A little history of me and stitching.
My mother taught me how to cross stitch and embroider at a very young age. She would buy me little kits to work from and I actually finished a lot of projects as a young girl and teenager. I took a textiles class in high school and won the award for best student. I think the teacher loved my enthusiasm and genuine love to work with my hands. Then I went off to university and stopped stitching for a long time. Very sad, I know. I only took up my stitching a couple years ago because I realized how much I missed it. It's very cathartic for me to stitch and create little pieces.
I'm not going to ramble on too much longer. I may post pictures of my pieces (there are not many, most I gave away) and hopefully I will get encouragement from all the amazing ladies out there that have so much expertise and creativity to help me with my WIP's (some of which have been put aside for ten years!).
