1. What am I working on? Well, I am stitching the Concordia University Christmas ornament for Emerson. I am stitching it over one (with half cross) on 45 count!!! I needed to make it fit the little, square, silver charm frame. I am also stitching up an ornament for myself. =) Why not I say?!? It is Victoria's Sampler 'One More Stitch'.
3. Why do I write/create what I do? Well, I write this blog to be connected to YOU!! I love the friendships that I have made through this wonderful connection we share. It is wonderful to share my creations with people who understand. I cross stitch and sometimes quilt, because I just simply love to. It is so creative and fun. It gives me peace while I stitch or sew. I find true joy in my crafts. I love sharing and gifting also. I began stitching at 12 years old. The first piece I stitched was simple and on aida. It features a cat. And I gave it to my mother. It still hangs in its frame in her bedroom. God bless her.♥
4. How does my creating process work? Good question! When I see something I like, I stitch it! If I really love it, it moves up the line to first place, and I begin stitching it right away. Sometimes. ;) I often change colors in designs if something does not feel right to me. I also frequently ask my husband and children for their opinions if I am unsure. All five of us in this house honestly appreciate needlework.
I have invited two other blog friends to also join in on this Around The World Blog Hop.
Rosey at Ishkabibble is a new friend of mine. Rosey's favorite stitching subjects are video game and anime/manga subjects. If you take a look around her blog, you may spot Oreo and Peanut, her two sweet cats. =)
Maggee at Stitching Devotee is a familiar friend of mine. Maggee is a breast cancer survivor. She has been going through a lot these last few months, as her husband has recently suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and several surgeries. If you take a look around her blog, you will also spot many fabulous finds. Maggee also has a hobby of thrifting.
You can click on their names above to check out their blogs. They will be putting on their Around The World Blog Hop post next Monday. =)
Stitching and praying,
|I'll take them all!|
