A Little About Me
Hi, I’m Christine! I’m mom to three children, one of whom recently graduated high school and has moved out to start down the path of adulthood. The other two are in their teenage years and so far have not driven me crazy. Knock. On. Wood. I’m married to an amazing man, who is my bestest friend in the world and is often referred to as “Mister” on these pages. We are a May-December couple, and are living life to the fullest. Mister is retired, and so we are able to spend all of our days together. We are so well-matched that being around each other 24/7/365 does not drive us crazy, rather, there is nowhere else we would rather be. How blessed is that?! Mister is also pretty handy at all things needing some handy-work. He willingly provides a positive critical eye over my projects when asked (and sometimes when not asked). That way if they look like crap I can uncrapify them!
What Is This Website All About?
This is where I blog about all my sewing & stitching projects!
In May of 2012 I decided I wanted to make my daughter a graduation quilt. I wanted it to have squares with embroidered inspirational quotes. Since I can’t do anything without learning ALL about it, I figured I would make a test quilt to make sure I knew what I was doing. And that began my love affair with all the pretty fabrics and threads.
I promptly left the graduation quilt idea in the dust while I started making other quilts. Which led to making tote-bags, placemats, notebook covers, table runners, purses, and even a bag for my netbook. I did manage to complete the graduation quilt, with about a week or so to spare!
Recently I’ve taken up cross stitching. A hobby I never saw myself having an affinity towards. Then I realized there were some fantastic modern cross stitching patterns out there, and I was hooked! Through an estate sale I managed to amass enough embroidery floss and cross stitching aida fabric to ensure I will be cross stitching well into my 90’s. With enough left over to be passed down to my children and grandchildren.
I can’t seem to stop wanting to try a new quilting pattern, stitching pattern, and/or sewing pattern. Usually all at the same time. I’d describe myself a compulsive project starter, with at least 5 -10 projects in various stages of completion. That’s what this website is about… my wanting to Stitch ALL The Things and share that with everyone else.
Thank you so much for stopping by my website and wanting to get to know a little more about me!
