Cross Stitch

Thought my readers - that's if there are any - might like to know of a website for cross stitch that I frequently visit.  It has lots of lovely patterns and a new freeebie is added every day.  If you go there through the following link, and join up for their free newsletters, you will get some points so you too can download their cross stitch files.

Hope you enjoy the site.

Just found a new Block of the Month program on the Canton Village Quilt Works blog.  It has only just started, so I am going to keep track of it over the coming year . Well that's the plan anyway. 

You can see them on the link

I tried to pick up the button link too - but it appears I am not that tech savvy.

Now to actually take part.......

Next Blog

Every so often - usually after I post something - I view my blog and then click on the 'next blog' link at the top of the page, just to see where it gets me.

I find it very strange that every day there is a different series of blogs that I end up linking to, all with a similar vein/thread.  Just now I did this and was 'rewarded', if you can call it that, with a series of blogs that had religious overtones - not my cup of tea at all!!  Some days they are all about quilts, others crochet, some in spanish.  NOw if todays were about a wicca journey - i might read those.

I did find a really interesting one once - the writer was an avid rennaisance faire goer.  She even made her clothing in the way of the time - hand sewn and embroidered, etc and tired to base them on patterns from the time.  Some nice pics too.  I like to embroider, but would never go to that extreme.
