This is going to be so much fun and so rewarding as well! I love, love, love people. I love meeting new people and getting to know them. I love becoming friends. Whether you have my same interests or not I want to get to know you.
I started my blog about two years ago. I love all kinds of needle work ad just saw the blog as an extension of the arts that I love. Cross stitch is way up there on the list of my favorites, but I do also knit and crochet.
I was born and raised in NH. A little city called Dover that has gone through so many changes over the years. I guess all cities have and fortunately, though most all of the big factories in Dover have closed down over the years, Dover continues to do well. I was raised with just one sister who lives in Dallas, Georgia today.
Nine years ago, we left our home in NH and moved down here to NC. We never thought that we would leave NH. Never ever, but felt continued tugs from down here and started praying about God's will. We have one son who lives down here with his family. He's a gunny Sgt. in the Marine's and will be retiring in a couple of years now. We also have grandchildren and another son back in NH and Maine. After several months, we realized that God was making it quite obvious that He wanted us here. So after nine years, we can look back and see how he actually paved the road for us, and here we still are!
Above you see me and my dear hubby, Bill. We're truly evenly yoked and we're so very blessed. On the right is my little daughter-in-law, Robin and my younger son Guy.
Another picture of Mr. Bill and myself.
This is Matthew. Our youngest grandson and Guy and Robin's son. He's showing off the popcorn he popped the "old fashion" way. He was pretty proud of that!
No more pictures right now. I do have plenty more to show, but don't want to drive you all away!
I also love to garden. Still getting used to growing down here in NC. Back in NH, any seed or plant that we put into the ground, grew and multiplied, but it has been a struggle down here for us, but we're still trying. I love working with the soil and often rescue plants that have been ignored in old abandoned house lots and all quite often.
I need to let you all go right now. Please drop in from time to time so we can become friends. Let me know if you have any questions. Until next time, stay warm and safe. Once again. Last but not least. Remember to "feel the colors".
