Hello, my Stitchy Friends. Thank you so much for sticking with me through this rather mixed up year. I appreciate all the emails from you checking to make sure that all is well and just to see what I’m up too. Everything is fine here, I’ve just needed more time away from blogging and the Internet than I expected. I needws to re-evaluate how I use the Internet and what I want to share.
As some of you know, I made the decision to shut down both my Instagram and Twitter accounts, and I have stepped away from my personal Facebook page a few times this year.
Don’t worry, though. This blog isn’t going anywhere. I started it way back in 2003 (the first post is 2002, but that was done in an offline mode), and I still love it. Behind the scenes I’m working on a redesign and a bit of a shift in focus. Stitching Lotus will always be about my stitching, but it will hopefully grow to into something a bit more in the near future.
“So, what about the Smalls SAL?” I can hear you asking. I know that I have really let you all down this year, and I am very sorry about that. I have had a couple of bloggers reach out to my about hosting it in 2019, and I am just waiting to hear back to finalize details. I’m sad to be passing on the reins, but I also feel that it is better in other hands since I have been so unreliable this year. (Believe me, unreliable is one word that is rarely if ever used to describe me, so this is very out of character.)
For December, I’d love it if you shared your Smalls via the comment section of this post. I’m sorry there is no link list for this month but I have shut down my account with the service provider due to my disappointment with their newly upgraded product and the on-going monthly costs.
Thank you so much for your patience and I am sorry that I wasn’t able to keep the Smalls SAL running smoothly in 2018.
Here’s to a much better 2019 full of lots of beautiful stitching!
