A decision has been made. 2023 will be my retirement year. I will be slowing down to a pace I have never tried before. The time has come. The target date is November 21, 2023.
I am not unhappy with this decision. In fact, all is good with my heart. There has been such joy in being a needlepoint pumpkin farmer and a tuffet maker. Two careers that never entered my mind when I was a youngster, and everyone asked me “what do you want to be when you grow up?”
I am not sure what I will do with my time. There has never been a time in my life when I have not been creating something. I have been noodling on a few ideas. Watch this space and I will let you know.
All needlepoint pillows, tuffets, slips, and Heirloom Needlepoint Pumpkins (tm) are handmade in our South Dakota studio, but all the needlepoints are handmade by 1000s of unknown hands over a span of many, many years. Every needlepoint has a story to tell.
