Color – Color – Color…

For me, there’s nothing like color to get my creative juices flowing.  It always has. I grew up in a church filled with gorgeous stained glass windows surrounding you.  They are filled with all kinds of color and form, and told of all the stories of the Bible, and were filled with Christian symbolism.  Depending […]

2013… A year of rebirth

Greetings from the colorful world of blackwork! I am pleased to announce that after several years of inactivity, Stitch’inspiration will be coming alive again! Where have I been?

… just a box…

On this rainy day in Virginia, I thought I’d take a moment to share what Jim and I did this past weekend. Ever hear of Operation Christmas Child?  It brings joy and love to millions of children in need every year through a simple shoebox packed with toys and candy.  Our church has taken part […]

Have you heard about the “puppy cam” from San Francisco? I have to say, this live stream is keeping me from my work, housework, designing, everything… It’s become a sad-sad addiction. I always did want to video tape Jack and Maggy when they were alone – but we just never did it. Those two kids […]

Life Taking Over

Well, well, well… it’s been another quiet break for you all from my blogging, but I’m back! As seems to occur in my life, “life happened”, and I just wasn’t able to get everything done, including with keeping you up-to-date with all that was going on. Stitchin’spiration, as I’ve said many times, is really a […]

Vacation Catch-up

Well, as you probably guessed, we did get back in one piece from vacation. Well, at least most of my body did… Last day we were in Memphis, I decided it had been too long since I turned my ankle, so I stepped off the curb, and proceeded to twist the heck out of my […]
