Thought for the Day

Politicians are like diapers.  They both need changing regularly, and for the same reason.

  1. I don’t remember how I came across your blog, probably one blog led to another and another ,but you have some beautiful charts. I have downloaded a couple and hope to start one soon.

    Thank you so much

    • Hi Sheila,

      Thank you! I’m happy that you like my work. Please send me a picture when you finish stitching, and with your permission, I’ll post it. I love to see my designs after they’re stitched … it’s like seeing one of the kids graduate!


  2. Your blog is so much fun always. Go to my blog and pick up a reward for your inspiration.

  3. Hi,
    I am the editor of a quarterly newsletter for our “Tri-Area Needle Arts” chapter of The Embroiderers’ Guild of America Inc. Our chapter is in the tri-state area of West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio. I try to put a “freebie” pattern or two in each newsletter and during my search this month, I came across your blog. I would like to have your permission to use one or two of your charts in the next newsletter. Typically, I would ask permission for specific charts but to be truthful, I can’t decide which charts I want to use. 🙂 If you need to know which specific charts before you can give me permission, I can let you know by Friday. I am asking permission for the April, May, June 2010 newsletter only. The chart would be printed as is with the copyright information and I would add your website information.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    Dovie Bowen
