About Me

I’m in my mid-ish 30’s (excuse me while I sob uncontrollably). I love coffee, cross stitching, reading, gardening and travel. I hope to pass along some patterns and pick a few up along the way.

Kristi got this one, I think the water took the longest to stitch.

Chinese Prunus

I think this is such a lovely pattern. I got it at Stitch Alley.


I stitched this Fairy for my niece Erica, and doubt that I'll ever do another! It was so involved and I can’t count the number of times I had to pull it apart to correct a miss count.

Yeats Poem

I used part of a Yeats poem for this piece that I made for my niece Erica. Bubby (Dr. C Breuer) first used this section of the poem for a beautiful stitching she made for her borther (my best friend) Jeremy.

Halloween 07

I got this pattern (though I changed it a little) from BH&G Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazine from the Sep/Oct. 94 issue. It's a Susan Banker design titled "Ghostly Greetings”. My sister sent me a ton of free cross stitch magazines and paraphernalia.

Pooh and Piglet

This is a pattern from the Classic Pooh Bear and Friends site and I made it into a card. I prefer the classic pooh style to the modern version. My sister Vikki picked some prints up of classic Pooh for my sister Eve's children when we were in Paris.

Teddy Bear

This is another pattern from the free goods I received from my sister. It's from the Jan/Feb 88 issue.

In the Meadow

I'm not sure where I got this pattern from, though I know it was a freebie from another site. I love the puffy sheep.

Orange Tree

I think this orange tree is so pretty. I'm still not happy with the color of the pot, and have changed it several times.

I'm afraid that I can't seem to remember where I got this pattern from, but love the rose.

West Virginia Sampler

I still haven't finished this sampler, I started it while visiting my sister in WV. I bought the pattern from Criss Cross Row (love this site), but have changed the saying to a verse from Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat
