Six of my original paintings are created into Cross Stitch Designs The " Twilight Balloon Flight is a favourite with crafters.
All patterns shown are either hand stitched models or in virtual stitch form.
You can find them on this web site:
The creator of all the beautiful paterns is Jodi Watson, owner of GOLDEN HOOP.
The Golden Hoop was created in May of 2003! What started out as a hobby turned into a passion!
The Golden Hoop has contracts with many different artists to turn their beautiful artwork into cross stitch patterns for your stitching enjoyment. I use a computer program to help create the patterns and spend many hours (and sometimes not so many, depending on the pattern) working on each creation. I tweak each one until I feel it is just right for stitching. Because I use a computer program, each pattern looks very much like the original artwork. When you are finished stitching one of these patterns, you will be very proud of your own masterpiece!
I design my own original ideas as well...mostly geometric, or quilt like patterns...I also design most of my freebies freehand too...
I hope you will enjoy browsing and shopping at
The Golden Hoop!

Louie and I went to Birch Bay for 5 days a couple of weeks ago. His daughter Kathleen has a time share Condo there and nobody was using it , so she asked us if we wanted to go .I have never been there before,it reminds me a little of White Rock, but smaller and not quite as busy.
The weather was very good.We had a nice relaxing time.Louie neaded to get away from working so hard in the yard and I neaded to get away from house work and cooking.
We went for walks along the beach ,had a swim in the pool and a dip in the hot tub,played horseshoe and washers game on the lawn, went to dinner a couple of times.And we did some shopping at the new Birch Bay Mall .They had some realy good deals.
