I never thought that I would become so involved with a hobby as I have with this one. I have belonged to two EGA chapters and I have went to several retreats. I have stitched for going on thirty years and it all started with this picture. I needed a Christmas present for my mother-in-law and with limited funds I decided to do some thing home made. After seeing this picture in a magazine I decided to try my hand at it. I immediatly fell in love with it. It's a hobby that has seen me through the good times as well as the bad and I hope to be doing it for as long as I am able.
