I have always wanted to start a blog ever since I saw "Julie and Julia", but I keep putting if off.
So today is the day and I even think I have figured out what I want to blog about. I love cross stitch. I have been stitching since I was 12 years old sitting in the waiting rooms of hospitals. My Mom was always ill with a horrible heart condition where she produced to much cholesterol and her heart pretty much turned to stone. She spent a lot of time in the hospital and to pass the time I loved to stitch and make her bookmarks and pictures to cheer her up.
Even after she passed away, I kept up the stitching as I always find it calming and as we all know it, life is full of stress and drama, so stitching takes me away from that. A few years ago, in 2006 I was living in a travel trailer with my husband and 2 cats and we got hit by a tornado. Most of our stuff was destroyed and of course I lost all of my cross stitch stuff. I was heart broken and we never had the money to replace the material and threads that I needed to start again. So this year, I bought a few items off ebay and started using the 40% off coupons at Micheal's and now I have been able to start stitching again. Woot !!!
Well anyways, I have no clue what I am doing on this bog, so let me play around and see what I can do with it.
Hope everyone has a great day !!!
