Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
Hand embroidery. I do counted cross stitch and traditional embroidery, and I have become keen on crazy quilting, ATCs and fabric postcards - thanks to Stitchin Fingers! I collect old embroidered linens of all kinds, including aprons, and they can be seen on my blogs.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
I learnt basic stitching skills when I was about 6 years old at primary school, and later at secondary school. I became interested in embroidery again in my 30's, and when I was 40-something, I joined the Embroidery Guild of Victoria, where I took the basic embroidery course "Elements Of Stitching".
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I'm 62 years young, married with no children, and before I retired, I worked as a personal carer for elderly and disabled people.

I have enough blogs without creating another one here! My main blog for my stitching and linen collection is Patra's Place of Stitching and Vintage Linens.
I also have a blog dedicated to my Embroidered Aprons and Embroidered Peacocks.

Gina, thanks for your quick reply.  I have two friends on the site and in this group so I'm sure they can refresh my memory.

Hi, Gina,

I'm trying to join your Cross Stitching Fingers group, clicked on JOIN button, nothing happened, so I tried a couple more times with no luck.  Am I remembering correctly that I have to be approved before my membership to each is accepted?  I thought I was supposed to get a message to that effect when I clicked on the JOIN button.  If my request comes up several times, please forgive the mistake.  Also, don't I get an email telling me that I have joined the group.  Altogether confused.  Thanks for your help.  I semding you a friend request also.  Hope you accept that too.

This is late, sorry Gina.   Health problems.  Sometimes you can't help bad luck. I live on Russell Island in Moreton Bay.  Lived in Brisbane, but got sick and tired of the city. Did the sea and tree change & wish I'd moved sooner. Peace and quiet!

Thank you Gina, I look forward to getting it in the mail!  I am sure it is beautiful and can't wait to see it :)  I saw your post on the Cross Stitchin Fingers page, I hope that your husband is doing well after his surgery!

Hi Gina,

Actually you did welcome me to the cross stitch group, but it was some time ago.  I never quite got around to setting up the exchange in February because of moving and such.  Thanks for checking though!

Hi Gina,
How kind of you to offer to swap humbugs. As I only made this one, I think I will keep it. I have had it on a shelf with a few other smalls. I rather like it there. Yes, you should do one for yourself.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Thank you very much.
