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!

The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful

First the good: Doggie Modeling Sweater


These were the best pictures taken. He is definitely the best dressed dog on the block.

The even better

My cousin emailed me to tell me my aunt loved her LOVE, PEACE and a CURE pillow.
That is wonderful news to hear. I am very glad that she liked it.


The bad
Stitching with light grey floss on light blue fabric is blinding.
Yuppers, I can't stand it! I can barely see the floss going into the light blue evenweave.
But, I will persevere and continue stitching the castle on my Disney Neighborhood RR.

The beautiful
A picture is worth a thousand words......

The Castle, c. Disney 2000

The yellow lines were my guidelines for positioning the castle. I will take them off soon because I find them more of a hindrance than a help. Believe me it is hard to type that because it took a very long time to grid the fabric.

That is all for now. In a few hours I'll be back to post pics of WIPS and New Year starts.

Back to regularly programmed stitching.....
