I'm excited to start this blog of my thoughts, creative projects and anything else I may want to talk about including my random thoughts. I know I'm not the only one that has them :)
I'm currently working on 2 cross stitch projects. As I learn and understand this website I'll post more details.
I've been stitching since I was 16 years old because of a Senior Project my 12th Grade English teacher assigned to every student. I wanted to do something different so I learned how to cross stitch and stitched the poem I was assigned for my paper as well as a border around it. I even learned how to mat and frame it and did it all myself. I've been hooked ever since.
I stopped for a while and picked up again about a year ago to make one for my husbands grandmother and finished it as a Christmas Gift in 2011. I was so consumed with getting it done by Christmas (which I really didn't finish it till Jan 1st ... had to give her a rain check on Christmas day, I was a 7 months pregnant and had 1 year old running around.....'nuff said LOL).
I woke up on Jan 2nd and felt that I was missing something, a few weeks went by and the cross stitch itch wouldn't go away -- I was driving my husband crazy. The gift for his grandmother took me 2 years to complete and here I was wanting to jump right on in and get another one.
I'm the type of stitcher that I like to do them for others, so the Calamine lotion finally worked on my "itch" and I found my new project. But that lotion must not worked too well because I then found a 2nd one I'm making for my husbands Mom. And most recently I've found a new website thanks to a wonderful friend of mine and I now have 6 more lined up for a total of 8!!
I'm not sure if I'll stop at 8, but I do know that I'm up for my new adventure with all my projects and this blog :)
