Grow Your Blog 2015
I am so excited to be participating in the Grow Your Blog 2015 event hosted by 2 Bags Full! If this is your first time to visit my blog, welcome! If you've been here before, welcome back!
For those of you who don't know me (or who might have forgotten!), my name is Katy and I'm an avid cross stitcher! I am 34 years old, married to my college sweetheart P for 12 years, and we have two kids, daughter T who is 8 and son D who is 4. I'm a Texan, born and raised, though I really don't have an accent. I've been cross stitching since I was a kid - one of my aunts taught me how after I fell in love with the cross stitched stockings she made for her family and I've been stitching off and on over the years ever since!
I love blogging about my stitching and sharing my progress. It's wonderful to have a community out there who appreciates what an art this actually is and who share the passion for it that I have. I love visiting other blogs and seeing everyone's progress, too. I've been so inspired by so many different posters over the years!
You could say my stitching style is eclectic. I am not a huge fan of primitive/old fashion patterns and prefer bright colors and beads and shapes and details, but almost anything that catches my eye is fair game! I have well over twenty WIP's that I'm working on in a rotation right now, and I find that it is wonderful to have so many projects going on because I don't get bored just working on one piece. Some pieces I admittedly like more than others, but I'm determined to finish every one of them!
My greatest accomplishment in stitching has to be the stockings I made for all four of us. Mine and my husband's stockings were finished in time for our second Christmas together, and each of the kids had their stockings ready in time for their first Christmases:
I can't wait to visit more blogs and find other people out there passionate about stitching like me! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon!
Until next time!
