Hello all! I'm a retired office worker and am enjoying having enough time to get back to cross-stitching! Since Christmas I've completed two Christmas stockings and two small samplers (not to mention a crocheting a couple of baby blankets). I have a love/hate relationship with complex patterns. I sometimes think I pull out more stitches than I put in, especially when I'm first starting a design! What makes life wonderful is the lovely stand my father-in-law built that allows me to use both hands to stitch. I work the needle in my left hand for the top and my right hand for the bottom. The stand also holds my pattern so it's easy to see!
I love to talk about my hobby (addiction), so I look forward to getting to know all of you!
