Grow Your Blog

Hello!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet taking part in the Grow Your Blog event hosted by Vicki at Two Bags Full 

2 Bags Full

My name is Emma, I am 27 years old and I live in West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. I live with my ever suffering partner David, and our fur baby Sheldon. We also have another another fur baby who goes by the name of Charlie, however he is quite the adventurer and so his visits home are dictated only by his stomach!


This blog was created a little under two years ago, when I decided I was fed up on an evening and weekend of just sitting in front of the TV or computer and I wanted to do something more productive with my time. So, I revisited the glorious world of craft, cross stitch in particular with a little bit of (basic!) knitting thrown in for good measure!

I think I get my crafty side from my Nana, however she is a far better knitter than I will ever be, however she does try her best with me!

Here are a few of my favourite completed pieces, however you can find them all under the tab at the top of the page "completed stitches"




I am a firm believer in "varitety is the spice of life!" so I would say I don't have a style or favourite designer, I do what feels right at the time, which may explain my ever expanding W.I.P pile!!

My dear readers also have a suffer with some ramblings from me sometimes, anything from holiday photos, weight loss, my adventure in to starting running with a few giveaways thrown in for good measure too! Oh and cat photos. Everyone needs a random cat photo from time to time!


I am due a giveaway soon, to celebrate me reaching 200 followers, so look out for that soon too!

I also have a second blog, which is for my reading. This is a new project I am working on which you can find here.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog and I would love to hear from you in the comments below! Thank you for taking the time to visit!

  24. I cross-stitched for many, many years, but now crochet has taken over as it is easier to throw in a purse and carry along wherever I may go. Now when I cross-stitch, it's mostly small projects, and I might even combine the two. I tried knitting but just could not get the hang of it at all. It will definitely take a while to get through all the participants in the party. Best wishes, Tammy

  30. Hello fellow cat and craft lover! Yes, some of us are still slowly roaming the GYB lists (I tend to do lists backwards... personal foible). I no longer stitch but LOVE admiring the work of others, so I'm now following via Bloglovin and GFC. Look forward to more posts, Emma :)

  33. Reviewing being a newbie blogger I missed some minor details like making comments... But Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party entries are 600 bloggers. My reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio 24 hours left to go now I just review at much as I can. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
