Can't Wait To Get Started!

Hi, I'm Kristen and I blog at Meadowbrook.  I live in Minnesota, USA, and right now it is freezing (-25 degrees Fahrenheit)!  I spend a lot of the winter months indoors trying to stay warm stitching.  My mother taught me to embroider when I was 5 years old and I've loved it ever since.  I basically love thread, fabric, and yarn.  I'm so excited to get started on this year's project and have printed off the free pattern for this month.  I'm hoping to have it finished sometime this week.
