Howdy, folks!  Long time, no post.  Truely sorry about that- I've missed you guys very much.  I'm checking in with you from lovely Free Soil, Michigan, my boy's hometown.

Between quality time getting acquainted with my new family, melting in the humidity, and taking in the scenery, I've been doing a lot of stitching.  So, get ready for new projects very soon.

In the meantime, did I tell you the good news?!  I've been selected for the July Project and Interview in the Needlework section on Craftster!

As most of you guys already know, I love Craftster- with a passion.  In fact, it's how I got back into crafting after many years and I "met" a lot of my online crafty friends.  It's full of talented people with nothing but nice things to say.  There are tons of great projects that will amuse and inspire you.  If it's not already a part of your daily online routine, change that right away.

Be sure to check out my silly interview with Pam aka Kittykill.  You'll get to find out what inspires me and the kind of stuff I'm stitching lately.

Read the awesomeness HERE!!!!

I like Craftster too...I just don't get on it as much as I like to.
Awesome crafty/artists on there that is for sure.

Hello! Thanks for commenting on my pincushion on Flickr. I think your embroidery is awesome (and appreciate the advice to new crafters from the interview).

Kym- Yeah, I used to be on there all the time... until I also became attached to Flickr. Ack too much stuff, not enough time.

Relaxolotl- Thanks so much, I'm glad that you liked my advice!

Hi Jacquie,

You are so beautiful, talented, loving and we are so proud of you. Your work is stunning and your diligence reminds me of when you were little and worked on a project. I remember all the art shows and projects we use to go to , and you and I did when you were little. You were always willing to learn and express yourself through art.

I love you ! Your interview was great. By the way you are my sunshine :)"There's an artist imprisoned in each one of us. Let him loose to spread joy everywhere."
Bertrand Russell

You have spread joy , and I am proud and glad you are mine! Next time maybe I will sign in with my blog you are inspiring me , I have not worked on it for awhile ~smile~

So glad I could hug and kiss you!


Mom ( Mama) and La Famiglia

Shucks, Mom- now I'm blushing. I love how you put Mama in ( ), like just in case I wouldn't know it was you. You're so cute and silly, I love you.
