Welcome To My Corner Of The Cross Stitching World!

I love cross stitch, chocolate, tea, exercise and my heating pad under a pile of blankets. I am a little ADD and extremely busy with life so don't always post as I should. I usually only update with new stitching accomplishments but, may try to blog a little more in the near future. HOWEVER, if you are here visiting me, I hope I can make you smile and bring joy to your life even for a brief second.

After all, isn't life a bunch of brief seconds running after each other to weave the story of our life?

Not off to a good start!

Wow, talk about big plans for a blog and only posting once! The story of my busy life.
Got engaged on Christmas Day. Shawn got on one knee and asked me in front of my 2 girls. We cried and laughed. The ring is beautiful. (see pic) We have not set a date yet.

Start esthetician school Jan.21 for 13 weeks in Columbia, SC. A 1 1/2 hour drive one way. Plan on finding someone to stay with a few nights during the week. Excited about going to school but, still wish I was financially able to just stay home designing stitching patterns and stitching all my projects that I have purchased along the years.

I am enjoying my very first RR and am working on the second of 10 parts to the project. Should have taken picture of first but, passed it along to Amy of Down Sunshine Lane (my favorite place to stash shop). Accidentally stitched hers first but am almost finished with the one I should have started with. I am also currently working on a beautiful project of scissors that I will post at some point. Oh well, time for bed!!

Can't wait to see the finished Scissors piece! BTW, the Mill Hill Treasures should be here in a couple of days, forgot to tell you yesterday. Love the pic with you on the phone. I think I'll sew up a little bag to attach to your mag eyes so you can just turn it on and not have to stop stitching while you talk. That or just glue it to the side of your head.... ;-) LOL

See you soon!
Love & hugs to you!
