The game board designs are cool. I have one I'm working on by The Primitive Needle, called "Hare Game Board" Lisa Roswell. (www.Theprimitiveneedlehome.com)A suggestion for you on the patterns that have stitches that are difficult for you. Instead of throwing them away, see if you're local needlework store has a discount or give-away bin that you could donate them to. Also, senior centers are often places where you could give them to also.Thanks for your 'bio' and the pictures of your needlework!Cindy J.
I enjoyed seeing your projects, they are beautiful! It's fun to have a theme. I, too, like to be organized. Using clip-on magnifiers over my bifocals AND fabric other than Aida has helped me conquer the 1/4 and 3/4 stitches. Keep on stitchin'!!Kathy A.
Thanks for sharing! A game-themed room -- how cool!

Dot's work is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this!
Dot is my best friend, I have known her for at least 15 years, and she does beautiful work. I treasure all the CXS I have rec'd from her. She is the one who got me started on CXS. But as she said, not enough places to pick up supplies. Glad you put her items on you website.Her 2nd best friend. Carol
