Hello from me

Hello everyone.

I'm Kerry. I live in Auckland, New Zealand and I'm currently working on my third Chatelaine. I hadn't done much on it for ages, but got going again at the beginning of this year and have just finished part 6, so this SAL came along at the perfect time for me. I'm hoping to alternate between this and a HAED as my main projects in 2014.

So picture!

I'm currently working on Illuminated Medieval Sampler and, as I said, have just finished part 6.

Illuminated Medieval Sampler by Chatelaine, stitched on Tiger Eye from Silkweaver (now discontinued)
I've previously stitched Mini Mystery J and Alpine Seasons Garden. You can find pictures of those (and a number of my other cross stitch finishes) in the gallery on my own (often neglected but I'm trying to do better) stitching blog at

On a more personal level, I'm married and the mother of a wonderful 10 year old boy who has ADHD and so keeps me pretty busy most of the time. I have ME/CFS myself, so those two things combined mean I'm a SAHM who needs a lot of rest. I love my stitching (and patchwork) as it is one of the few things I do where I can see concrete progress that I'm achieving things in my life. I don't stitch nearly as much as I would like as I get too tired if I do too much, but I'm so glad I have that creative outlet in my life and don't know what I'd do without it.

I hope to keep up with the SAL, but as with everything in my life it all depends on health and circumstances. All the same, my intention is to work on part 7 once I finish the page I'm currently stitching on my HAED.

Thanks for having me.
