What is your cross stitch weak­ness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are sup­posed to be on the Wag­on?)

I’m sup­posed to go telling my weak­ness­es, in pub­lic?

Well, I guess I’ve already exposed them, con­sid­er­ing the lists on my site. I adore “dif­fer­ent” pat­terns. If it jumps out from all the cutesy crap, I want it. Celtic knot­work is anoth­er one. I haven’t seen too many good pagan designs, so when I do, I pay atten­tion.

I love Putu­may­o’s CDs, and we have at least ten or so. I’ve yet to hear one of their com­pi­la­tions that I did­n’t enjoy.

Celtic Dreamland CDBut I real­ly, real­ly adore their Celtic col­lec­tions, and I’m a big goofy nut about lul­la­bies. I don’t know why—maybe it’s because nobody sang them to me—but I can’t get enough of them as an adult.1

With that in mind, you can bet­ter under­stand why I just went nuts over the ecard with snip­pets of three songs from Celtic Dream­land that just arrived in my email. And ooo! There are more sam­ples over here!

And hey, I like you peo­ple, so I’m shar­ing the joy with you.


1 Be warned: I do sing to babies. Any­body’s babies. I can’t resist snug­gling a sleepy baby and lul­laby­ing away.
