What's In A Name?

I have an old blog that I kept for many years, The Preppy Pink and Green Puppy. I still post from time to time but thought I'd start a new, needlepoint only blog to keep up with all my stitching sisters.

You may be asking yourself, what exactly is a stitching GRITS.  Well, most people know grits as the corn-based breakfast cereal.  Southerns really know what grits are- Girls Raised In The South.  But there is a third meaning.  Girls Really In To Shooting.  And that's me!  The GRITS are a group  my shooting instructor started a few years ago to get women interested in the shooting sports, particularly shotguns.  My GRITS friends love that I stitch and when we're away shooting together I always have a canvas that I'm working on.

This is me, stitching a belt while trapping at a tournament last fall.  I had broken my wrist (was in car accident) so I couldn't shoot which is why I was trapping. It was a slow day so I was able to get some stitching time in between shooters.

I promise to post more about stitching than shooting.
