My name is Catherine and I live in Annandale Mn. I have been married 32 years. I started cross stitching in 1971. I love the blackbird designs and most samplers. I have a christmas tree with nothing but cross stitched ornaments. we have a cat Vern and a dog Peanut. I am so new to this blogging and somewhat bewildered. I am 58 and all of this is so different from sending a letter or phone call. I look forward to hearing from you.
