Hello...I'm a newbi to this site.

   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 on.  

   I 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 here!    Smiley

Welcome!  Smile

You're quite prolific with crafting...I'm sure you do much better than you think.  I can't do some of those things (and particularly not sewing/quilting)!  I've made candles but not soap.  Making soap is also on my list, as is canning food.

LOL, as for sewing, I'll be happy if I can somewhat sew elastic onto a stretched-out item.  Wink

So what is the deal with Pickled Watermelon Rind Pickles?  Sounds interesting!

Feel free to post photos of any of your work so we can all drool!  Wink
