I'm so excited!!!

My DH helped me get my blog up and running today. He helped me find the templates that I was looking for, and now I finally have my masterpiece. Took Milsey (that's my nickname for my DH) to the doctor today and are finally getting his diabetes under control, and I must say that I am relieved. I've been so worried about him.

As for me, I'm taking steps to re-open my cross stitch shop in September. I had to close the shop recently due to family illness, and am hoping that, if all goes well, we will re-launch in the fall. It has always been my dream to have a shop of my own, and with some very hard work on my part (and my web guru of a hubby), I will be successful.

I started stitching when I was a child, and I absolutely love everything about it. Stitching has helped me through some very tough times. Right now my favourite designers are Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks, and her daughter Nikki Leeman of Country Cottage Needleworks. I just love their designs and am always excited when new patterns are available. Perhaps tomorrow, I will begin posting pictures of my current WIP Herbal Tea from Little House.

Personally, there aren't any LNS in my neck of the woods. So I am constantly searching the net looking for new treasures, patterns, etc. that I can try. I ordered oodles of new stitching odds and ends to try from one of my favourite internet shops. They haven't arrived yet, so I have been busy bugging the mail order department of said shop in hopes that sheer will and telepathy will hurry along my packages. I will post pics when things arrive.

Some of my favourite things to do are to watch General Hospital (known from this point on as GH), drinking tea with my DD Bonnie, reading Harlequin Blaze books, and my new fave is blogging. I looooove reading other stitcher's blogs, and seeing everyone's WIPs. Well, it's getting late (DS Ethan is asleep and the house is quiet) and Big Brother After Dark is going to start in less than an hour. DD finally received her computer in the mail from the repair guys at HP. She's in heaven and I finally have control of my laptop - yay me! Okay well I will try to post tomorrow with some pictures. goodnight all.
