Thank you....

In my younger years cross stitching and embroidery were my favorite crafts, even though I quilted, I loved to stitch. As in this post I have explained my eye site situation. So, I can longer cross stitch, so quilting and fabric now became my passion.
Thanks go out to a lovely fellow blogger
Kaaren is the designer of many beautiful stitch projects. So, I thought if I can quilt and see to follow a line, why can’t I stitch?
So, I gave it a try…

Now this is just a try, but I was delighted to see that I could actually accomplish this procedure. I even remembered how to make french knots!! I do not think I am ready for Kaaren’s work but I owe her a huge thanks for the push and inspiration to pick up a craft I use to do as a little girl.
Please check out her blog tomorrow for her
First Friday Freebie
You will be delighted and inspired.
Thank you Kaaren, from the bottom of my heart!!
