  1. Hi Sharon,

    The Tif Challenge was a great site but I should certainly visit this one more often now that I am exploring stitch much more. I love the way you work through all the stitches.

    I Just remembered the name of your site here and thought how appropriate it would be to tell you what I am up to. Have you heard of zentangles well, I have been looking at these in an approach to free up my stitching. I have some images of the drawings and my first attempt at stitch with this idea so you might like to take a look.

    I admit that I am also trying to make a come back after a long spell away from blogging so I really do need some encouragement as I have not been too well. If any of your followers remember me I would be so glad if they would pop by add a comment and feel free to add their name and photo to my followers gadget. I'll certainly be back soon to follow here too. Best Wishes Tricia x
