Up and Running

I'm here! It took me long enough to figure this out but I'm up and running now. Thanks Dani and Rebecca!
Now for a little about myself. I live in eastern Ontario in a small village with my DH Bob and a Ragdoll cat named Finnigan (much to Bob's dismay since he is not a cat lover). I'm mother to 3 boys ( Jeff-26, Dan-22 and Chris-19) who at this point have all left the nest. I work full time as a medical lab technologist and I'm addicted to cross stitch.
My sister got me interested when she gave me a cross stitch piece as a housewarming gift. None of my family has ever been particularily crafty and I figured that if she could do it so could I! I ran out and purchased my first kit (counted of course!). It wasn't until I called her with some questions that I realized she had done a stamped kit. Too late - I was hooked! I've been stitching off and on for about 17 yrs now.
I just finished hosting a SAL with some of myYahoo stitching group friends from Southeastern Ontario. We are trying to get together every few months for a weekend of stitching.
We had a blast and I've made some great new friends who encouraged me to start blogging.
I'm not much of a rotation stitcher. I've always tried to stick to one or two pieces. That seems to work for me. I'll post some pics of my WIP shortly if I don't screw it up!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging, and don't be scared, if you can teach yourself counted cross stitch you can tackle this. Thank you again for the wonderful weekend of stitching...I can't wait for the next one!
