Hi! First, a big thank you to Cindy F. and Wendy for starting this blog and allowing HAED addicts from around the world share this hobby! I have a co-worker who thinks I must be a masochist for enjoying this!

I have been stitching for about a year and a half, self taught from the humble beginnings of a bad kit. I don't grid my fabric, park my threads, or work a 10x10 square and I assume this slows me down. I tend to learn new skills as I need them to complete a pattern I like.
