Welcome to my madness.

I’m Mindy and I love needlework — hence the name of my blog. I have been cross stitching for 30 years and needlepointing for about two years. I enjoy simple cross stitch and needlepoint, but also love the challenge of stitching with different fibers, creating my own designs on linen, and using a lot of different stitches. I also work on embroidery and crewel projects from time to time. Ever hear of the term SABLE — Stash Aquisition Beyond Life Expectancy? Well, that definitely applies to me. I also teach needlepoint and cross stitch classes at my favorite shop, Rittenhouse Needlepoint.

This blog focuses on news regarding needlework, specifically cross stitch, embroidery, stumpwork, and needlepoint. I will also use it to discuss my current projects, classes, experiences, and the projects of others. However, you will see my Twitter feed which I use for all sorts of topics. If you find it interesting, please use the link to follow me there.

I like to have a good time and have an odd sense of humor, but will try to behave myself here.
