Jill's introduction

Hi Everyone! After seeing Martina post the link to this blog recently at the yuku board I knew it was just what I needed to get back to my poor, neglected Chatelaine wips! My name is Jill and I have been stitching since I was 10 (I am 32 now...). I have two kids, both boys, ages 10 and 1. I also work out of the home part-to-full time (depending on the week) as an electrical engineer. I have learned that even 5 minutes of stitching here and there will eventually add up to a finish! I've finished a handful of Chatelaine designs, have 8 in progress, and 30 or so fully kitted and ready to start anytime. I first found Martina's lovely designs when Convents Herb Garden was a mystery and the original castle design (which I have) was available as a kit directly from Martina. I have had to slow down my kitting of recent designs, but I still fully intend to stitch everything of hers...someday!

Some of these pictures aren't the best quality but I want to include a few of my earlier finishes anyway. Hopefully I can get some good light and take some newer pictures at some point. For now, here are my finished Chatelaines!

I actually feel like I need to keep my inhaler by the computer every time I log on this site!!

I have never had my breath taken away so often as with these beautiful designs.

When I first started stitching in 1993 it was hard to find anything different to teddy bears and flowers. These are in another league entirely!
