I am so flattered to be part of Sorority Rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Come see this beautiful blog!
I know most of you know of this site but for any new folks, you need this link:
It is so organized and I cannot imagine the time it took to construct this site. It is so nice to see everyone's updates.
The royal wedding made me think of the Royal School of Needlework - would it not be wonderful to learn more about it? I am hoping that while the new Princess is living in the country, she will pick up some needlework and eventually choose the School as a focus and promote it as an official function.
I have read that our European stitching sisters pay dearly for DMC threads - while here in the USA, we pay more for the overseas designers. I will be happy to trade with anyone that has European designs - I have an excellent amount of thread and I will be glad to trade with you - just send me an email = it's on the side of this blog.
Besides needlework, I also enjoy painting items - like this oval box:
Don't you think GD will love these?
Someone recently wrote to me after seeing the blog and introduced herself - we like some of the same things and it was a real treat because it came while in the mist of a terrible migraine that is in the 5th day. And I remember thinking she does not realize what a gift she gave (though she probably does by now because I wrote back and thanked her!!). This makes me aware of how thoughtfulness can make someone's day exceptional and we all need more of those.
