I've been stitching for 25 years now (I'm 41 before you ask). My mother gave me my first kit - an old Anchor tapestry kit of squirrels which was an unwanted gift. I thought I would be bored...
I quickly moved on to larger and larger tapestries and from there it was a small jump to cross stitch. I dabble very occasionally in crochet and knitting but there's nothing like those little Xs for me! Apart from a break when I had my boys, now aged 5 and 4, I've been stitching ever since.
But I've always been alone. I've had friends who have dabbled a bit in stitching (how can you dabble and not get hooked?!) but have never known any serious stitchers. Until a few weeks ago when I idly searched for cross stitch blogs, never realising how many stitching sisters and brothers there are out there!
So, I'm here to share my projects with you. I sincerely hope you will welcome me into your stitching world. I feel like I have lots to catch up on!
Here's a picture of my oldest UFO: Holiday Village by Dimensions. Do you think I will be able to finish it by Christmas?
And here's my most recent finish, from Cross Stitcher magazine:
Until next time
