Hi Nan

Hi Nan!

Nan is my grandmother. She spends most of the year in Florida. When she and my grandfather are "home" they are a few miles away in Manasquan. But from fall to spring, they're snowbirds.

Anyway, now that I'm a full time working gal, it's hard to make phone calls to say hi to people. By the time I get home, the house is full of busy kids, meals to prepare and what not.
Nan doesn't text, so that's out...she does however read my blog.

So hi Nan! I have a question for you. I have been admiring this cross stitch for over a year and I know that I won't get around to it. If your wrist and hand still allow you to cross stitch can I beg you to make this for me? I'll buy the kit and mail it to you. Pretty please?????

For those of you that know my grandmother, she is a counted cross stitch pro and amazing quilter. Her stitches are perfect and meticulous. I did not get this trait from her!!! I'm a bit of a mess and sloppy with my quilting and embroidery, but I do love doing it. Just don't have as much time as I would like these days. 

So, Nan, what do you say???

This is an Alicia Paulson embroidery kit.

  1. This post made me laugh. I bought this kit two or three years ago and still haven't made it. Why? From sheer intimidation! I haven't cross-stitched since high school, and I'm so afraid I'll mess it up. I really need to just try something small and simple to warm up and then dive into it. It's such a lovely sampler!
