Hi All. I'm learning both embroidery & Spark. Havn't found anyone in my area that does needlework except quilting. I made the mistake of choosing a large complicated cross stitch project first. Wow, needed way more info. A year, and smaller projects later, I'm still afraid to try a large one again. I've lost 50 pounds in the last 2 years, with 45 more to go. I've been in spark a short time.
Let the good times increase as the weight shrinks.

I've been doing embroidery for quite a while now. Very new to spark people and still trying to figure it all out. An ATW friend pointed the way here and I hope it keeps me motivated to lose the weight and get healthy. I was doing good until I tore my knee up the day after Easter, surgery went well but healing has been a nightmare with complications, so I gained back a lot of the weight I had lost....but it's getting better and I will succeed!!! Okay I'm off to figure out my next quilt which usually incorparates some embroidery. Sorry to have written a novel...everyone have a great day!!!!
