Happy New Year!
It has been one crazy year at The Enriched Stitch!
Between starting my own wholesale line of canvases, purchasing Amanda Lawford and DC Designs, and everything else that goes on here day in and day out . . .I was exhausted! I desperately needed the last week off. And what do you think I did all week . . .worked of course . . .but in my pj’s.
I’ve been furiously stitching away new models for the TNNA show at the end of the month, writing stitch guides, building a new website, updating price lists and hanging out with my little guy and the family. I have over 100 new designs that will come out at the end of the month, so keep your eyes peeled for all the exciting things coming from the Vallerie Needlepoint Gallery.
Unfortunately I can’t show you what I’ve been working on lately, you’ll just have to wait a few more weeks. But here’s the year in review of everything I stitched in 2017.

Phew! That’s 34 pieces that I can find. Seems a little light for me this year. But then again, I’ve stitched about a dozen pieces that I’m not sharing yet.
2017 was a great year, both personally and professionally. 2018 is going to be even better! I have so many plans for this year . . . new clubs, classes, new canvas designs . . .my brain is always working on overload. Just ask the girls in the shop.
Let’s raise a glass and toast to the upcoming year!
