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!

Wow!! Hi!!

Wow! A few changes since I last used blogger.com.  I barely recognized my page.  I know, that is pretty bad. But, here I am again....with a few changes of my own.

First, I am stitching again, which is a change of pace due to the fact I now wear glasses.  I didn't know if I needed a cardiologist after the shock of just the price of the lenses.  To tell you the truth,  I thought of the monocle look for a couple of seconds...but of course, both eyes being the control freaks they are need different prescriptions.  Okay, okay, I got two lenses...Just when I got over the price of the lenses, I got hit with the price of the frames.  Let's just say.....very expensive, but eyesight is priceless.  So now I am at the stage where I can't see without my eyeglasses and I can't see well with them on either.  Weird.  (Yes, I got them insured...).

Somewhere within the trifocal range, I can stitch, which is a great relief as it helps to calm my fears over my eyesight.  There was a time where I didn't know if I was actually seeing or feeling my way through the stitching which kept me away from my favorite hobby. Which brings me to my stitching project, Provence Sampler, by the late cross stitcher designer, MLI. It was a UFO since 2007. I know that because I stitched that date on top thinking I would finish it that year...oops.....

My third change...my nails.  I went to get silk extensions put on because those little nails needed some drastic help.  I know that I may not keep them for long.  I know the buffing was not the smartest move, but I really like how they look and maybe this time I will keep up and then stat the nail hardening therapy so I can have my own great looking nails.

Oh, I guess the fourth change is that I am blogging again and hope to continue.  

Of course, somethings stay the same, the camera work....well, what can I say.... Happy Labor Day!!!

Stitch well....
