"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

Stitchy bloggers love to share.
I find it very heart warming that so many stitchy bloggers are so willing and happy to share with others .
I understand that some don't , and some can't , but those that do and can make the blogging and stitching world such a nice place . Often , it is just a chance comment that sets the ball rolling .
Recently Melissa asked a question on her blog about what everyones' favourite colour of silk was . I replied that I have so far never stitched with silk , and Melissa very kindly sent me some to try .
Look at the lovely colours . I still haven't decided what I'm going to stitch , but I need to use at least one of them soon.
The other week , I sent a chart to Julie as I thought it might be useful for her show stitching . It was a free chart that came with a magazine , and not something I would have stitched , so no big deal. Julie then sent me some threads as a thank you . How nice is that .
I just love being part of such a caring and sharing community .
And , I finally have a bit of stitching to share.
This is a charity square I have been working on for a couple of weeks . Not much stitching time and even though it isn't massive , it has seemed to be a bit of a slog . I am pleased with how it has turned out though.
The chart was a freebie I found on line . It didn't say who the designer is , but the initials cgb are on the chart .
I had to change it though , as I couldn't tell the symbols apart and I also added the bottom heart as I wanted seven for my rainbow .
Hi , I am a happily married stay at home Mum of two terrors . I've been cross stitching for about 20 years , and love it . I also like reading and card making when I'm in the mood for it. Welcome to my stitchy /crafty / chatty blog
