Hi, and welcome to my profile and blog! My name is Jodie and I'm a cross-stitch addicted museum studies graduate student. I love stitching (clearly), knitting, quilting, reading, writing, and learning. I have a weird obsession with donkeys that I can't really explain. I'm very attached to the citizens of Llanview Pennsylvania who make the ABC soap One Life to Live worth watching every day, and I am freakishly obsessed with Rachael Ray. I'm a runner, a gardener, and a lover of all different kinds of tea with a very serious coffee addiction. I volunteer at a canoe museum, and I work in a salad bar chopping fruits and veggies, creating baskets, trays, and various seasonal concotions. I have amazing friends, a great family, and the most beautiful German Shepherd. So basically....I'm just me!
A few months ago I read on Vonna's blog about an organization called Love Quilts. This organization collects cross stitched squares and sews them into quilts to give to children who are suffering from illnesses. I decided to stitch a square as well, and chose Peyton's quilt because the theme was "the colour purple" which is one of my faves. Here's what I stitched-
Lizzie Kate "It's a Girl Thing"
Stitched on 16 count aida with DMC floss
It's headed for the post office in the morning...I can't wait to see how the whole quilt turns out once it's been put together!
