I Taught My Nurse!!...

I haven't even read my emails yet for the day...I just had to post the news! I taught my nurse how to cross stitch today and this is better than winning the first place ribbon in the county fair!! She picked up on it so fast, I couldn't keep up with where she was on the alphabet Letter 'J' for her son's names! Jaidan is his first name, then the other two kids I will have  to ask. Now tomorrow I am going to have her hold this up, and I will take a picture of her with her fob, but for right now I scanned her letter J and scissor fob that I gave to her. It was a funfilled emotional moment for me. she is the second nurse that I have taught and they both seem to enjoy this dying hand skill and talent. Here is her 'J' and she started on the second one already too! I am so proud of her! hugs, Queeny  P.S. I can't seem to upload the photo...I will try again tomorrow!

My first ribbon win!

I finally decided to enter something into the county fair and I won first place! I was so happy that I cried! the piece was stitched on 28ct antique white jobelan . it is donna vermillion giampa's Isaiah 40:31 by the praying hands collection. I also entered the portrait of Christ as a display of my work. here I am with the winning first ribbon! hugs, Queeny

Hello fellow stitchers and crafters!! You are not going to believe how goofy I am ...oh yes you will! LOL I was trying to sign into my blog with my new married name 'Pamela Redfern' and could not find my old blog so that I could post and put up stuff. ANYHOW, this is where I am at today--I am going through my cross stitch and other crafts and I am really going to make an effort to stay on this stash diet so I can do some finishes. other crafts that I like are ceramics, painting with oil or acrylic, felt/foam ornaments...anything Christmas!! I might set up a blog JUST for Christmas! hey there is an idea. I am going to be making folders of my cross stitch pattern collections and my Works In Progress, so stay tuned. Also I have to include my UFO's...no longer the Queen of UFO's but I do have 'em...for right now, signing off, hugs, Queeny
