OK - here goes - My name is Kim and I'm NUTS about NEEDLEWORK!
Why do I blog?I am thoroughly amazed at the connection stitchers have to each other. The people I've met through my blog are amazing. They are like family to me - sharing our woes, pain and joys. Such creativity and open sharing of ideas and projects! Reading other blogs inspires me to create more and more. Sometimes I feel like my head will explode I have so many ideas running around in there.
My motto is "The work of the hands brings forth the spirit of the heart." I love making things for others. When I share the work of my hands, I feel like I'm giving them a part of me. Our home is decorated with many things I've stitched - from needlework miniatures to a large tapestry. When I look at each piece, it brings back memories of when I stitched it. Some of those memories make me smile - others a tear. But it's all good.
One of my other passions is painting porcelain. I paint in the 18th century European style, meaning the paint dries before I fire it in my kiln. I LOVE Limoges boxes. Here's one I painted:
Needlework, painted porcelain, blogging. Love it all.
Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you love to create. I will choose one lucky person who leaves a message - a SURPRISE GIFT will be given. Please, PLEASE make sure I can contact you. Sometimes I get lovely messages from people who are "no-reply" and I feel awful I can't reply to them.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit. I'd love to hear from you!
