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!

Please help me grow... Blog Challenge

One of my blogging goals and hopes for this year 2011 is not only to blog more (of course), but to grow its readership community.

I enjoy blog reading and am so inspired by the creativity I see everyday in them. If you are also looking to expand your blog readership, I would love to trade blog links with you. Whether it is a quilting, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, tatting, weaving, patchwork, written in Spanish, English, French, Italian, Russian or any combination thereof, I would be glad to trade links and add yours on my blogroll on my side bar.

When I reach 100 readers and at every additional 50 reader mark, I will have a giveaway. My blog challenge for 2011 is to reach 500 readers.

Please leave me a comment on this entry with your blog address. Together we can help each other grow and meet lots of other bloggers with the similar interests.

Thanks for your support. I appreciate every single friend who reads my blog. Your comments make me very happy!!

Growing stitches to all ....

Love this idea! I can't remember how I found your blog originally, but it's usually through other crafty blogs. Networking is a great way to find new blogs to read!

My blog is over at http://ambitiousstitches.blogspot.com -- I look forward to getting to know many more bloggers! =)

WOW!! I am truly touched by everyone's positive comments.

They are so uplifting and special to my heart. I think that what touches me the most is that we are gathering not for a giveaway, but to learn more about each other and to make friends. To see what other stitchers around the world are creating and feeling closer.

I think I have entered everyone's blog on my blogroll. I will check again. If you don't see yourself there, by tomorrow, let me know because your blog is important to me.

Let's grow together,

I was referred to your blog by Joyce. I am now a follower. I don't have a blog yet....at least not one that I post to. I haven't posted on one for over two years. But eventually I plan on starting another one, if things ever slow down for me. I look forward to seeing some of your cross stitching or any other craft that you may do.

Cross Stitch Queen said...


Welcome! When you start your own blog, let me know. You have friends here!

Glad to see you and hope that we give you a happy creative break that helps brighten your day!

Happy smiles!
