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!

October Already?

Well, that is the reality. October is here and the Winter holidays are 2 months away. I think that this is the time that I must set goals.

My October goals:
  1. Stitch 2 Breast Cancer smalls for 2 of my family members who live with breast cancer.
  2. Stitch a Christmas piece for my family.
  3. Continue working on my UFO now WIP: "The Salute".
  4. Continue working on my 2nd WIP: Christmas Mickey Mouse Ornament.

Today I went to my LNS and helped the economy along. Here is a list of what I purchased:

  • 2 Just Cross Stitch 2008 Ornaments Magazine
  • Peace Love and a Cure - Lizzie Kate
  • Pinwheel - Just Nan - In the Tin Limited Additions 2008
  • Folding Cross Needlebook - Indigo Rose
  • Silken Roses Fob - The Sweetheart Tree Teenie Weenie #87
  • One 9"x6" piece of Jobelan Lambswool 28ct
  • 3 packs of Mill Hill beads

Where's the picture? My camera is not working. I purchased batteries, tried to make it work and nothing, nada, zilch, zippo, goose egg, zero, naaaaaa...... I am so upset because it is not an old camera. It is possibly 2 years old, max. That means that we will have to buy another one and Kodak is not in the picture. I will probably purchase a Canon.

Well, I have to go stitch if I am going to meet some of my October goals.

October is Breast Awareness month in the United States. Please remember that Breast Cancer is a non-discriminatory disease...... everyone has breasts....... take care of them!

Stitching the night away........

I like the way you are helping your economy...I think all the crafters around the world should do it on a regular basis...it will help boost the world economy that way.
