Welcome to my little corner of cyber space! After TONS of encouragement from ladies from the yahoo groups I belong to I finally started my own blog. Grab a comfy chair, a cup of tea and let's get to know one another! Since everything is new to me, I'm not sure exactly what I will put on this blog, but some of my interests are spending time with my family, cross stitching, stamp collecting, sudoku puzzles, reading and movies. I'm currently a stay at home Mom and from the looks of things that's not going to change for a while, though I would love to have a job that I wake up every morning excited to sink my teeth into.
For the ladies in my yahoo group, here's a taste of what I'm working on!
Above you'll find my spot sampler from Wiehenburg spot sampler mystery SAL (I am REALLY behind in this one!). The link to this one is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spot-sampler-mystery-2008/ It is stitched on 36 ct Clay over one using Egyptian Nights from The Thread Gatherer Silk-n-colors
To the right you'll see Grand ABC from Gazette 94. The link to this one is http://gazette94.blogspot.com/ It is stitched on 36 ct Natural linen over one using DMC 815 and DMC 3865
