Happy New Year!

Happy 2012 everyone! I had a lovely, quiet New Years Eve with Keith this year. We cooked dinner and watched the fireworks over Stockholm. Perfect after a very busy Christmas!

If anyone would like to celebrate the new year by doing a bit of embroidery, I thought I'd remind you of the New Year Embroidery Sampler I designed a few years ago. The numbers on it still say 2009 of course, but that could easily be changed. Perfect if your New Years resolution happens to be learning a few new embroidery stitches!

Several people found the time to try my sampler design back in 2009, the above image is from the (now dormant) blog Potluck Crafters. If you decide to make your own 2012 version, I would love to see it!


  1. Yay! I have my completed sampler hanging on the wall in my craft room. It was a great way to practice a lot of stitches and get going with embroidery. I love it - but don't spend as much time with it as I should, however. I just finished some work on cloth napkins rescued from the thrift store, for belated holiday gifts.

    I want to do a lot more in 2012. Thanks again for the lovely sampler that got me started!

  2. long time no see! wish you a happy 2012!
