Keeping You in Stitches

The challenge at Sassy Cheryl's this week, set by our Miz Sassy Jeni, (aka Flip Flop) is about stitches, real or faux.

This is one of Sassy Cheryl's newest images that she created at my request (actually I bugged her a lot!!), and I love it! I belong to a few knitting groups and a local knitting guild and this image is perfect to wish another knitter a happy birthday, or to say thanks for help with a knitting project.

This little gal is just stitching away and she's about the age that I was when I started knitting... believe me...it's never too early and never too late to learn this wonderful and very relaxing hobby. Did you know that you can solve all the problems of the world while you're knitting?  Well, that's not exactly true.. but you can forget a lot about all of the trouble life hands out while keeping those needles moving.



Our group of knitters just happen to love a good cocktail or a glass of wine.. so we have a special mantra amongst us.. "knitters don't let knitters knit drunk".. wouldn't that be a great sentiment the next time I have to make a card for someone in my group?? (I am SOOO bad!!)

I do hope that you will join us at Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week with this fun challenge. And, I hope that you have a terrific week. Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. Be safe in all you do.

Your coloring is gorgeous, sweet pea, and I love your clean & simple design! That ribbon is perfect...and I love the sentiment! hehehe!
