Guest Blogger: Robin Givens

Hi Everyone!

This is my first EVER blog & I was SO excited and honored when Megan & Anna asked me if I would be a guest blogger for PFOS!!!!
I suppose I should start by introducing myself, I'm Robin Givens, aka "the cabinet lady." I started my own company, Kitchens Perfected, the same time that Megan & Anna were becoming the new owners of PFOS, so I feel a special kinship with them. This kinship also, unfortunately for them, results in frequent bombardment of my "brilliant ideas!" (Don't y'all think it would be fun to have a shop dog, or cat named STITCH!?!?!!?)
I started stitching in March of 2008. I was a cross-stitcher and wandered into PFOS for a skein of DMC 444. Well..... that was the end of that! I took a beginner class with Rhea, very similar to the one coming up, so if you've been thinking about it....DO IT! I've been stitching & collecting ever since! It's amazing how quickly a stash can build up! I now have a closet devoted to my needlepoint. HEY! No judging! It's not a WALK-IN closet! :D
I'm also the PROUD mom to 2 dogs, Hilary-Jean & Hartley Sue and 2 cats, Hoch & Henry. There is a part of them stitched into every piece I do & I'm sure they will be incorporated into my blog spots!
Here are a couple of my favorite pieces I've finished stitching. There are a lot more that I've started and I will share my progress with you! This stocking is one of those pieces. This one has a deadline, so if you see me in the shop, be sure to ask how it's coming! I'll keep y'all posted!!!!
Happy Stitching!
