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!

2009 Has Arrived!!

Hoping that everyone has made it safely into 2009. It was a pretty quiet evening for me for it was brutally cold. Still, I managed to see fireworks and feel the wonderful love of family.

As I reflect on 2008, I see that I blogged, stitched, crocheted and knitted more. My wish is that I continue this trend in 2009.

Keeping a stitching budget is in my 2009 plans as I have tons of stash. Being a bit more disciplined will ensure that I only buy items that I really truly desire and will someday stitch. There are many stitchers on the net that have been challenging themselves to stitch from their stash and only purchase items for those projects when needed. Sometimes I will do that, other times I will allow myself to go crazy and shop. After all is said and done things will balance out. They always do.

A better can do outlook and positive thinking along with the doing will definitely make 2009 my best crafting year yet! I am looking forward to all the blessings of 2009. With 2008 behind me I venture forth to fulfilling my stitching wishes. I will continue to blog about my crafting throughout the year. Making this blog an exclusive crafting journal where I can share my stitching experiences with every stitcher who comes.

On the sides of the blog I will add lists of WIPS, finishes and other blog sites. Hopefully, my blog will also appear on other stitchers blog lists. More pics of my stitching and doggie are promised for 2009.

Life is good! Needles up!!!!!

Hi
I have only just found your blog but I loved reading through it. I also look forward to seeing what you create in 2009. I must get on with stitching from my stash too. Hubby says I can't have any more stuff until I use up what I have.
Gee men can be boring at times LOL
