I am also new to this group and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Melanie and I am 53 years old and live in the North of England.
I have been stitching, sewing and knitting for as long as I can remember and in my adult life have acquired an enormous amount of stash and goodies that will " come in useful" one day. I am lucky to have my own workroom where I can spend hours doing machine embroidery and sewing but will spend my evenings doing my cross stitch downstairs with DH in front of the television. I work during the week but have just reduced to 4 days, of my own choosing so I can now spend an extra day stitching!
I have been reading this blog for some time and am so inspired by the work that is completed and the kindness shared with one another. I love to create something that will bring joy to someone else and this looks like the place for it to be appreciated, you all seem to have such fun.
Thank you for letting me be a member and I look forward to joining in with you very soon.
I will put a wish list on my blog when I update at weekend, however I love all Lizzie Kate, Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks charts. I too enjoy making ornaments all the year round and little pillows. I love anything winter and Christmas related and have to work hard at stitching other things so this years plan is to make small's that are suitable for display at other times in the year. I love ribbon, cotton lace, charms, beads and cotton fabric, I have an enormous stash of FQ's all organised into pretty colours and enough threads to last a lifetime.
I look forward to getting to know you all and creating some tokens of joy to share with you.
