Needlepoint would be quite a change for you....Now I would believe something like gator wrestling!

Cool idea...the map, not needlepointing. But I bet if you DID take it up it would be unlike any needlepoint anyone has ever seen.

Very Cool/Cute Post  -  I took up cross stitching years ago to help me quit smoking and a post like this post would have been very helpful to me back then.

Roger - Ha! Ha! Ha! Save if for when (or if) I ever take up quilting!

Gary - Funny you should mention that...

Sheila - Thank you Sheila! As long as I'm breathing, I'm thinking about how to market my services.

Terri - Oh, I've been in a few black and white movies before! And, I did put in an Academy Award worthy performance the other day!

It's handy to be clever with photo editing - I love the cross stitch sign that leads right into craft shop locations.

Jill - I love that commercial!

Kristin - That tends to happen here on my blog! You guys are nuts!

Jeff - For the sanity of the needlepointing community, I think I'll stick to Real Estate my friend!

Debbie - Thank you Debbie. I hope your new hobby was instrumental in replacing your old habit.

Margaret - I'm really just a hack with this Photoshop thing. But I do have some fun with it.

Criag - I just heard on the radio yesterday that some male celebrity just took up needlepointing, I think it was Ryan Gosselin, maybe he'll stop by one of the many craft stores in your area.

Michelle - You must have gotten confused Michelle. That celebrity wasn't Ryan Gosselin.... it was me!!! But if he does stop on by, I'll be sure to give him your contact information! I'll tell him that you'll be happy to take him to one of Wellington's polo matches!

Craig - Needlepoint?!  No wonder I can't find my basket of yarn.  I love the alligator wrestling photo.  That is awesome!  By the way thank you for doing such a great job helping my client find a home in the Cary/Raleigh?apex area.  He is getting settled and raved about the great service you provided him.  Thanks again!
