About Us

About Us

I'm Mary from New York's beautiful Hudson Valley.  I have been hooked on cross stitching since I took my first stitch appropriately four years ago.  I find it an extremely relaxing pastime and with the encouragement of RJ, I have progressed from a 14 count Aida stitcher to stitching with 40 count linen.

Besides my passion for cross stitiching, I enjoy hiking, paper crafts, stained glass and I am a beginner photographer.

I'm RJ from sunny Florida.  Cross stitching is my very favorite activity.  Like Mary, it brings me joy and contentment.  It is the first thing I want to do when I have any extra time.

My other interests include Gator sports, travel, card making, French Country decorating and spending lots of time at the beach.
