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!

Shout out to everybody!!

Guess I have been quiet lately. Nothing much going on around here.

My penpal is expecting a grandchild. How exciting!! I wish her daughter the very best delivery.

Lately I have just been going to friends blogs, reading and commenting.

Hoping that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. They go by so fast, right??

Yes, I will post another giveway soon. I just haven't chosen what it will be.

Weekend stitches to all....

Website help needed, please

Do any of my readers know of any website designers that design for websites hosted by Go Daddy and use the Website Tonight website builder? Somehow, I think Go Daddy was not the best choice for the website. I can't make heads or tails out of it.

I am helping hubby look for someone who can create anything at this point for the shop's website. The blog is up, and we are happy with that, but the graphics used for the blog, is not able to be used on the website. It won't copy over.

It has gotten to the point that the cute graphics we purchased for the website, will probably be used for the blog.

Very frustrated over this situation because all of the people that I have contacted through Etsy do not design for that platform. Of course, I did not know that beforehand. The price was great and they had templates, but we don't like any of them because they are not crafty types.

Any graphic designers here? Website designers? Help!!!! Thank you!!

Teddy Bear Stitches and other musings

Yay!! I stitched a tiny teddy bear today! A tiny tiny step for some, but a huge step for me since the teddy bear is part of my Disney Neighborhood RR. Little by little I will make my imaginative neighborhood a reality.

After my "stitching victory", I turned to another fantastic Christmas idea born last week and started looking through my fabric stash. While I searched and searched, I came to the conclusion that I in my earlier stitching life I had been a fabric magnet. Lots of my fabric comes from monthly automatics from years ago while almost an equal amount comes from trading. Of course some of it comes from just plain old buying. LOL.

Ten years ago, I traded on a constant basis. Many trades were completed because my trading partner really wanted something I had. Since I did not need more charts, I would trade for fabric. That is how I managed to collect yards of fabric colors I did not need (then). Now, I am thinking I was psychic because they are exactly the colors I need now.

So far this day has been great! Stitched a little, stash fondled, blogged a bit. Most of all I relaxed and spent the day with my DD who sat on my lap while watching Elmo. She loves Elmo. I think I have a Sesame Street cross stitch book somewhere with Elmo in it. I think her favorite song is "Elmo's World".

Sara: You can start stalking your postie. Your envelope is on its way.

I'll have pictures of the small amount of stitching I have done posted today. Have to go and play "hide and seek".

Relaxing stitches.....
