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!

Weight Lost

Remember that I was trying to lose weight before I became pregnant? Well, today I went for one of my post-partum doc visits. I lost 32 lbs since delivering 9 days ago. For my European friends, that is 14.54 kilograms in 9 days. All toxins and water. I can wear one of my rings again. Hopefully in a few days I will be able to wear my wedding band too.

As for me, I am starting to get inspired to stitch again. I really didn't feel well while pregnant to stitch and knit. Right now I am on my way to being myself again.

I thank all my blog followers for sending me supportive emails all throughout my pregnancy. You are the best!!

Loving stitches to all....

It's fantastic Maria !!! Lost 15 kgs during 9 days ! WHAT a great deal !

I'm happy that you start again to stitch and knit.

I hope the little baby girl Juliette Isabelle is going well. Do you know that my best friend in France, since the first school when we were 5 is named Isabelle too !

I'm so proud for this and proud of you, congrats Maria again !
