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!

Our Trip to Jersey. A Pictorial

Usually, it takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes max from our place to Jersey. Half way into the trip, I remembered I had my camera and started taking pictures. I thought you would like to see them since they offer a different perspective on NYC.

Here we go:

going up 57th Street to 9th Avenue

Still going up to 9th Avenue

We're on 9th Avenue

One of my favorite pics on 9th Ave. Love the pig statuette and the store next to it.

Waiting at the Lincoln Tunnel

Still waiting at the Lincoln Tunnel, we saw the blimp overhead the church steeple. It came and left. Still waiting at the Lincoln Tunnel, the blimp came back. I had time to adjust the camera to take picture.

Still waiting at the Lincoln Tunnel, I was able to take the picture of the blimp making it's second turn back.

Finally, in Jersey..... as we were driving, I managed to take a picture of NYC skyline.

Three three hours and 15 minutes later, (yes, we were VERY late), our sweet princess was in a great mood..... priceless... Had to take this picture of her and share it. I think she is very pretty, but I am her mom. She has the fine features, the curly hair and the big eyes. I think she could model baby things. Definitely photogenic. What do you think?

Till next time

Happy stitches.....
