in the beginning..

happy groundhog's day!!..

well i finally joined the world of bloggers.. not that i plan on doing that much.. but.. for me it'll like a journal of my stitching.. and hopefully.. keep me on track of what i'm working on.. the progress on each.. and a record of what i've finished.... i'm an avid stitcher.. and that includes.. cross stitch.. quilting.. embroidery.. crazyquilting.. crocheting.. tatting.. beading.. etc .. etc.. i like to do other crafting too.. so i'm sure once in a while that will in here as well..

i'm hoping to stretch my skills this year.. in cross stitching.. i want to learn Hardanger.. and to do some more complex patterns with specialty stitches and threads... and lots of beading..

in quilting... this year.. my plans are to learn to paper piece curves.. and to learn to applique.. and.. since my wonderful husband bought me a fantastic new sewing machine for Christmas.. i want to learn to actually quilt with my machine..
