Hi Everyone! I I'm from SC and enjoy cross-stitching. I'm currently working on a palm trees silhouette for my daughter and her husband to decorate their new tiny house.

RRH705, Like you I have recently rejoined SP. I hope to stay with it this time and no more quitting. And I also cross-stitch to avoid eating out of boredom. Lately I can't do as much of it as I like because it affects my elbow. But I do as much as I can because I want to finish this project for my daughter one of these days!



Embrace your hunger because it means you're burning fat.

Hello! I am a seasoned vet of SP but am rejoining as my weight is going up again. I really enjoy cross stitching and have a drawer full of patterns that I alternate between. I look forward to discussing all things weight loss and cross stitch.

To start, I definitely use stitching as a distraction from bored eating or emotional eating. It helps to ease any stress much better than over eating does!

It took more than a day to put it on. It will take more than a day to take it off. MOVE.

6 months from now you're not going to remember how that food tasted; 6 months from now you will be able to see results

Hello to you all, Ellen here. Started this woe a week ago and still winding my way threw this encouraging site. I say WOE because I know this is not temporary but the beginning of a permanent way of life.
I'm a crafter there for I am a couch potato. I have been known to sit and crochet or stitch for hours & hours. Jumping from 1 project to another, only to move and realize how stiff I am. That is my main goal. To get up and move. Taking 10 min. walks around the yard 2-3 times a day. If by doing this I happen to loose a few pounds I won't complain. emoticon

Hi! I'm new to the team,but have already read and love the messages that the team members have added. I do all kinds of crafts! My mother had 2 sisters and they loved to get together to make projects. Sadly my aunts and mother have died, but I have many memories of working with them. One aunt did braided rugs,hooked rugs, and quilting and crewel. The other aunt liked to sew, design and make crewel pillows and throws, and wrote poems. My mother enjoyed embroidery and helped me with dress making and COOKING. Our last few days together were spent having me cook for her and learn how to make Finnish Foods. I will always have fond memories of freezing and canning foods,making pickles and her entertaining many of the church's visiting speakers and guests. I have many projects to finish so I am concentrating of finishing a counted cross-stitch sampler.

Hi! I'm Elaine from Malaysia. I joined way back in 2006. My birthday is 24th October. I'm single with no kids. Technically, I don't have a pet but I love teasing my Dad's Arowana, a kind of giant freshwater fish. I love reading and cross-stitching. I also crochet and would love to take up knitting too!

I would love to drop 25lbs! I chose my username eowyn2424 because Eowyn is my favorite character in my favorite book, The Lord of the Rings. 2424, because 24 is my favorite number, it is repeated because someone already took 24, so I repeated it to get a unique name!

Welcome how are you? I don't have much to lose either. I have not been stitching much I need to start back so I do not eat at night lol. My future husband is not as supportive as I would like him to be but he has lost a little so he is trying to eat and cleaner too so he can keep it off lol.

Hi everyone!

I first started cross stitching in high school and continued through my 20's. Got a bit burned out so I turned to reading (I still enjoy that). I'm 44 and have taken it up again. It's nice and relaxing emoticon

Hi, I'm Heather! I learned to cross stitch when I was girl scout in grade school, but only in the past 2 years or so have I been stitching consistently. I'm currently working on a Thanksgiving project (I know, I know... I didn't finish in time). You can see some of my work on my flick page!

Hi stitching friends. I'm not new to SP..... I'm a backslider, having fallen by the wayside a couple years ago. Happy to be back! emoticon

I enjoy stitching very much, so relaxing with no pressure to "get the job done". I retired from full-time employment last Oct and have the time to stitch. I'm currently working on a project by the artist Durene Jones. I just love her designs; they are lively and full of colour.

I'm happy to be a part of this team and looking forward to getting to know many of you.

Hey everyone! I'm new to spark, but not to stitching. I've been stitching since I was 10 (16 years!), and I just love how therapeutic and relaxing it is.I'm currently working on a piece from a collection called "Twisted Stitches", a collection of alternative cross stitch pieces. The piece I have at the moment is a portrait of a burlesque Zombie, if you can believe it!

I hope to get to know you all better.

Hi there! I've been on SP a couple of months but just joined this team. I am from the UK. My birthday is 24th June. I am married just over 9 yrs, with no kids or pets. I work as a payroll administrator.

