Anabella's Blog


Whew! I didn’t think I would ever get the time to sit down and write this first blog post for Anabella’s!  The holidays, although very different this year, kept me on my toes.  We also moved this past weekend so it’s been a bit nutsy around here!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post and for choosing Anabella’s for your cross stitch, quilting and needlework needs.  My name is Elayne and I’m the owner of Anabella’s.  I’ve been cross stitching since I was 12 and let’s just say I’ve had a WIP for decades!  I truly love to stitch. It relaxes me and keeps my hands busy so I don’t snack.  I also love to quilt, crochet, garden, decorate and do all sorts of diy crafts.

I have 4 beautiful adult children, three of whom are adopted, and one who is my daughter-in-law,but who I love like my own. I also have a two year old grandson, and a new grandbaby on the way. My husband Terry is my best friend and an avid golfer. He is also my biggest cheerleader.  We have two Yorkies, a quaker parrot, and our oldest daughter’s cat.  The cat was supposed to stay for the weekend and here we are 8 years later. Ugh.

So, this blog will be about Anabella’s, but it will also give you a peek into my life and all of the things I love to do and want to share with all of you. I also record a Flosstube video each week on Wednesday’s which you can find on my YouTube channel here.

I will be adding Facebook Live to my weekly list of things to do so be sure to join our awesome Facebook Group.

 You probably follow a lot of bloggers, so tell me what you’d like to read about each week. Send me an email to [email protected]

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stitching!


P.S. Here are some random new items that arrived in the shop this week. Which ones are your favorites?
