CELEBRATING OUR 150th READER GIVEAWAY

About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

Roses and Valentines Day

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and I saw many beautiful flowers being delivered. That made me think that I love flowers and that I should cross stitch a few flower pieces. My favorite flowers are pansies and violets. I love their faces and I just enjoy their colors. I think that the ones I like most are purple and yellow with the black face. That is until I see the light blue and yellow with the black lines and faces. I do enjoy them so. Another of my favorites is the rose. I adore pink, yellow and candy roses especially when they smell like roses. Sometimes the rose smell on roses is rare. Aren't flowers beautiful? They brighten the world with their color. There are some cross stitch designers design flowers beautifully.

Kooler Design Studio's Barbara Baatz designs incredibly breathtaking flowers. I enjoy her depiction of tulips and roses. Sometimes I think that one can actually smell them if one tries hard enough. I have been lucky enough to have stitched a rose from The Silver Lining. Although I can't remember it's name, I can tell you that it is a peach colored rosebud that is so detailed, it looks alive.

In a few days, I will start uploading pictures for your enjoyment. Hopefully, I will be able to add a few features and links on my blog. I do want this blog to grow and help me not only stitch better but become more computer literate.

Till next time....... take time to smell the roses........