I haven't had a lot of time or energy for hobbies in recent years, but I am looking to start doing cross stitch for relaxation, which is why I have joined this team. :-)

I chose my username because I have a burning desire to reach my weight and fitness goals. Please check out my spark page for more about me!

I look forward to getting to know you all and learning how to cross stitch! :)

Hello I have come back to Spark too - I am another one who thought I could make it on my own but discovered that I couldn't. I am pleased to be back.

I love cross stitch and have a project of a Maltese village scene on the go.

HI Cassandra, welcome back! I too "left" SP and came back recently. This time WE CAN DO IT!

I have crossed stitched for years and years but I get so busy with work and other hobbies that sometimes I don't do it for a long time. Then I miss it terribly! I have so many things that I want to make right now! But I've never tried anything as ambitious as a Thomas Kincade - I would love to one day though!

If you ever need support feel free to send me a message, also feel free to send a friend request if you would like!

Happy Sparkin'!
Gloria

Hello all! I have been on this team before a long time ago under a different board name (I thought I could lose the weight on my own and quit SP for awhile which was a mistake). Anyway I am back now and I joined this team for support not only on weight loss but on staying motivated on my cross stitch projects. My mom taught me to cross stitch as a young girl and I have done it ever since. I am slow to finish projects because I start them and then put them down for awhile before going back to them. I am currently working on a Thomas Kinkade piece for my step-dad and I have been working on it off and on for about 4 years, but am determined to finish it by spring. It has taken forever because it has no white space in it. Once I finish that one, I will start working on a wolf for my son. My goal this year is to cross stitch more and get a few done...we'll see :)

Have a Blessed day!

Hi, I am Gloria! I have been on SparkPeople before but it has been a few years...time to get down and get serious about healthy eating and exercise! I love to cross stitch and used to go to cross stitch shows, but over the past few years it seems like all I do is work and I don't get enough time for stitching.

Hello, when I found this group, I knew I was home. I have been stitching since I was about 7 and I have finished and unfinished projects all around my house. I live in Iowa and I work full time, full time mom and wife and go to school part time. I don't have much time to work on what I really want to do, but when I have those few moments, I am in heaven on earth.

Hello everyone! I live in New Brunswick, Canada. Cross stitching has become my new hobby. Great to do on those long winter nights. I have a few projects on the go. Would like to get two of them done for Christmas. I am no expert just enjoy what I do. Happy to have found this forum. I know I can learn a lot from all of you. Looks like a fun forum!

I'm adding you, too! I'm doing a Paula Vaughan design called Stolen Moments. Her designs are very much "country" looking, quilts, front porch scenes, that kind of thing, which I love! I'm amazed at the projects you guys are doing. They are beautiful works!

How come I never saw this team? And I certainly looked, cross-stitching being a serious hobby for me!
I've been stitching for almost 30 years, mostly framed pictures, but other projects as well. Currently I'm working on HAED's Faery Tales - almost finished page 1 of 40-something :-)
So happy to be able to combine sparking with cross-stitching, and looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi Oldieslover - my Fairy Moon progress is on Facebook, but when I finish it I will try an add a pic to my Sparkspage so you can see it. It is on a wonderful hand-dyed fabric. Yes I can imagine the PV design - I am sure it will look wonderful when it is completed. Lisa

Loubie, Thank you for the reply. I looked up the Fairy Moon that you're working on and it's absolutely gorgeous! How close are you to finishing it?

I always assumed the color designs would be easiest for everyone. It's interesting to me that you find the B&W patterns easier. I wonder if it has anything to do with brain dominance, such as why some people are left handed and others are right handed. Curious.

The design I'm working on right now is for an email friend. "Stolen Moments". It's a quilt draped across a wicker basket, sitting next to a barbed wire fence post with a wicker hat hanging on the post. Since you're familiar with PV, you can probably picture it. :)

I've recently started this one, so it's going to be a while in finishing it. I'm glad the team has the 15 minutes a day challenge, for getting started on the days when I think I can't find the time.

Thank you again for the reply. I look forward to seeing your finished project sometime soon!

Ann

Hi Ann,

Nice to see fellow stitchers here. It is interesting that you prefer color charts as I am the other way in that I find black and white easier to follow. Although I do love the Paula Vaughan designs they are beautiful. I am currently stitching a model for Polstitches it is the Mirabilia design Fairy Moon and it is lovely.
