Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a fun Christmas season, be it with family or relaxing.  We had a lot of company and enjoyed them all.  Now it’s back to focusing on my website to get it up and running in time for January 1st, 2017.

I want to take this time to thank all the people who have followed my old blog.  It’s been in existence six years and this last year was the best statistics wise.  There were big changes on the blog in 2016. I switched my format to provide a greater variety of posts, introducing Monday’s “In My Studio…”, the Tuesday recipes, Inspiration Wednesdays, Works In Progress Thursdays, and Friday’s “Weekly Reviews”.

In 2016:

~ over 3600 people visited my old blog,

~ for almost 12,000 views,

~ it garnered over 900 likes,

~ and 213 comments.

I had people from over 60 countries visit. The bulk from the USA and Canada. But also the UK, Australia, and South Africa, among many others. I truly appreciate international interest in my work.  Thank you for your support everyone!

The most popular posts were:

~ Let’s Talk Wool Cutters,
~ Let’s Talk Frames, and
~ Natural Dyeing.

It seems people like the more informative posts that go deeper into the technicalities of rug hooking.  Next up in popularity were my About Me page and For Sale page, which is why this new website was created.

There will be some upcoming changes to the blog in the new year.  I will announce those January 2nd.

Starting January 1st you will be able to order my products online through PayPal or by personal cheque, if you reside in Canada and write on a Canadian bank cheque in Canadian funds.

For all the people who’ve supported me in the past, I thank you.  For those who are new to my website, I hope we have a good and long relationship.

This is my last post of 2016.  Have a safe and happy New Year’s everyone! 🙂
