A Lovely Surprise

     This is the very first time I've received a surprise and I'm so happy.  What a nice ornament.  Thank you so much Jacquie.  So thoughtful and kind of you.  Great job as well.  Merry Christmas.

A big thank you to Jacquie

Thank you Jacquie,
Your RAK came in the mail today it is such an unexpected surprise
Your sweet little ornament is so adorable and I just love the stitching, I happen to collect Snowmen so you can imagine how thrilled I was to get it.

I love the stitching detail on the carrot nose, the little stars and his sweet smile
Even the fabric on the back makes me smile

Thank you again Jacquie this was so sweet of you to think of me.

Greetings from a New Member

Thank you for letting me join your blog group! My name is Sharon and I'm really excited about getting acquainted and participating in the RAKs which I have been interested in doing for a long time. I've been away from the online stitching community for several years but am looking forward to easing back in as my circumstances have once again taken a turn. (Funny how life never seems to go the way we think it will or should.) I'm owned by a cat, six dogs and four aquariums of fish. I live in a semi-rural community on the edge of Oklahoma City and commute to work near downtown OKC. I enjoy stitching, cross stitch designing and collecting stitchy stuff, especially embroidery scissors, cross stitch charts, fabric and fibers. My blog can be found here (xstitchhappy.net) - I hope you will stop by and look around and please leave a comment so I can visit you in return.

 Hi All,
Thank you so much for including me in this blog! My name is Stephanie and my personal blog is bluestarstitcher.com I have been stitching over 24 years now (wow that seems like a long time but its gone by so quick!) Stitching is my passion, and I stitch a pretty wide variety of designers/themes. I also dabble in quilting, painting/drawing, paper cutting, gardening, yoga/running/hiking (not well and not fast but that's not what counts). I am a mom of three, with three dogs 1 bird and 1 bunny, so our house stays pretty busy! I do enjoy blogging though, and getting a peek into other stitcher's lives around the world, and getting to enjoy everyone else's stitching. Above is one of my more recent finishes, and below is a photo of me and my girls.

Hello From A New Member

Hi everyone I am Kimberly I live in Upstate NY. I am the mother of 7 grown children and 15 grandchildren biologically and 9 step grands. I am furmom to many kitty's!I have been cross stitching since 1994 I am self taught I picked up a stamped kit in Micheal's one day and did it and loved it. I progressed to a large crib quilted blanket for my daughter that was on the way I was on complete bed rest for the last 4 months of my pregnancy she was determined to come into the world early and I was extremely bored so I learned something new. I later progressed and bought a counted cross stitch kit I taught myself and loved it so much I later grew my interests and bought many more kits and patterns. Life took a u turn on us we escaped a very abusive marriage and the children and I escaped with a few suitcases and a few boxes of things many of which the bus company lost and never compensated us for. I was saddened I lost all my stitchy things, and all my clothes but I was also happy we all were safe and healthy and still had our lives. I got divorced in 2005 after moving back to NY from FL in 2002 I was finally free and I went to college and got a dual law degree both associates in Criminal Law and Paralegal. I lost total interest in my stitching after losing it all but God sent an angel in my life I met a wonderful man i 2009 we got very close and he saw a picture I had in my email of one of my projects he asked you did this I said yes he said you have talent I said I do? I said thank you he said make me something I said I have nothing left. We went the following day and we picked out a couple of kits from the Gold Collection one was a Behjing Tiger I think that's the exact name but I stitched it for him and I got my confidence back and there is no stopping me now!!! I found online Yahoo Groups  and joined them and found many friendships and found even more confidence, I even started my own Yahoo Group Sisters_Stitching_Sharing_Life its been going strong for a few years now our group is very close and we have a tight bond. I have been growing my stash lately thanks to enablers in my group and from the ladies on the 123MB. I will be making a wishlist on my blog within the next week or so I have a wishlist on the 123 MB kimanncurry@yahoo.com is the name to access it. I love scissor fobs, needle books, needle minders, q snap covers, anything anyone would like to make me! I appreciate anything that comes from the heart and I will make it my point to send to someone also! Thank you so much for having me and I am sorry for rambling I just wanted you all to know a little about me!!! My blog address is grannystitches2010.blogspot.com
