Happy New Year from Graceful Embroidery

Since releasing my Celtic Angel I have been looking at her on the top of my Christmas tree and it has been become very obvious to me that she needs the option of another set of larger upright wings! I designed them last evening and will be working on them in the next few weeks, and then the set of designs will be updated to include this new option for you all at no extra cost. It is also my plan to create another angel with a different theme, for next Christmas but as yet I only have a few ideas in mind. Watch out for notifications.


Have you seen the New Years design that is being given away at Graceful Embroidery? Email me as soon as possible if you want to receive this design which has been divided up into several parts with Outline alignment stitches (OAS) so you can place them accurately.


The design is a compilation of elements from quite a few of my collections and I have given it a touch of spring. Believe it or not, I have daffodils coming out in my garden because it has been so mild her in southern England, and my fuchsias are all sprouting new shoots having never really been knocked back by a frost as yet. I suspect that proper winter weather will arrive soon and totally confuse my garden plants, but it is good to consider the wonder of a real spring is only a few months away.

Thank you for following my blog and I hope to share many more of my embroidery and digitising experiences with you in the coming year! Happy New year from Hazel

  2. Hi Hazel..I would love to receive your New Year’s design…It is lovely!  I would appreciate your sending it to me at kdiemert@sbcglobal at your earliest convenience…Happy New Year to you and yours…Kim

  3. Hazel, I would love to receive the New Years free design. It is very pretty and I’m sure I can find something to stitch it out on. Thank you so much for your beautiful work. Debbie

  4. I purchased your Celtic Angel to make for my brother-in-law in memory of my sister Hazel who passed away November 2015. You released it near her birthday December 16th and it felt fitting as a remembrance of her. Thanks for adding the extra large wings, I think that will just add to her beautiful appearance.

  5. Hazel, Because I love your designs, I would ask kindly of you to receive the New Years design. This design is perfect for so many things so I wonder if the words could be left off? I’m working on a quilt for my husband that has some flowers in the designs and would like to put a saying in the middle (like “Love you beyond words”). Thanking you in advance for all your designs, including the free ones! Blessings to you Margaret

  11. Dearest Hazel. What a beautiful design. I have been away and now trying to play catch up. If I am requesting this New Year’s design in the wrong place, I apologize in advance. I will attempt to go through all of my old emails and check for it.

  12. Dear Hazel, Greetings and a very happy, peaceful and blessed New year to you and your loved ones. First I must commend you on such a successful Anniversary Celebration.. Sew many took notice of all the beautiful designs that were given so freely and I must say so many happy customers . What a generous Lady you are. Thank you so very much. One slight question on that. I know I have been a member for a long time but was wondering If I might be in the “Diamond member” category.. I know I have followed you for some time with sincere interest in the beauties you create. Time sure flies by at my young age of 80 but my interest is still embroidery and is less and less HOUSEWORK…UGH…Still love baking, though. Nuff of me. In your last letter, you mention a New Years design coming out!! WhooooWhee. May I be so bold as to ask that I may be put on the list to receive one? Who wouldn’t want one?….Great center piece for the serving table for New Years eve Party!!! Well, enough of me and my thoughts today.. God Bless You in all you do, all you accomplish, and good health always, Betty Morgan

  20. Hazel, I would love to have the New Years design. I looked on the site but have not found it. It has been very warm in Fl so far this winter, more like spring, no cool days, in fact some hot and humid. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Janet
