This time last year we were in the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia, enjoying the magnificence of God’s creation. It is really very strange to think that our Ethiopian experience was a year ago.
The past year has been a really good one for me both personally and professionally. We had our fantastic Ethiopian sojourn, I remained well (no Chronic Fatigue Syndrome relapses!), and my two stitch dictionaries have been great successes.
Not being a tea leaf reader, I have no idea what this year holds, but I hope that it brings the completion of my next book, which will be on Portuguese embroidery. While I do set personal goals for my work, I am more flexible with them now, post CFS. I need to be kind to myself. I look forward to what my God has in store for me.
I hope that 2011 is a year when you are kind to yourself, and life is kind to you.
