You see, Mom taught me embroidery before I was ten. We started with useful things and applied iron-on transfers. Flowers, animals, butterflies, birds and angels took form. Plain white fabric came alive with color.

Fast forward (more years than I care to mention!). Three dresser scarves embroidered by my Grandmother surfaced. No transfer. They were completed just by counting threads. That's when I learned about counted cross stitch.

And after my first project, I was hooked. A Birth Record, a Family Tree, a Wedding Record, a baby quilt, Christmas decorations and greeting cards . . . I was off and running!

I don't just like cross stitch. I love it! I spend every otherwise idle moment working, designing or writing about it. I enjoy it most when I'm working on a gift. People appreciate them so much, I call each one "my gift of time."

We stitch all of our designs and provide a photo of each one. That is your guarantee that each chart can be stitched as it is presented, without you having to make changes on the fly. (Nobody likes to rip out stitches!)
