Things I am working on

Right now I am working on a cross stitch picture of my grandson.  I also have just finished a Christmas stocking for my other grandson.  Down over the years, I have made and created so many things for my children and grandschildren.  Sweaters, wedding veils, crosstitch pictures, quilts.  I am also working on getting quilts completed for my granchildren and also making some for ones that have not been born yet.  I want both my children to have something to hand down to their children. Follow the family tradition of making things by hand to pass down.  Let my stitches hold future generations.  I will be posting pictures of some of my completed items and things that I am working on in the very near future.

My second post

This is my second post and I am still figuring out all the ins and outs.  I have been a stitcher for many years.  I know that in working with my grandmother she would always remind me to only have good thoughts while making a quilt, sweater, whatever I was working on.  She would say "Be careful, have only good thoughts.  Let them feel your love.  Let them feel your holds handing them."  I have always tried to remember that. 

I also know that at times in my life my stitching has pulled me back from a dark place.  I would let watching the fabric, yarn, floss whatever take away the sadness.  Much like watching a river flow.  Just let it carry it away and let the stitches bring the world back together.  Stronger than before.

In the future I will be posting pictures of some of the projects I have completed some I have designed myself.  Some I have made from patterns from other talented designers.
