I've been doing alot of thinking about doing a blog and finally decided to just bite the bullet and set one up. I've been in the cross stitch industry for 12 years now and have seen a a lot of changes. Some good, some not so good. So I hope this blog reflects my thoughts on the world of cross stitch and my love of the art. I do believe cross stitch is an art. You take a blank piece of fabric and use colored threads to create a design. Now in my case the design has been drawn by someone else but I've found that cross stitching satisfies the frustrated artist in me.
A little about myself. I live in Phoenix (hence the name of my blog) with an adoring husband (his words) and my oldest son. My daughter is home for the summer but will be returning to college in a couple of weeks. My middle child, also a son, lives in Minneapolis with his wife. No grandkids yet. I also have 2 dogs and the lovely kitty you see here is Squeak, my calico kitty. She also goes by the names of Brat, Demon or Monster depending on who's calling her. ;-)
I hope to be posting a few of my WIP's as well as some finished projects. I just need to figure out how to get the pictures from the camera to the computer.
A journey always starts with a first step. I hope you'll come with me on this walk through my world of cross stitch (with some knitting and a few other things thrown in).
