It's taken ages because I really did think ALB Cross Stitch would be no more when the VAT changes hit - but TWO new designs are now at the framer's.
One is a new Lady Elinor whose slogan expresses exactly how I feel these days. The other is a new character - Lady Maud, whose costume places her around 100 years before Lady Elinor. At least, I think it does. I have had a tidy up of my 'inspiration' pile (books, magazines, articles, etc) and now I can't find anything. This includes my address book, which is not helpful at this time of year.
That would be a digression if it were not for the fact that the reference to the time of year is an explanation of why they won't be available until some point in the new year - the framer I use has a lot of Christmas deadlines to meet.
Still, unlike last year it means I can approach the new year with the knowledge that there will be new designs available, whereas last year I was looking at finding a new place to sell them. Things, as the song says, can only get better!
