

Happy New Year to all my stitching friends! Any stitching resolutions? I resolve to let stitching consume most of 2019! I have three nativity sets going and I would really like to finish them up!

For those who want to be in the know I stitched the stocking in the upper righthand corner for ML. I received the beautiful star shaped nativity scene in the lower right. I almost burst into tears when I opened it. I collect nativities and this is a sweet sweet addition from DC. Merry Christmas!

Each year we draw the name of a fellow SWAN and stitch an ornament. The exchange at the annual party is also a reveal. We keep the name we drew and the ornament a secret from each other until the big moment. It is truly special! Here are this year's charmers.
