Hi All!!

I noticed a lot of stitchers have created their own blog to share their stitching work and I thought I would give it a go!! :)

First of all I think a bit of an introduction is in order.

My name is Amanda, I am 23 from Liverpool and I am crazy about cross stitch. I live with my Hubby-To-Be (Gregg) we are officially tying the knot in July 2013, I also have a gorgeous 2 year old daughter Ellie and a handsome 4 month old son Ollie. I was taught to cross stitch when I was about 8 by my mum (who sadly past away when I was 14) and at first I didn't take to it as I was quite an active child, never sitting still. When my mum past away I was given all her cross stitching stash, and then the cross stitching became more serious as it was a way of getting some alone time and thinking of my mum while stitching, now that I have my own home and 2 little kiddies stitching is a way for me to unwind at the end of the day and I love stitching things for my kiddies!!

Well I think that's enough of the intro, time to crack on with the stitching!! :)

Happy Stitching!!
