This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

I am not a cross stitch person. Well, I don't do counted cross stitch. I used to enjoy it when I lived in England because they had the patterns printed on the fabric. Not a whole load of guessing to do there. So.........i saw these little kids and grabbed them. If I complete them (sigh!!) I may do more. I am putting them here to sort of hold myself accountable.
I have completed the 4 hats that I had intended to do at Christmas plus one extra so maybe it works? The one I have not finished was the loom. Still working on that one.
So...........I will let you see the progress as I begin this project and hope I have finished and framed items to give next Christmas.
I made a start yesterday on this one.
What I like about this cross stitch is that the pattern is printed on the canvas, so no counting. I like that a lot. I will try to do some every day and see how it goes.I know it will not be up to my previous standards because I have lost the sight in my right eye. It makes it difficult to have perspective but I can at least still sew. Threading a needle is a laugh to say the least.
