Post for Cindy M

Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this great group, I see lots of friends listed!  My name is Cindy, I live in Virginia, west of DC in Winchester.  I'm married, with 3 kids~2 daughters ages 25 & 22, and a son age 15, along with a dog and 4 cats.

I graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Clothing, Textiles, and Related Arts.  Unfortunately, I was never fortunate enough to use my degree and love of needles and threads professionally, but I spend every spare moment involved in some form of needle art, whether it be sewing, knitting, or cross stitch.

I'm ashamed to say, I only own 2 Scarlet Letter charts, one of them being one that was just passed along to me recently by a dear stitching friend who was finished with it.  Although there are lots of others in my wish list...

The 2 charts I have are Hannah Trecothick 1738, and And All Was For an Appil.  I plan to start with Hannah, she is kitted and ready to roll.  I won't start until after the new year, though, because I have several projects that I plan to have done by midnight Dec 31!

Looking forward to reading the posts, getting to know everyone, and seeing what everyone is working on!

Welcome Cindy and thank you for participating.

When I read the name Hannah Trecothick I was excited. Trecothick is a good Cornish name and I very much want to stitch a Cornish sampler.

Alas she is not a Cornish but is stunning and will be a beautiful one to watch being stitched.

Hi Cindy!

We all have to start somewhere. :-D

I found an image of Hannah Trecothick 1738 in an older SL catalog. I look forward to seeing your work in person when you bring her to a LSG meeting and the blog.
