Hi there!

Just found your blog through another blogger and went through some of your older posts. You wouldn't believe how much you/I have in common. I have two sons, oldest just turned 19, like yours and I also have a beagle doggie, only he's male.
I love to cr. stitch too and LOVE anything Americana!! I LOVE all your Americana cr. stitch pieces, as well as all your others and your finishing is wonderful!
Come by sometime and say hi!
