Flashback Friday

 We've moved several times in the last 4 years, after living in the same house for 35 years. We are finally settled into a permanent home, and while going through a packed-up box of cross stitch items, I came across a gem I stitched sometime in the mid-'80s.

It is a Dimensions kit, #3527 "Americana Still Life- Charles Wysocki, from 1982

I hadn't realized I had done anything as detailed back in the day, so it was exciting to see it.

 Finally, I am getting a blog set up. I have been wanting to do this for the longest time. I love doing my crafts, I enjoy looking at other craft and stitching blogs, and I thought it would be awesome to throw my hat in the ring. It will enable me to look back at when I started things, chart my struggles and be a basic journal about my crafting. I also hope to start an Etsy shop with a wide variety of items. I hope you enjoy following along. I may get chatty at times, but some of my favorite blogs are like that- friendly, chatty, like having a good friend and keeping up with them.

Right now my focus has been cross stitch, but I also love to crochet, sew, quilt, and knit- all the things. Probably will have some cooking thrown in for good measure.
