Things you may (or may not) wish to know about me.

I was asked how long I have been cross stitching.  When I was ten years old, my counselor taught me how to do counted cross stitch to help me cope with the death of my mother.  I enjoyed cross stitching from day one.  I didn't switch to stamped cross stitch until I was around 20 years old.  Now I am 51 years old and still stitching away!
As a youngster I also wanted to learn to tat as my Grandmother on my Father's side did.  My Uncle modified a tatting shuttle for me to look like my Grandmothers but Grandmother really had no patience to teach me.
I had an Aunt that taught me how to crochet when I was eleven.  She was a very patient, loving teacher which is most likely why I love crochet so much still today.  I have picked up other hobbies along the way to keep my hands and my mind busy.
If you have any other questions you are curious about, please ask.  I will answer them in another post!  God bless and huggles!
