New Beginnings!

Happy Happy New Year all!!!! I have been planning this post all day so here goes!!!!!
First I have to say that I am loving Paperback Swap
Which is listed in my sidebar! I am in the process of mailing out nine books and my first is on the way to me. I may never need to go to a bookstore again!!! Check it out if you like!
I worked New Years Day so just managed to get one thread in my new start but it was started so that is what truly matters! I started NC Holly Pixie......after much debate she won out! Here are two pix... and Iam really enjoying her and the fabric is making her pop! I joined a SAL for a bit of motivation and friendship started by Kathy A. and the new blog is Stitch A Mirabilia . So go take a peek if you like and if you want to join contact Kathy A.
Next is my updated Cinderella sampler and I will post the designer soon...it's downstairs and I'm upstairs......
and . She is halfway done now and I am so loving stitching her!!!!! Even on 36count she just flows......
May I also add that there is a new Nora Corbett called Nora's Alphabet out there and exclusive that can be seen here at Cross My Heart Ltd . and yes I am planning on adding her to my stash. Although after her I am considering getting on the stash wagon...but then when the new NC letters come out what to do??????
I am grateful for new starts and choices........
Oh and yesterday was my all time favorite authors birthday...J.R.R. Tolkien 1/4/1892. Happy Birthday Mr. Tolkien and thank you for giving me many hours of reading pleasure!!!!

  13. Love, love, love Cinderella Sampler, Juls!! And, of course, you always make the NC girls look enticing. You're an amazing stitcher. Are you sure you're a nurse,,or do you use that as an excuse to hide out stitching??? :)
