Opening day

Well, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet and start a blog.  Not sure how often I'll post and of course, I'm assuming I can find my way back...but it's a start. My name is Michele and I am in my late 40's. I am married(Mike), work full time and have two teen-age sons Joe and Matt. Tonight is parent teacher conferences and I'm excited to meet their teachers.  They are both doing very well in school ( Joe's a junior and Matt's a freshman) and I am so proud of them, as is their dad, Mike. 

Cross stitch is my passion and I always find time to work on it.  I belong to a great group, World of Charity Stitching, and hope to finish the polar bear fishing pattern today.  This project is for an "animal baby" quilt. World of Charity Stitching, WOCS for short, is a group stitchers and sewers that make quilt for a variety of charities.   We cross stitch small projects that are incorporated into quilts, walker bags, cinch sack, tissue covers, you name it, it can be made by the incredible members that do the sewing. 

I think I'm being a little ambitious to finish this today as I have to finish stitching the hat, add another gull, finish the detail on the snowmounds and then the backstitching.  Yeah, probably not going to finish today.  Next on the agenda is to finish a Christmas stocking  and get a few birthday cards and special requests completed.  I'm itching to get back to the large Artecy project I started earlier this year. And of course, there's so many other projects to stitch.

signing off for now, hopefully I'll figure out how to come back...
