Beauport Stitches

a crafty port of call

Beach at sunset, taken by my husband, Bob.

I live in the historic sea side town of Gloucester, MA.  The name Beauport Stitches is inspired by one of my favorite beaches there, Good Harbor.  I spent many happy childhood summer days enjoying the surf and sand on Good Harbor Beach  with my family and many summer night moonlit walks while I was dating my husband.

Hand me a hook and a skein of yarn and I’m a happy hooker! I can’t just sit still – I need to be doing something, creating something, reading something or in the kitchen making a mess attempting to cook something.

I learned how to crochet from my Nana Barnes  and my mother helped me with knitting.

Any sewing skills I have, I picked up in my 6th through 8th grade Home Ec. classes.

I like to craft the usual and the unusual. As the proprietor of Beauport Stitches I fully enjoy the journey of the stitch. From the idea then to the medium used and the progress with all the successes and froggings and rip outs! When one stitch journey is over I can’t wait for another to begin.

My “to do” list for crafts is now longer than my time left on earth, I’m sure! BUT…..I’m going to try to do it all anyways!

What are your crafting memories?  Who taught you and what do you enjoy?

Share your crafting journey with me.

    Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog so that I could find your blog. My passion is cross stitch, but I also knit, crochet a little, sew, scrapbook and make hand made cards. My step-mom taught me to crochet when I was 13. My husband bought me knitting lessons at a local knitting shop about 28 years ago and I can’t imagine not knowing how to do either one of them. My hands need to keep busy also, so I am always doing something. I look forward to visiting your blog often to see what you have been up to :)
