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 number of the day: 40

40 is the number of pounds I have lost since delivering my daughter almost 2 months ago. Can you believe that time flies so fast??????

30 is the number of pounds I still need to lose.

Maybe this sounds sappy, but I am going to miss my doctors. Feeling sad that it is over. All those feelings bring about questions regarding my family's size. Somehow even though this pregnancy was horribly challenging, I question if she will be my last. Believe me, I remember the pain and the agony I went through with the delivery. I just wonder if I want one more child.

If you had asked me 3 and a 1/2 years ago, I would have said I was happy with my son. How things have changed. Now, at my age, I am contemplating having another. For now I have to get healthier and lose those 30 pounds.

The more I think about it, the more confused I get. If I were to give myself advice I would say, "Lose the 30 pounds, get healthier, enjoy your children and in 10 months see what happens."

Hopeful stitches to all .....

WOW...you go, my hats off to you!


Hurrah for you! I'm a number 40 too, but unfortunately I don't have a baby to show for it! lol Had to loose it as a diabetic, but now have another 60 lbs. to loose!
Congratulations on your daughter. She's a sweetie!
