A Year of Changes
I’ve got a few ‘major’ changes happening in my non-stitching life this year. And that means I’ve made the decision to make some changes here on the blog over the next few months until life settles down again.
A New Year is bringing changes
I’ve got a few things going on in the first half of this year which means I’ve had to make the decision to change things up a little bit to help me keep my sanity over the coming months.
As you are probably aware, my husband and I are Australian’s who have been living in the UK for the past few years. And the time has now come for us to relocate back to Australia. This brings a fair variety of tasks to get on top of, along with a few added complications.
So, I have made the decision to help my make my life a little easier, to stop posting regular updates of my stitching progress here on my blog. There will be a monster catch up in the second half of the year, as I will be madly stitching away, trying to get as much of my RSN work done as possible in the limited time left. So there will be detailed posts on my embroidery adventures, they will just be a little delayed!
The main reason for this is that I’m not going to have a computer for a few months, and blogging from my iPad is just a little difficult, and extremely time consuming. I also feel the time spent writing, photographing and compiling the posts could probably be better spent on actually stitching the pieces.
But, I won’t disappear completely!
If you are still interested in keeping up with my embroidery over the next few months, I do have some options for you.
I will be posting updates on my Facebook page and Instagram. So feel free to follow me to get happy snaps on my various pieces that way. With Facebook, ‘they’ have made changes which means you might have to either actively seek out my page or tell Facebook to ‘show first’ anything from my page. You can follow along by clicking the buttons below or any of the other social buttons on my site in the footer or sidebar of posts.
Join my Email list
I have found it is easier to write an email than it is a blog post on the iPad, so I am planning on sending out an update each week with a bit more detail than what you will get on social media. I am hoping (the theory is as yet untested!) that I can upload photos into Mailchimp relatively easily and the process isn’t too time consuming. If I find at a certain point in the future that this too seems a little too tricky, I will let you know.
If you are interested in these regular, more detailed updates, make sure you sign up, confirm and then ‘white list’ me as a sender so you receive these updates.
Again, you can opt in to this method of keeping in touch at the bottom of this or any other post, or in the side widget.
Now – time to get stitching!
Sorry for the rather boring and bland update post today. I do hope you join me in one way or another. I will hopefully update you more fully on my current piece before ‘the move’ gets under way.
All being well, things will be back to normal in June. There will of course be some changes as I won’t be working only my RSN pieces, though at first that will be all you see as we go through the massive catch up!
All the best for 2018, and happy stitching!
