All about me

My name is Vicki and I am a Stitchaholic! image

thats probably all anyone needs to know , right? but in case you want a little more background here it is....

I am 55 years old , married to dh Dan for 32 years and have 3 grown sons and as a reward for raising 3 boys , I now have 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson image My oldest son Andrew is 31 and working his PhD in Mathematics in Ontario, after getting his Masters in Math earlier this year. my middle son Jordan 29 is an electronics technician in Alberta. He and his wife Kassia have a 3 year old daughter named Daphne and 2 yo Justin. My youngest son Patrick is 25 and is a Lieutenant in the Canadian Forces posted to Manitoba. he holds a degree in Civil Engineering from the Royal Military College of Canada .He and his wife Rejeana have a 3 yo  daughter named Venessa and Ainsley who was just born aug 17th 2010.

I am a huge dog lover , yet have a cat! go figure! Her name is Roxy and she is a fat cat, weighing in at 16 pounds. I know there are a lot of bigger cats out there but trust me she is packing too many pounds and is now on prescription diet food! so we will see how that works , the lite cat food did not do much for her waistline!
(not working real well , as she still weighs about 16 pounds)

I used to be a big knitter but have a thing like carpal tunnel only it affects my thumbs and is very painful to hold knitting needles, but luckily about 4 years before this happened I had taken up cross stitching.
I would say and I think everyone who knows me well would agree , cross stitching is an obsession with me . Well look who I'm telling, If you're reading this you may have it too! image I also do a bit of scrapbooking, sewing and quilting.

I like a wide variety of cross stitch designers , everything from samplers to flowers, animals to scenery!
I've dropped my rotation again and have been working mostly one at a time, recently doing an animal alphabet series for a quilt for the newest grandbaby.  after i get her birth sampler done i may work on something not baby related for awhile!

    i was just thinking as i typed in the name for my blog, that perhaps it should be "Ramblings of a confused stitchaholic"
    and I think ramblings is probably a very apt word to have in the title as well because I tend to get confused, forget things and often tell the same people the same things over and over and over again!! I can tell by the glazed look in their eyes when they say "for crying out loud you told me this 10 minutes ago and you told me yesterday...
