New Beginnings in 2016

Happy New Year to you and your family! The new year is always a time for new beginnings. There is something lovely about reflecting on the year that was and looking forward to the year ahead.

It’s interesting that most people think the year ahead is going to be better than the year they had. The new year will be what it will be. It will be full of lovely surprises, a few disappointments and without doubt a few challenges along the way.

The Gingham Red blog celebrates it’s 4 birthday in July 2016. The blog has been rambling along these past four years without much focus or direction. There have been many photos of flowers and cups of tea plus a little bit of embroidery thrown in along the way. After much reflection it’s time to give the blog more direction and focus. This is the year for;

  • More embroidery charts and projects in all its forms
  • A year long embroidery project
  • Art as embroidery pieces for the shop

In the meantime the Hydrangeas in the garden continue to delight and inspire. Every time they come into the house they adorn yet another vase and add beautiful sparkles to the room;

As you spend this time reflecting on the year that was and enjoying the New Year Holiday I wish you and your family a wonderful year ahead.
