It has been crazy cold here for a week and we had temps all the way down to MINUS 46 F last Friday morning - eeeeek! So I have stayed inside and designed the first 3 months of a new monthly design that I will release at Nashville Market this year - I am almost finished stitching the design for January and I know you will love the designs. I'll try and post a teaser photo later this week. In the meantime I am going to post more delightfully warm photos from December's vacation to keep everyone warm!!!

First off it has been far too long since I last posted - sorry except to say that everyday life got in the way! We had lots of events going on at school for holiday themed events that needed Mom volunteers - check! Packing for 4 people to go away for 11 days...check! Renewing your wedding vows after originally getting married at City Hall in a black business suit on your lunch hour?...check!
Off to the Bahamas we went - enjoyed our favorite resort on Paradise Island (Atlantis) and renewed our wedding vows with our 2 kiddos being part of it - a great experience indeed and long overdue. The day we arrived there was a temperature difference of 110 degrees F from the time we got up in Fargo to the time we went to sleep in the Bahamas 😳😱! We spent time at the beach, the pool, enjoying the water park at Atlantis and really just relaxing a lot and enjoying each other's company - mission accomplished! I will share some of the sights of the Bahamas and promise that I have some terrific plans for new designs coming out this year from Pickle Barrel Designs so keep checking in for updates!
Happy New Year! 🤗

I am very excited to share with everyone that I have two designs in the brand new issue of Just Cross Stitch in the February 2010 issue! When you see the "Love is a Journey" just know that I stitched that design 3 separate times until I was 100% happy with the colors working together - I think it turned out great!
I am still not able to post blog updates using my iPhone and it continues to make me crazy - so if I am slow to update my blog that is why! I am finally having my website updated for the new year and am excited to get it back up and running and most importantly UPDATED!!!
