About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

My simple stitcher is only

2 & half, he has been working on his piece for a year, it's incredible to watch his passion & patients with cross-stitching / embroidery ! He has learned tension on the thread, colors, needles, licking the thread to thread it in the needle hole tonight he learned to look at the small holes in his 14 ct Aida. I asked him what his picture was and he said a STAR. He is my star.


  1. That is so great that you are teaching him needlework at such a young age! I wish someone would have taught me.

    I'm intrigued by your header photo. Is that painted building at your house? Did you paint it yourself? I LOVE IT!!

  2. Well done to him and you! I think it's great to introduce arts and crafts early (I used to teach knitting and embroidery to 5-8yr olds). I think it's very sad so many people grow up thinking they're not creative when really they've just never had the chance to learn :)

    1. Thank you, all my sons are crafty, we were always doing something, I never had money but we did crafts ..... Now my grandkids, I try to do something even with the babies.. dexter here, I love to watch how he studies putting the needle in the hole, his favorite is licking the thread to re thread the needle..
