I'm Joanna. I'm married with 3 children all under 5yrs old, 2 boys and a darling daughter.
When I do get some free time I'm addicted to needlecrafts, most especially cross stitch. I love working on large projects such as landscapes but as these are very time consuming I always have a couple of smaller works on the go.
My favourite things to sew are quilt squares for Quilts for Breast Cancer (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Quiltsforbreastcancer/) I get to use some of my smaller designs that I've always wanted to stitch but had no reason to and they go to lovely ladies who make these into lap quilts for breast cancer sufferers. As breast cancer runs in my family this is a group close to my heart.
My latest works in progress are Rainy Day from the Silhouettes series (nearly done now only a corner to do) Rambling Ted by Margaret Sherry from the Cross Stitcher magazine, this is for my husband for Fathers Day and Upsy Daisy for my daughters bedroom.
I also knit, mostly aran jumpers for family. I like applique and am collecting my children's favourite clothes they've grown out of. I'll use them to make into an appliqued bedspread as a reminder of their childhood in later years.
In fact better get back to stitching as the house is quiet and I've got some time to myself :)
