Hi, everybody - I'm Shelley, I live near Detroit, MI, USA. I'm 41 (on Friday!) and live with my husband, 28, and son, 16. I've been stitching off and on for about 20 years. I have disappointingly little to show for it, to be honest, but I'm really working on getting more done. In 2007, I think I finished 6 or 7 things, which I was pretty happy about. (I'm ashamed - I envy those who have finished in the mid to high double digits. *laughs*)
While I haven't finished a ton of things, I *have* managed to collect a huge amount of stash, and some of my favorites are Lizzie Kate, Little House Needleworks, Just Nan - oh, I can't even list them all. :) I will use any evenweave or linen fabric, love hand-dyed fabrics, and all kinds of fibers.
I'm excited to complete my first round, and love exchanges as a way to make sure I get much-needed stitching time in on a regular basis. Looking forward to getting to know you all.
