The hobby of genealogy has some interesting quips and quotes. I saw this one recently, and thought it would be a good introduction to show you another hobby that I dearly enjoy - cross stitching! But not just any little design, I specifically have a passion for historical reproduction samplers. If you have ever been to Colonial Williamsburg, you have seen examples of the types of designs that interest me most.
Genealogy: A haystack full of needles. It's the threads I need!
This weekend I am joining my friends from Indiana Hoosier Stitchers for a stitching retreat at Camp Rivervale in Mitchell, Indiana. Leaving all the genealogy at home, (well, most of it) while I put a few more stitches in DUTCH BEAUTY, eat chocolate, and catch up on some sleep (okay, maybe not).
