Just had to share this photo of my new pattern. Just finished it. I know it is along time till Christmas, but what can I say "I love Christmas". This was so much fun to make, you will find it on the Olde Country Cupboard site. I am trying to get into spring, but having a hard time, still want to design patterns for the holidays. During the fall/winter seasons, we are so busy getting ready for our shows and pattern orders. I just didn't have time to get all the things done that I wanted.
This has been a rough year for my family, my mom has multiple scleroris. She is in her 70's and my dad is in his 80's. My dad had a stroke this past summer. My mom is bedridden now and not able to get up, my dad has to lift her, and he is not able to do it any longer. Then more bad news, my twin sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and is on Chemo now. So, in between all the their sickness, I had to come down with appendicitus and then a month later with a kidney stone. I think the kidney stone was probably the most painful thing I have ever went through in my life. So am hoping for healthier year for all of us.
