Hello everyone and welcome to anyone finding me for the first time through the Grow Your Blog party. This is the third year I've participated and I can't wait to find some new blogs to add to my reading list.
For the newcomers- I'm Sara and I blog from northern Indiana where I live with my wonderful husband, the dog, a 6 year old ninja turtle...
and a pair of 4 month old super heroes (who needs bibs when you can have capes!).
This started out as a blog about my cross stitch hobby but it has grown to include a little of this and that as our family has grown. I'm sure you've noticed the lack of posting from last year and I'm working on correcting that. I spent most of last year being pregnant with identical twins and between the doctor appointments needed for a high risk pregnancy and work and being Mom to the 6 year old there wasn't much time or energy for stitching so blogging got neglected too since I didn't want to keep blogging that I had nothing to show off. January wasn't a great blogging month either as we lost Erich's grandfather and no one has had time or energy for the normal things but February is going to be the month for stitching- we've got cold and snowy weather perfect for stitching evenings, baby boys that are quite content to perfect their scooting and rolling skills on their blanket while they try to gum every toy they can reach, and best of all we have no plans.
So if you hang around here you can look forward to lots of pics both of kids and stitching with a few of the dog thrown in too. I stitch a variety of designers and subjects but I am in love with the BAP so you're also likely to see lots of progress but not lots of finishes. My current focus pieces are these two but there are several more in my pile as you can see on the sidebar...
That's Space Traveler from HAED and Fish City from Stoney Creek and I'm actually working on Fish City now. I will get a new pic of it in a few days when I have a good chunk of progress to show.
Oh, and in honor of the party there will be a giveaway! I'm not silly enough to think that the ninja turtle and super heroes of the house are going to give me enough free time to actually stitch a prize this year but I will be giving away a small prize package that will include a few stitching supplies and maybe a few edible goodies too. Enter by commenting on this post and sometime on the evening of February 15 my personal random number generator will pick a number between 1 and however many comments there are and a winner will be chosen.
Thanks for visiting!
