Wow, I am creating my first blog! Wish me luck! I am posting a cross stitch I recently made for a contest entry from Blackbird Designs. It was really fun to create and personalize. I have never stitched my actual name on a design until now. The significance of number 143 I stitched after my name simply means "I Love You". It was my salutation on love letters to my boyfriend when I was young. It was a fun code that only the two of us knew. The word I has one letter, love four letters and you three letters.
