It’s a new day and I’m feeling good. Now that I’ve taken the plunge I realize that to blog I have to write stuff and it has to readable. First off I would like to thank my Stitchy Sister Kirstin for the vote of confidence and link on her blog. Also to my other two followers also Stitchy Sisters Irene and Rose hang in here with me, hopefully it will get better. I was reading a gentleman’s stitching blog a little bit ago and it was funny that he mentioned “Man Law” and how it prohibits him from admitting he’s a stitcher and stitching in public, well I sometimes get a similar feeling. Being a woman of color and enjoying cross stitch seems rare and sometimes completely unheard of, maybe it’s a "Black Law" and I didn’t get the email. Anyway, I love to stitch and as long as the fingers and eyes hold out I will be doing just that. When I get a little more experienced here I will show you pictures of my cross stitch stash, if I live to be 187 years old I just may be able to stitch everything in it if I stop adding to it today. I have unopened kits I’ve purchased, books, booklets, leaflets, magazines, calendars, chartpacks and pages and pages of freebie charts downloaded from various sites on the internet (that magical place) that I want to stitch someday. I have been giving the idea of stitching more than one project at a time some serious thought and have tried to do that, normally I am a one project girl but there are just so many charts and so little time. In cross stitch there are a lot of abbreviations, kinda like the way people text on their smart phones and it takes a really smart person to understand what the message is, so you will see some of these abbreviations from time to time, I will let you try to figure them out before I tell you what they mean. One of my current project is considered for me anyway a BAP, it is the Green goddess designed by Joan Elliott the other is actually several small projects that will be combined they are from the Directory of Counted Cross Stitch Patterns and the designer is Nickole214. Well I am off to make some of those wonderful little xxs.
