"Ok, you say, "That's fine but I'm not creative!" I will let you in on a little secret. You don't have to be creative. If you can follow simple instructions, you can enjoy the rewards of stitching.

For beginning stitchers if recommend starting with a small design that can be completed in a short period of time. This way you won't become overwhelmed and give up on your project. This is especially important for a child who is learning to do counted cross stitch. There are numerous books available to teach novice stitchers the art. This site contains many such patterns that are suitable for a beginner.

My Heading Pictures

Daffodil Hill ~ Courtesy of Lauren R. Linehan at www.krosselkreek.com. The location is a small family farm in the Sierra Foothills called Daffodil Hill. The history is the farmer's wife loved daffodils and planted thousands of bulbs around the farm. The parents have since passed on and the children now run the farm. In the spring the bulbs bloom and they open up for visitors. The nearest town is Volcano, CA. Worth a visit if you ever get the chance.



Hiram Burl Imus ~ In the center of my header is a photo of my grandfather who passed away in 1940, before I was born. My father gave me the original photo of Grandpa sitting on his mule which is one of my prized possessions. My grandfather was a cattle rancher in northern Arizona as was his father before him. My father carried on the tradition when he left Nevada in 1965 and moved onto a ranch he purchased in British Columbia, Canada. Growing up I remember that, no matter how small a piece of land Dad had, he always had livestock on it even during the years he made his living as a general building contractor.

Below is a photo of the ranch house, barn/workshop, other buildings and corrals on Dad's ranch in Canada taken around spring breakup time when the winter snow was melting. Francois Lake is seen in the background with the hills on the other side of the lake seen below the skyline.
