Imagine my surprise! On opening up my Blogger Dashboard the other day and paying a visit to Serendipitous Stitching, hosted by Jo who can't think of a clever nickname, and seeing my blog name in her alphabetical blog call! Thank you so much for the shout out, Jo!
As the lovely Jo has encouraged her readers to visit my blog, I thought it only right and proper to introduce myself to any new readers today!
I've been a cross stitch fan for many years, but more recently after joining a local handicraft group I became hooked on embroidery, and that was when my "Cocoa Sampler" found its way into the dreaded store cupboard! However earlier this year when I aired the Sampler here I was inspired by some of the kind comments I received to start working on it again!
I finished the "house" square in the middle of the picture, by deciding to stitch 10 stitches a day - which meant if I picked it up to stitch ten I would generally stitch more than that!

You can see a larger cross stitch project posted here, and a more recent update about my Crewel Work and some smaller cross stitch projects here.
Having finished the Crewel Work picture I will now be returning to my "Cocoa Sampler" stitchwork (and other recent projects, of course!).
I thank you for taking the time to visit me today, and hope you've found a little to interest you!
Do visit again, some time soon! I have a few posts lined up ... I just need to pretty them up a little!
