My name is Colleen A. and I'm brand new. I'm 39, single and live in Pennsylvania. I've been cross stitching for many years but always for others and have never actually done a piece for myself. I also recently started cross stitching for Coles Quilts. I have admired this site for many months once I learned about the art of exchanges. The creativity on thsi board is amazing and I love admiring the pieces. I too look forward to stitching for new friends and getting to know you all.
