Plans for 2019

As with all of us, the beginning of a new year includes ideas for what we’d like to accomplish. My plans for 2019 were pretty extensive; they included finishing my City and Guilds Course, launching the Trevelyon’s Pocket course, finally holding classes in my new studio, designing and embroidering a design that includes a lion from Trevelyon’s Miscellany, finishing the Queen’s Pomegranate design I’ve begun…and much more!

But last week I got some news that’s putting everything on hold.

In the next months I won’t be designing, embroidering, writing posts or answering emails. On Monday I’m having surgery and will be recovering for the next 4 – 6 weeks.

If you want details, here is a link to a letter I wrote to my students, readers and friends. If you don’t need or want details, I understand.

Look for me to be active again sometime towards the end of February/beginning of March. Until then, have a happy start to 2019!

  1. I’m so sorry you’re going through this, but it does sound like you have a great medical team. Take care of yourself and heal.

  2. Dang it! We don’t always get to choose our paths, do we? But I’m guessing you’ll follow this one in your own creative style. Wishing you energy and fresh eyes for every day.

  3. Hoping for a quick recovery and caring doctors – I’ve been on the breast cancer journey twice now and I’m wishing you strength and joy. Youtube and Instagram have been a good source of encouragement for me, too. But especially embroidery! <3

  4. Kathy,
    I am so glad you caught it early. Cancer is such a terrible disease. Wishing you all the best for a successful operation and a speedy recovery. Wishing you much health, happiness and prosperity in the future.

  5. Looking forward to your full recovery and and your new needlework creations. God bless you as you go through this process.

  6. Dearest Kathy,
    I lost touch with you, had written toyou everal times and had no replies. I wondered if you were still in Germany or? I lost my computer sue to hacking, so I assume that is where my replies went?
    I was thrilled to see this site of yours while reading someone else’s. Being a cancer survivor I am happy to hear you are well into recovery. My prayers and best wishes for you during these stressful times.
    Love, Velia
