I couldn't let the holiday pass without wishing everyone a very merry Christmas! Whether or not you celebrate this particular occasion, I hope the season is finding you happy and healthy.
Not living close to any extended family, our little tribe of four has had a nice, quiet day. My two boys have spent the day in their pajamas as they tend to do just once a year. My husband and I have enjoyed a day of true relaxation. The house feels peaceful and I couldn't ask for more.
I tend to reflect on the year as it comes to a close. I guess we all do some of that. I always have more that I want to accomplish, but I try to take stock in what I have done over the months and to be satisfied.
I seemed to have blogged a bit less this year, but at the same time, I've had more visitors than ever coming to Wind Rose. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and I hope you have enjoyed the patterns and the posts you have discovered here.
Next year I hope to continue to offer more designs and to improve upon the ones that I've already written. As questions and comments come in, I see the opportunity to make them even better. I just joined the Crochet Guild of America. If you happen to be a member too, my user name is jennofwindrose as in Jenn of Wind Rose. I'm hoping it will be a place to meet and mingle with other crochet enthusiasts and learn even more of my favorite craft.
Of course I'll be dyeing plenty of wool in the months to come. I've even decided to add a design your own sampler option at Wind Rose on Etsy. The felting community often has need of very small quantities and this will make it possible to buy just what is needed in a selection of colors. I'm hoping that will be a nice addition for 2012.
To all of the customers and visitors of Wind Rose Fiber Studio, thank you for a wonderful year!
