My name is
Debbie and I just joined the Stitchboard website. I
retired early to care for my live-in mother who has
COPD. I have a husband, two dogs and a boom-er-rang son
who lives with us more than not.
I do "a bit" of several things but
nothing to perfection. Right now I am
cross-stitching stamped kitchen towel sets for Christmas
gift giving. People don't sew
much these days and I thought it would be nice to
give something that I spent time
took a sewing class in junior-high and made a few outfits.
This year, I canned my first batch of Pickled
Watermellon Rind Pickles! In the past I
have completed a couple of small-ish sized
"counted cross stitch" pictures, two "stitch and stuff"
rabbits and five sets of stamped kitchen Christmas towel
sets. I do some
crocheting (afghans mostly), some straight-line beading
like bracelets and necklaces, I attempted a
quilted baby blanket, I did some tied-fleece blankets
and other misc. light-weight craft
dabbling. I am interested in learning more about all
crafts in general. I would love to get better
at cross-stitching and crocheting. Would love to
learn to quilt, make soap, can food and play my
harmonica, dulcimer and ukulele. I am a
jack-of-all crafts.... Master of none, kinda girl.
I am happy to receive instruction on improving
my stitching skills so HELLO and nice to be
