Today I'm taking part in the Grow Your Blog Hop :)
If you are new here
I'd love to welcome you!
We are supposed to tell a bit about ourselves,
so here goes.....
That's me in the middle of the photo above.
My handsome hubby of almost 33 years,
our children and our 6 grands
are the jelly in my donuts....
They certainly make my life sweet!
I started this blog in January of 2009.
To be honest, I started the blog
just so that I could take part in an apron swap :)
I also thought it would be a fun record
for my grandchildren someday
to know what their Nana did with her time.
I know that I would have loved to get a glimpse
of my Oma's daily life.
I certainly NEVER thought that anyone
other than family would care what I wrote about.
This blog has changed my life in ways
I could never have imagined.
I have made the most wonderful friends
and I continue to meet more!
I have re-kindled my love for sewing
and even opened an Etsy shop.
I try to share what I've learned growing up
with a professional seamstress for a Mom.
I was literally covered in thread
from the time I could walk!
I had my first full sized Singer when I was 8.
(and I still own it!)
My Oma taught me to embroider when I was 10.
And I started Cross Stitch about 3 years ago
and I've been hooked ever since.
I tried to knit once,
but it was a dark experience that I don't like to talk about......
So look around,
check out a tutorial or two
and don't hesitate to say "Hello"!
Your comments are the highlight of my day!
OK...enough about me..
