My First Blog & Post

I've seen all of my fellow loomers, cross-stitchers and crocheters with blogs so I decided to start one of my own...With my personality, I will always have something to say or post lol...More about me...

I'm a mother of 2 1/2 children - my son Dante' is daughter Ariana is 3 and my lil one who's still in the oven (a girl due Oct 18th)...I have a wonderful fiance TB who is the love of my life...I was married to the kids father but he passed due to a massive heart attack in July 06 while I was pregnant with Ariana...I've moved on since then and I'm happy which is what matters...

I've been a crafter really all my mother worked in a sewing factory for 30 years...I used to help her as she made cheerleading uniforms and sold them to the entire ballpark during my cheerleading years...I picked up cross-stitch when I was 11...Then went to crocheting about 5 years ago...I tried to teach myself to knit but just couldn't get the coordination for two needles at the same time lol so I picked up looming which is much much easier!

I have many projects going now but I'm doing more looming than anything else...I'm working on a cross-stitch picture for my son that is gonna take years to finish lol...If you know anything about cross-stitch, this pattern is 15 pages long, finished size is 29X21 on 14 count...I've managed to finish 1 page and I'm on the second...every block has a stitch in this pattern and its very detailed! I'm doing a lot of projects for the baby and learning new ones everyday...I haven't crocheted anything in a while...I need to get started on Christmas gifts which will be what I will work on next after I finish with the baby items...

Be sure to keep a check on my blogs as I will post probably everyday since I have nothing better to do...I'll also keep pictures of my work up as well as pics of previous projects I've finished from years ago...Makes me feel good to get comments :)
