A place to show what's going on in my stitching life
Thursday, March 11, 2010
I'm sorry it's been a while since I updated. I took this picture last weekend and am just now getting around to updating my blog. I have a determination to finish Altengamme but I think it will take a while, however the end IS in sight. I've finished the motif that was shown partially completed in the last photo, and also the very small one under the diamond. I've now moved over to the right to start on the next large one you can see partially done. I've actually worked quite a bit more on that since the photo was taken. I will take another photo at the weekend but for now this is it!
I'm originally from England and my husband and I now live in Arkansas, we've been here in the USA since 1975, and in Arkansas since December 2000. I became an American citizen on June 9, 2008. I learned to do needlework as a young girl and have never lost interest. I always have something on the go; cross stitch, Hardanger, knitting, crochet, something to do with a needle!
I'm a mother to two grown sons, one living in the USA and the other in London, England. I'm also Nana to two girls.
I work full-time at our local community college as an Administrative Assistant and I'm a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), an organization I've been associated with for over 30 years.
