So first things first, let's deal with the name, my nom de plume - Mrs Milkybar Kid. Contrary to what some people may think, I do not have a penchant for a certain well known white chocolate confection by Nestle.
However, my husband as a child (and I've known him since I was 5) was the spiting image of the Milkybar Kid as seen in the iconic TV commercials over the years. To be fair he still has blonde hair, blue eyes and glasses - but is now a much chunkier version! So by virtue of the fact that I have been married to him for the past 15 years, that makes me Mrs Milkybar Kid in my book.
I've started this blog not only to share my cross stitching and other counted threadwork, but to share my new adventures in needlework. I've always been really interested in embroidery in all its various forms, but now I've finally plucked up the courage to have a go myself. I have a terrible habit of cyber stalking Royal School of Needlework graduates and students - their work is exquisite and such an inspiration (can you imagine going to uni in a palace for goodness sake?!). I want to try new techniques and this time my normal motto of "If at first you don't succeed, destroy any evidence you ever tried" will not apply.
I will aim to update my blog at least once a week with my various stitching exploits and will be happy to have you join me.
