Grow Your Blog


I joined this Grow Your Blog hosted by Vicki at http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.co.uk/ last year and have now 252 followers of my blog. What a wonderful way to find new friends near and far. Stitching friends as well as other crafters are the best. They share their lives with us and encourage our stitching and comfort us when needed. Looking forward to finding new friends and renewing friendships with those already here.
My name is Joyce C Frank and have just had a birthday, turning 74. I live in Southeast Texas, 30 miles Southwest of Houston, Texas. I was born in Texas and  have lived here most of my life. A few years although spent in Reading, Pa. and Panama City, Fl. My new year resolution this year was one word; Best. I plan to try hard to be the best in everything I do this year and years to come.
I am a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and cousin to some of the best people in the world. I am single and still work as a tax preparer and accounting 4 to 5 days a week. My stitching is my way to relax and try to stitch some each day. I have a rotation I follow and have found this works for me. I completed 33 projects in 2013 and hope to finish a couple of big pieces this year. I belong to several online stitchery yahoo groups which are wonderful. There are great support groups for your stitching, encouraging you to stitch and craft outside of your comfort zone. I am also part of several blogs that showcase our stitching. Come join us.
My daughter, Deanna, is a single parent and has done a wonderful job raising my two great grandkids, Christopher, 19 and Anna, 14, this coming Thursday. Christopher is in Fire Academy, choosing becoming a fireman his career. Anna is in the 8th grade and has become a great little cowgirl. She is competing in rodeos and is also in Theater Arts, performing in plays. Being a Grandmother is wonderful.
I will also have a give a way on Feb. 15 and will choose the winner from your comments.
 I am now on my way to check out a few of your blogs.
Happy stitching and crafting or whatever life throws your way.

Enjoyed stopping by another Texan's blog, but a little north of you. Have to admit that my favorite craft is my photography. Happy partying and love your word for the year. Something that I hope to do also... be the best that I can be in all that I do. Big hugs to you
