Happy New Year

Happy New Year
Many thanks to all of you who hosted a teaching event as well as all our new and loyal customers. 2010 has been a fantastic year. I have had the wonderful opportunities to visit Barcelona, France and Australia as well as many new states across America. Thanks to all my friendly and enthusiastic students.
I would also like to thank my committed employees Cathy, Peggy, Mary and Kelly for their commitment and enthusiasm and a special thanks to Michelle and I wish her well on her new venture abroad. Thanks to my family for all they have done in 2010 without you it would not be possible.
I have had a very special few weeks with my four kids. I have loved every minute of Andrew and Jason's visit. I wish all of you the best for 2011.
I would like to share with you our special time.
They helped me move furniture.
Cook wonderful meals.
Aimee cooked her wonderful homemade pizza.
Shared some time together laughing.
Jason treated us all to Beef Wellington for Christmas.
Watched movies and relaxed.
Had a sewing day making quilts and Aimee made these great owl doorstops.
Aimee, Kelly and Jason dyed wool for the new BOM. Zoe loved the pile of undyed wool.
We also celebrated Kelly's birthday.
I will miss our time together but I am looking forward to visiting Jason and Andrew in 2011.
Love you all


  1. The Beef Wellington looks FABULOUS! Is Jason willing to share the recipe?

  3. Oh holy cow! Looks like a lot of fun at your house. My youngest son starts culinary school this month. I wonder how long until he can make Beef Wellington? I love the doorstops. I am using a pickle jar full of yo-yos to keep my sewing room door open. Happy New Year to you and yours,
