Stitching cards really did captivate me because I could easily complete one at Christmas time to give to a very special lady friend. Getting up in years, her crocheting days were coming to an end but not her appreciation of a handcrafted, straight-from-the-heart gift. She was and always will be the inspiration for my Christmas card designs.
Lucky for me, my son married a stitcher! She has been my right-hand gal, giving unbiased opinion, model stitching, and being the best festival pal anyone could want. She's a great stitcher-in-law!!!
I got hooked on counted cross stitch after a co-worker showed me the design she was stitching. It was so beautiful and seemed so easy to stitch that I just had to try it for myself. Since then I've never stopped stitching! I especially enjoy stitching "outside the picture frame." So, my family and friends have graciously accepted embellished sweatshirts, mugs, cards, etc.
