I AM WILD ABOUT CROSS STITCH!
Meet About.com’s . . .
More about Connie!
Connie G. Barwick, your Guide to Cross Stitch, has been an avid Cross Stitcher for more than thirty years. She enjoys teaching people basic stitches, designing patterns, challenging advanced stitchers with more difficult designs, and sharing tips and tricks with experienced stitchers.
Connie’s patterns are inspired by her varied interests which include reading, music, and exploring her natural surroundings. She also particularly enjoys designing and stitching geometric patterns. Some of the free charts at About.com Cross Stitch are also based on questions or suggestions from About.com Cross Stitch members.
When Connie was eight, she completed her first Stamped Cross Stitch design. She transitioned to Counted Cross Stitch a few years later and has been hooked since. She developed her knowledge of Cross Stitch with help from other stitchers, by reading books and magazines, and by trying out new techniques. She continues to expand her knowledge by reading current Cross Stitch publications and trying out new products and techniques.
Over the years, I have probably made every Cross Stitch mistake possible, but I used those learning experiences to improve my stitching. I love teaching beginning stitchers and discussing stitching techniques with experienced stitchers.
I really enjoy designing patterns, especially abstract geometrics and samplers. Some of my favorite designs are based on quilt blocks.
No matter where I have lived or what type of work I have done, Cross Stitch has been a constant companion. I’ve stitched between classes, in ICU waiting rooms, on my lunch hour – I take a project with me wherever I go. I even dream about Cross Stitch!
Here a few samples of Connie’s work . . .

Over the past year he has been directing a project that provides training in the TM technique for homeless men participating in a one-year “re-entry” program.
While in Washington DC he helped direct a $1.2M research study of the effects Transcendental Meditation practice on student brain development, health and academic performance at American University.

Mentoring & Motivation
About David . . .
David Cottrell has created a legacy of leadership excellence. During his three decades of leadership experience in corporate America, David has lived the obstacles, frustrations and issues today’s leaders face. The best-selling business author of 25 highly acclaimed books, David has been a featured expert on public television and has shared his leadership philosophy and lessons with more than 250,000 managers and leaders worldwide. He is currently CEO and President of CornerStone Leadership Institute, one of the nation’s largest publishers of management and leadership resources.
Awards and Unprecedented Achievement
David has earned awards and achieved levels that continue to stand out as remarkable. Armed with a degree in Marketing from the University of Arkansas, he was one of the youngest sales managers in the history of Xerox Corporation. After a decade with Xerox, David joined FedEx where he was elected multiple times to the President’s Club. To this day, David is the only person to have been chosen District Manager of the Year for two consecutive years. David’s tremendous leadership achievements at Xerox and FedEx were the result of his deep belief that he could expect the best from people by investing in them.
|Everyone who wants a fulfilling career needs a mentor — someone who has seen it all before, someone who can share hard-won experiences and teach valuable lessons.In this expanded and enhanced version of his best-selling book, Monday Morning Leadership, David Cottrell packs all of the wisdom of his wide-ranging business experience into this inspirational story. Cottrell introduces us to Jeff, a successful corporate manager who has hit a major wall. Jeff has been leading his team, quarter after quarter, to great sales and better profits for several years — until now. The tricks that used to work wonders have lost their magic; Jeff is in a slump and is at a loss to find his way out of it.
Overworked, stressed, and feeling that his personal and professional lives are at risk, Jeff reaches out to the father of a college buddy, a retired and tremendously accomplished former executive named Tony. Tony and Jeff agree to meet every Monday for ten weeks to work through Jeff’s problems and get his career back on track.
In the course of these intimate sessions, Jeff discovers the secrets of real leadership: “Until I accept total responsibility — no matter what — I will not be able to put plans in place to accomplish my goals.” And, “My success is the result of making better choices and recovering quickly from poor choices.”
Tony leads Jeff through tough lessons in how to manage his people, how to manage his own time, how to manage his superiors, and how to escape from “management land.” Most of all, Jeff learns that his success is intimately bound with the success of his people and that tolerating lackluster performance in himself and others on the team only leads to discontent from his most prized and productive employees.
Through Jeff’s mentoring sessions, the reader meets a character of integrity who dispenses homespun but effective wisdom. Spend time with Tony and Jeff at their Monday morning meetings, and you will find yourself on the road to becoming a better leader and being more successful at work.
