I have been cross stitching for 25 years and doing primitive embroidery needlework for almost as long.

My very patient Mother taught me to cross stitch and I consider her to be the true artist.

The weight of the scissors, the "feel" of the fabric, the linen needle case holding my tiny gold needles, trying to decide if I want to "change up" a color or two in the pattern.

Many hours are devoted to each finished piece and each and every tiny stitch is stitched with love and the hope that one of my items will find a special place in your heart and home.
