Good morning from chilly Minnesota!
Good morning from chilly Minnesota! My name is Teresa and I am posting this very first blog entry ever on a gorgeous, sunny fall day in southeast Minnesota. I live in Burnsville, just blocks away from Crystal Lake. This is not my first swap, but I haven't participated in one for a few years. I learned about this one from my zany friend Neila; aka the queen of swaps. Looking forward to meeting many new people and chatting about life!
I've been stitching, crafting, sewing, and such since I was three; the age when us girls were taken under gramma's wing and taught everything she knows. I did the stamped designs for many years and then learned counted cross-stitch from a mail order free kit when we were stationed in Ohio. One of the best things about living in MN is a group of close friends called the stitching chicks. Although we are all vastly different, this group has become a lifeline and support network for all.
Other than stitching, I enjoy spending as much time as possible reading or working on a new creative writing piece in my purple office. Walking down to the hidden spot by the lake is a perfect way to spend a few quiet hours just thinking. Our kids are all pretty much grown now, the youngest is a freshman in college, but soon we'll get to spoil a new baby--first grandkid is due in Feb.!
