Grow your blog! / Fais pousser ton blog

Hi,

My name is Anojaa. I follow my husband's work adventures around the world (ok, only three places so far, but that's enormous for a girl not very much used to travel). I was born in Sri Lanka and grew up in France, which has become my 'home'. I started blogging in 2011 because it was then that I married my husband and leaving home was quite terrifying. I brought with me my books and my stitching. But cross stitching was the subject I choose to blog about because it creates wonderful meetings with others cross sitchers, something I always missed as I am almost the only cross stitcher in my circle. Unfortunately, my blogging spree did not last more than year due to life callings (study, moving out, etc).
But in october last year, I thought I could join the fun again. And here I am, trying to post updates every other week.
I have a lot to say about cross stitching. I was taught cross stitching at school when I was 10. It was a revelation. I was so passionate that I finished the sampler we were working on before anyone else in my class, and started stitching other stuff. Throughout the years, the mojo went and came back. I discovered new technics, new ways of stitching. I even at one point designed few models. I started blogging when I was stitching a lot of stuff alternatively. Right now, I have come back to what has always been my motto: one or at most two at a time. It works for me, as I am really impatient to see the work finished.  I am working at the moment on a model designed by Aimee Stewart, charted by HAED. I have been working on it for the past months. It is quite a demanding project and one of the most time consuming. Hope you will share the journey with me.

Thanks for stopping by. And thanks to Vicki for organizing this event. I am off to meet new friends!
See you soon.


Bonjour,

Je m'appelle Anojaa. Je suis mon mari dans ses emplois autour du monde (d'accord, juste trois endroits pour le moment, mais c'est beaucoup pour quelqu'un qui voyageait très rarement). Je suis née au Sri Lanka et j'ai grandi en France, qui est devenu mon chez moi. J'ai commence a bloguer en 2011, car c'est a ce moment que suite a mon mariage, le fait de quitter mon pays m'apparaissait terrifiant. J'ai emporte avec moi mes livres et ma broderie. Mais c'est sur le point de croix que j'ai décidé de consacrer un blog car il me permettait de rencontrer d'autres amoureux du point de croix. Malheureusement, mon désir de bloguer a vécu juste un an, au delà duquel la vie a repris ses droits (études, déménagement, etc.).
En octobre, l'an dernier, je me suis dit que je pourrais me remettre a bloguer de nouveau. Et me voici, désormais, tentant d’écrire un article tous les 15 jours.
Je pourrais parler longtemps de point de croix (ce qui tout compte fait est le but de ce blog). J'ai appris a broder a 10 ans. Ce fut une révélation. Je finis rapidement l'abécédaire qui était notre ouvrage a l’époque et me mis a broder d'autres choses. Depuis, l'envie de broder s'en va et puis revient. J'ai découvert de nouvelles techniques. J'ai même crée mes propres grilles. J'ai commence mon blog quand je brodais plusieurs projets a la fois. Maintenant, je suis revenue a ce qui a toujours été ma devise favorite: un projet, voire deux grand max, a la fois. Cela me convient car je suis toujours impatiente de voir l'ouvrage achevé. Je travaille en ce moment sur un modèle d’Aimée Stewart, mis en grille par HAED. Je l'ai commence il y a quelques mois. C'est un projet ambitieux qui demande beaucoup de mon temps. J’espère que vous m'accompagnerez dans cette aventure.
Merci de me lire. Et un grand merci a Vicki qui organise cet événement. Je m'en vais de ce pas rencontrer de nouveaux amis.
A bientôt

  7. I love to cross stitch too, but over the past couple of years I have downsized to only using it on my crazy quilt projects. I don't have space for large things anymore. Thank you so much for having us over for a visit!
