Its Party Day!

Whohoo... today is the big day for the PARTY!

What party you ask...why the
of course!

So I would like to take a minute to thank all the new visitors for taking the time to stop by :)

My name is Faith and I live in the Chicago area.  My interests include crafts, reading, spending time with my family, surfing the internet and reading blogs. :)

I LOVE all crafts but my passion is COUNTED CROSS STITCH.  I love stitching away with a needle and thread and seeing a picture come to life on a blank piece of material. I also "dabble" in other crafts and at the moment I am TRYING to teach myself how to sew

I also love spending time with my family - which includes my two adult children and my handsome grandson...we all live together along with our three dogs; Pest, Bowser and Scrappy and our red foot tortoise, Leonardo

I also enjoy reading but lately that has been neglected but I keep telling myself...I will start reading again soon!  I am on Goodreads if you would like to check me out there.

Feel free to look around...hope you find something that interests you... 

Thanks for coming to the party and checking me out ~ hope you become a follower so you can come see me again...

In the meantime, leave me a comment so I know you were here and I will come by and check you out too!

Hi Faith! Loved your entry for the Blog Party. Like you, I have let my reading slip aside because I'm always stitching. I'm also trying to learn how to sew. At least I can finish off my ornaments now.

Enjoyed reading about your life.

Hi Faith! I am so envious of your stitching - I don't have the patience for cross stitch, though I think it is beautiful. Have you tried audio books? I am hooked on them now, and it's great to be able to craft and "read" at the same time ;)
I've just sent you a friend request on Goodreads too, I love being able to trade reccomendations etc.
Happy GYB party! xxx

Hi Faith,
I'm glad you stopped by and paid me a visit at A Humble Creation so I could come say hi! I also enjoy cross stitch although I don't do as much as I used to because I like projects I can finish faster :)
I look forward to seeing more of your work and following along in your sewing process!
