Grow Your Blog Party!
It's time for a blog party! Since I'm hoping to get a lot of new visitors today, I should post a little about myself. My name is Kat, I'm 26 years old, and I love to cross stitch. My mother taught me how to stitch as soon as I was old enough to hold a needle, but I fell out of it for a while. As an adult, I started to have some anxiety issues and picked up some stitching as a way to relieve stress. I fell in love with it again and have been going strong ever since. I started this blog mainly to show off my WIPs and to connect with other stitchers. When I'm not stitching I like to read and watch movies so you may see mention of those things from time to time.
Currently, I live with my wonderful boyfriend in Sheffield, Ontario. We just moved here from the other side of the country (and Canada is a large country).
This is the other member of our family. Nisha is a 5-year-old Solomon Island Eclectus. She likes to sit and talk to me while I'm stitching (she says things like "Peekaboo" and "Hello baby"), but if I don't pay enough attention to her she will sneak over to steal a bobbin of my floss and fly away with it.
To welcome any new readers I may get, I'd like to offer a surprize giveaway on this post. The prize will be cross-stitch related. Absolutely anyone can enter. Just mention in a comment on this post that you would like to participate. On February 1st I'll randomly select one of the commenters to receive the prize. Please make sure that your email address is attached to your comments, otherwise I won't be able to contact you about it.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me and I look forward to meeting many new people and finding some exciting new blogs to follow this weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
