Hanging on by a (Stitching) Thread

Hello! Happy mid-November. Baby, it's COLD outside!  At least it's sunny though. 
 
This post is just to let you know that I and my blog are featured in the December issue of Cross Stitch Collection magazine (UK). Many of you probably know of the lovely Carol from Stitching Dreams and she was featured in this magazine earlier this year, and she passed on my name to the magazine too. Thank you, Carol! 

Here's what the article looks like:
I guess we all have our dry spells when it comes to stitching. Hopefully mine will ease up soon. In the meantime, I have been sewing. Yes I have! You can see my creations here

Thanks for stopping by!

What a thrill and an honor! That's a great picture of you and some of my favorite samplers of yours, too!

Anne said...

Now your famous too!! What a fabulous article Melissa! I love the photo of you and the pictures of your stitching. The sampler on the right I have and saw at Buttons and Needlework in Victoria and I had to buy the threads...although I didn't get linen to stitch it on..I think I may have some large enough for it. PS...I'll measure myself soon...something I'm dreading!
