About Me

I'm in my 40's, married to my best friend and we have 2 girls (19 & 11). I love all kinds of needlework, especially cross stitch, specifically samplers and French & Italian designs.

My first completed cross stitch

I've only been stitching about 4 years (although I learned from my mom at a very young age, I didn't pick it up until 4 years ago...all that time I wasted, lol).  Here is a pic of my very first completed and framed piece:  Can you tell I framed it?  It's a little crooked, lol.

If I remember correctly, the designer is Sandy Phipps.  All I knew was Hobby Lobby back then, lol.
I thought it turned out very nicely :o)  Don't look at the back, though!
So in just 4 short years I have accumulated more stash than I can stitch in several lifetimes!  My DH just doesn't get it, lol.  He collects guitars, which is much more expensive, right????
Actually he is glad that I stitch.  Stitching calms me and centers me and it really helped me overcome an extremely difficult time in my life.  Long live stitching!!!
