My name's Donna.... and I'm a stitchaholic!

I have been cross-stitching since I was about 14, when I got brought a kit as a Christmas Present.  I didn't have a clue what I was suppposed to do, no one in the family stitched, so I got the instructions out read them from cover to cover and got on with it... that's how it all started!

I stopped and started over the years, but it wasn't until I was in my late Twenties when I really got into it big time, and found out you didnt have to just have kits... there was Stash to collect :-)

I met my partner, Nick, 7 years ago.  We live in Derbyshire with our black Labrador Hari who is about 9 years old and a rescue dog.  We also have 2 chinchillas's Whisper & Shadow. 

We opened our business, Blue Groove Racing, in March 2008 selling and racing Radio Controlled Cars, and this progressed into me adding a stitching & crafting side to the business, Blue Groove Crafts.  As of 14th Feb 2011 we will break away from Blue Groove Racing and become Miss Donna Lamb T/A Cross Stitch Heaven.

I have a number of project's on the go at the moment, I am fairly impatient and often cannot wait to get started on something new, so I often find myself saying "I'll just do a little bit in the corner to see what it's like".... Unfortunately this usually means whatever I was stitching up until that point gets discarded for awhile!  I'm hoping by updating this website page from time to time with WIP pics It will motivate me to finish the projects.

I'm very much addicted to Heaven & Earth Design (HAED) Charts at the moment and am especially loving the Randal Spangler Dragons.  My WIP can be found on my Facebook page.

I have about 6 UFO's which I've promised myself I will finish soon!!

Thanks for reading and please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions you have for the site.
