Thanks so much everyone for viewing and supporting my blogs. I discovered, thanks to help from some of you, that I do have followers after all, and I have gained a few more in the process. I just couldn't see them! Some days they show up and others they are nowhere to be found. :o(
Now to the Giveaway... I have the hardest time just having two winners, but I guess it's better than just one! Having said that, the winners are: Catskill Quilter and Tracey.
Ladies contact me and I will get these out to you this week.
That was so fun, and now I have 111 followers on this blog, so guess what!!!!???? I have to have another giveaway! This time I think I will give away a pattern or two, with some extras. Will post it just as soon as I decide which patterns. Anyone have any special requests?
I LOVE STITCHING!
I have turned from a simple stasher to a purveyor of cross stitch supplies. I just love needlework! It came from my grandmother, to whom I will always owe my many hours of stitching pleasure. I remember doing my first cross stitch pattern and hated how time consuming it was. Then I found a pattern I loved. I had to stitch it, loved the results, and there was no holding me back after that. I had to buy every pattern I loved and now have in my stash literally hundreds of patterns. I am a designer as well, but it is hard to get mine done as I want to do so many others. There are so many talented people out there.
I love holding the patterns and floss and fabric, as well as all the embellishments. I have enough to have a store of my own and have decided I have to work on a retail site. I am now working on setting up my own business so others can enjoy stitching as well at a little more affordable price, with affordable shipping. Let's face it...This is not an inexpensive hobby! Although there is much available out there I buy what I love, mostly samplers, but there are so many cute things I figure I can buy it for others. If you are looking for something that maybe I can help you with please email me. I'll do what I can.
I am setting up a shopping cart, but even though I have done several shopping carts for past jobs, every cart is so different, and I am having a difficult time figuring this one out.
In the meantime, I have tried a little with my other blog, www.memoriesgardendesigns.blogspot.com.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
What do you think about a community blog to help us find those hard-to-find and out-of-print charts?
Oftentimes one of us has a chart that someone is desperately looking for or we know where it can be found. For instance, several months ago I went to Shepherd's Bush and found 9 (nine) Blackbird Designs, Quaker Garden charts at regular price, and they were going for a fortune on ebay.
It could be helpful to have a blog set up to help others find what they are looking for. Let's face it...We are all faced with that problem from time-to-time.
There is probably a site out there already, (I am always a day late!) but I am going to pursue this.
Now I just need a catchy name for it... Any suggestions?
Well enough for now. I will post more later on my neat finds. It's not all just about cross stitch you know! LOL
