One of my friends mother lost all of her plants in the Katrina Hurricaine. Here is a basket of beauties for her.
I love these boxes. Here is my collection.
This is Cherished Stitches Limited Edition Husewife for 2005 and one of my goals for 2006.
I found some of these old charts at Accents and Stitches and Crosstitch Corner both in Louisiana.
I love Jeannette Douglas Designs and her two latest are beautiful. My roomates gave me the dowery box for my Birthday.

This is my first try at blogging. Crosstitching has been one of my favorite hobbies for many years. I was first introduced to this fine art by a co-worker. Laura was stitching jar covers for her boy's teachers in 1978. Watching her do this sparked my interest, I have since be able to teach others. I enjoy this hobby very much. It is very relaxing and gives one a feeling of accomplishment. It is most rewarding to share something you have stitched with others and watch their enjoyment of it. Above is just some of the stash I have collected over the years. Because of Katrina and the move to Baton Rouge I have had to condense. I must say I lost none of my crosstitching during the hurricane. I had then all lock tight in rubbermaid containers and placed in the interior of the apartment. I also lived on the second floor of the apartment building.
I have found a new LNS in BR Crosstitch Corner, Robin and Diane have been very helpful. I still do my internet orders and must visit New Orleans and my friends there at Acadian Corner and Accents In Stitches.
