I was invited to this blog by dear Joyce awhile ago, however, I didn't have enough time to post anything about myself until now. I am an elementary Learning assistance teacher and work like crazy all week and weekends when it's report card time. Thankfully, I am finished the reports and am now on Spring Break! Woohoo!! Now I have a wee more time to stitch and blog.
Chatelaine's are just magnificent aren't they?! I have admired Martina's creations for about 4 years now when I discovered her designs. I've only stitched two of her freebie designs and have one on the go right now, Knotgarden. Once I am finished with Knotgarden, I hope to start with Hummingbird Garden, a SAL with Joyce, for my mom. I stitch a lot of other designs, especially old samplers. I've finished 2 samplers thus far and am working on another. My aim is to stitch one a year. I also stitch a lot of smalls and make them into all kinds of finishes and lately, I have been on a big crochet kick. Something about crocheting in the evening works better for me while I am working. No need for counting or looking at a pattern, just hooking!! My blog, Doll's Musings, started 4 years ago and have met and been inspired by many wonderful people along the way. Without further ado, here are my humble Chatelaine's I have stitched.
