Magic of Stories is about stories of all kinds, they are around us every day in everything we do. So I'm sharing with you some stories of my own that are not book related. I went to a friend's house recently and she had some beautiful pictures on the wall. On closer inspection they were… Continue reading A Summer House and A Bee
In honour of this day here is a cross stitch picture I did back in 2003. I really loved stitching this one. I remember taking it on holiday to Anglesey and would sit in the lounge of the B&B stitching. Lots of people took an interest in what I was doing, and it was nice… Continue reading International Tiger Day!
This didn't get posted on the day, so don't suppose it matters. I love craft particularly cross stitching. I threaded my needle a few days ago to start a new project from Cross Stitcher magazine. It is a bee, as you can see below, and it is a little further along now. If you want… Continue reading National Thread A Needle Day

I've had some great disasters in the past and still have half a baby's cardigan in my drawer from an 'easy'… Continue reading Knitted Hats

If you have read my first post entitled Love Quilts UK you will understand what these quilts are and why they are so extraordinary. This is the quilt, and each cross… Continue reading Love Quilts UK Number Two
by Karen J Mossman It's been a while since I stitched anything for Love Quilts and when an email dropped into my mail box recently thanking for me my contribution, I was suprised, and delighted. That was when I remembered how much I loved cross stitching for them. Love Quilts UK makes quilts for children… Continue reading Love Quilts UK
Apart from writing, I love to cross stitch and one of my favourite things to do is to stitch for Love Quilts UK. These beautiful quilts are made for British children up to the age of 19 and who are suffering from life-threatening or life-long illnesses. (There is also a Love Quilts USA Love Quilts Brazil and Love Quilts… Continue reading Love Quilts
