"Oh heaven preserve us from a wife with fancy work run wild. With hands that never do aught else for husband or for child. Our clothes are rent, our bills unpaid, our house is in disorder, and all because my lady wife has taken to embroider." -Anon
OK, I have finished the treat bag on the Fairy and I think she's pretty happy about it. I'm trying to not be such a perfectionist about it all, but neat and tidy stitches are part of what I love about cross stitching anyways and I just won't be getting over it anytime soon. :)
My sis and her family are at the beach with my mom this week. Jealous as I am, I know I'll soon follow and I'm looking foward to the day when my biggest problem is that there is sand in the shower. What's not to like about the beach I ask you? My favorite and fondest memories are of childhood vacations with family, doing all of our routine beach activities and eating at fun places and just being together. Just being, together. See how that little comma makes all the dif? Have fun family! Enjoy the beauty of the ocean and be aware of the salt air, the heat, the sunshine, and the sounds of it all.
I've been married 29 years, have one 19 year old son and one little doggie. I've been stitching for about 26 years and it's my favorite hobby. I also sew, quilt, scrapbook, crochet, and do lots of generally crafty things. You'll find me making Halloween things all year round, as it's my favorite holiday! Thanks for looking at my blog.
