Greetings from South Africa

Hello Margaret Sherry Lovers.

My name is Debbie and as I am new to the blog, I would like to introduce myself.

I live in Durban, South Africa. I have been married for 13 years and have two sweet little girls, Erin Hope (5) and Ella Grace (2). I am a teacher-librarian and work at an all-girls Catholic School. I love books, reading, stitching and going to the movies, as well as spending time with my family and friends.

I have recently started cross stitching again, after a break of many years. I am slowly building my collection of patterns and threads. At this stage I have only done two small Margaret Sherry designs but I hope to do many more in the future. I love looking at the beautiful Margaret Sherry designs that so many of you have made.

I am looking forward to taking part in my first exchange this Christmas. And I want to learn more about the Stitch-A-Longs too. I hope to make many new friends from all over the world. Thank you to Nia for allowing me to be part of this wonderful community.

Happy stitching!
