I am now a "blogger"thanks to my family for their support and in particular, to dear Patrick for his "more than patient help and advice." Love you all xoxo

Carol, your inspiration, friendship and encouragement helped to make this a reality!

Speaking of "firsts," this was my first finish that was not in a many years ago....I remember finishing it the night before the class as it "had to be completed" by class time. It was only 14 ct!!! Still, I had 4 children under the age of stitching could NOT be one of my priorities at the time. I was happy with the results just the same...and it hangs as a reminder of "my happy, busy as a bee times" that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world!

More to come.
Happy stitching and thank you for visiting :)
