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!

Great Inspiring Day!!!!

Today was one of those days that are worth reliving!! I went to see my cousin's North American movie premiere and it was very exciting and wonderful to see him in his film element. I am so proud of him. Even my pictures of me with him came out great and I don't like taking pictures.

I also got alot of cross stitching done this morning. Finally, the best Christmas Ornament for my personal holiday exchange popped out at me from one of my many hard-cover cross stitch books and I was able to get at least 1/3 of it done. Whew..... now I just have to think of how to "finish" the ornament.

My hair looked great today! I know it is a bit vain, but I have never been so happy to have gotten a haircut. Last week, something came over me and I went to get my haircut. She did a great job. Today, I was thrilled that I did actually go because my usual m.o. is to get a trim every 6 months. YIPPEEE..... my hair looked great in the pictures. Like I said, it is very vain, but if you knew me on a personal basis, I have let myself go. No manicures, no haircuts, no eyebrow waxings....... so it is a real treat for me to actually go. Yup, i need to go more often because it is a great pick me up and it helps my self confidence a great deal. Need to spend more time and money on me instead of everyone else.

But the best thing today was that I gave my cousin our grandaunt's gift. He will hand deliver it to her in two weeks. That was the best thing that could have ever happened this weekend. I am at peace. With the pillow went a card where I wrote her a few heartfelt words.

If I could bottle all of the great feelings that are going through me I would. I didn't think I would be able to make it today because of my fall yesterday, but it turned out to be a wonderful day in New York City. Reminds me of one of the songs in the movie "You've Got Mail".

I love New York City. It has so much to offer and I have not embibed of its sweetness. Today, I enjoyed its offerings and I was inspired to do and be so much more.

Wishing all of us happy and wonderful stitches........
