Join the party!

Starting March 2nd is the ultimate blog party! Please come and join us. There will be lots of fun and prizes. For more info just go to 5 minutes for mom and find out all about it! You can meet new friends, discover new blogs you may not have read and maybe even a new friend or two.
A little about me. I have been married nearly 27 years to a wonderful man. We never had any children but do have a niece we think of as a daughter. And we are owned by a very rotten min pin named Katie. That's a miniature pinscher thank you for asking! My hubby and I both love cross stitching very much. It's funny because I started this blog JUST to show our cross stitch but it has become so much more! And I have met some wonderful people here. i am pleased to meet you too! now come on, pull up a chair and let's get to know each other!

Very nice to meet you too, Michelle.

I don't do well with needle work, but admire it. I have seen some incredible pieces.

Have a wonderful Friday.

Oh my. I'm still laughing. I've been reading WAY too many blogs and my eyes are blurry. I read "cross stitching" and thought it said "cross stinking"!!!!

Come visit my blog too. I'm alot more coherent in person.

Tiff said...

You have some beautiful pieces! I'm impressed! Nice to meet you! Katie is too cute!!

Christy said...

So glad I found your blog. I love to cross stitch as well but I usually start and don't finish them. Maybe you can inspire me to finish them.

Jenn (letting my whimsies free) said...

Wow, how cool that you both love cross stitching! Is that something you introduced him to or did he always like that? How does a guy get into cross-stitching? Very Cool though that you both enjoy doing that together. Thanks for having me!

Barbara H. said...

It's nice to meet you! I used to do a lot of cross stitch -- unfortunately (in one sense) most of it was given as gifts, so I don't have much on hand. Haven't done it in ages -- wonder if I could still see to do it?

devildogwife said...

That picture with Katie in the blankets is too precious. I love it. My dog loves to take over blankets and pillows as well.

Trista said...

Welcome to the party!!!! Katie is a cutie!

jdoriot said...

I haven't cross-stitched in ages! My dad stitched a very beautiful Hummel figurine...I was so jealous because the back of his work was perfect and my backs were always a huge mess! lol!! I think it's wonderful that you and your husband enjoy this hobby...neat!

Tonya said...

DK said...

Hi Michelle,
Good to meet you! I saw "Ozark" in your title and had to stop by. I'm in SW MO, but I'm afraid I don't have time at the moment to craft! Love your blog; you have a terrific family. My hubby and I don't have kids either, and we are "owned" by 2 little dogs. Drop by if you get a chance. I think I'm #538 on the list! Yeah, I got a very late start, but I'm trying to catch up!
Blessings,
DK

Nice to meet you Michelle!

I have one cross stich that I have been working on since 1993 and I still pick it up when I'm not doing anything else. As you can tell, that is INFREQUENT! Still, I like it. Its neat that your hubby's into it too!
Also . . .I know my aunt, who never had children of her own has been a mentor and mother figure in my life. Most of my world view comes from here . . so I applaude your interest in your niece. It affected my life, BIG TIME.
Happy PARTY!

Nise' said...
