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!

Sad Day For Me

This morning I found out that my grandaunt passed away during the night. She fought a brave battle against breast cancer twice. The first she won for decades, the second time around the cancer was vengeful and although my grandaunt was very brave, her body could not withstand the beligerant unrelenting aggression of the breast cancer.

At the end, the cancer could not conquer her mind. She was brave and positive till the end. May she rest in peace.

I am going to miss her.

Silent stitches....

Sorry to hear about your loss. Cancer took my Grandmother a few years ago basically in the same manner. Had it, beat it and it came back bit different and lot worse. It was nice to be able to visit with her before she passed.
