Nordic Needle is looking for you!!!

Ever wanted to share your stitching? Be recognized for your beautiful artwork/talent.
Nordic Needle has posted this in their newsletter:

Stitchers are shy....or so they seem to be when it comes to sharing their stitching stories. I have sent out many questionnaires but have no one to feature this week! So, if you want these Stitching Stories to continue, please help me out by letting me feature YOU. Just write to me and ask for the Featured Stitcher questionnaire. Thank you! If you have sent me your completed questionnaire and haven't been featured, then something went wrong and it went missing so please re-send it to me so I can feature you!

I have been featured in their newsletter and loved the recognition that came from it. Here is my recognition!

I know graduation is not until Thursday but I have to do this now as I will be a mess by that day.
Every time I think about my baby girl graduating and how fast it seems she has grown up.

She went from this....

I am so proud of her. She has worked hard to get this far. She also has been awarded a scholarship to Grand Canyon University although she is hoping they will hold on to that for her as she wants to do a few years at Phoenix College first. She is wanting to study dentistry.

Congratulations baby I love you and am so very proud of you!!!
Here are some senior pics of her.

To this....

On the Blog hop bandwagon.

Do you use a stand when you stitch? If so, tell us about it and share pictures if you’ve got them. If not, would you like to try using a stand? Do you have any tips or tricks around using a stand versus not using a stand?

With me it depends on the project.
I have my RMC (Rocky Mountain Christmas) on a stand as well as a SAL Hardanger piece.
Some of my projects are in q-snaps, scroll rods, on other occassions a hoop or even nothing at all is used.  Here is a pic of the desk in my craft room with two of my projects within view.
(No this area is not this clean all the time.... you should see it as it is today. YIKES!)

I decided to join the STITCHINGTHENIGHTAWAY blog hop.
