my progress

Hello Ladies,

well since we are introducing ourselves....I am Marj, 40 and single..never married , no kids. I started stitching after I finished University in 1990 as a hobby, I didnt do very much until my sister got engaged and I decided to do TW Wedding Sampler for her. I went on the TWBB and met a whole group of local ladies and it took off from there.

Fairy Idyll was my first attempt on linen and has been a work in progress for many years as other projects have come along. Both my sisters are married, so two wedding samplers for them, birth announcement for my niece and various other smaller projects.

I also knit and scrapbook as well.

I took a snow day yesterday, well work at home day. We got 30cm of snow in my neck of the woods (oshawa, ontario, canada) from saturday night through to sunday night and the snow plow never came to my street until after 6am monday morning. So I got up at 5am and saw the street hadnt been plowed and went back to bed.....

I did do quite a bit on Fairy Idyll with being snowed in on sunday....although I did spend a few hours shovelling out.


  1. Welcome Marg. We love to have you as part of the group. Good work on Fairy Idyll. I have a feeling that you will finish it this time.

  2. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself. I hope we will be able to inspire each other.

  3. Fairy Idyll was one of my first "big" designs. I still love her - yours looks great.

  4. Hey Girl welcome aboard. Fairy Idyll is soooo pretty.
