I am an “old” stitcher and a new blogger. My grandma taught me to cross stitch when I was 7 and I’ve had a project (or many!) going since then. While I appreciate (and would like to try) all needle arts at the moment, I mostly cross stitch and I really enjoy learning specialty stitches for counted embroidery. A lifetime ago I studied French and art history but now I fit my stitching around a busy life raising 5 young kids with my wonderful husband. Thank you for spending some time at my blog!
