"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
I completely finished the dress and stitched a bit on the right wing last night! I'm very excited about this, lol. I found a Mirabilia stitcher's board and I think I might join today because these women are complete inspirations to me! I'm not a speed stitcher, but I would like to take on a large design someday. Maybe a mermaid or something?
Our 4th was nice. Except for the fire and brimstone storm we had to deal with. My husband was out cooking steaks and chicken at his parents house while thunder, lightening and torrential rains hailed down on him. Yeah, he takes his cooking out pretty seriously.
Hopefully, I'll get more stitching done today and all this week. I want to pick out a beach project to take on vacay next week too. They have two cross stitch/needlework shops there (one is right on the boardwalk) that I LOVE to spend time and money in! I can't wait to go.
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.
