This week I ran across one of my bags of cross stitching supplies. Since we moved I am "finding" all sorts of things that I had forgotten about. I don't have enough time (or energy) to do much quilting through the week so I thought doing some stitching in the evenings would not only be relaxing but I wouldn't feel as if I was wasting so much time in front of the TV.
It has been quite some time since I did any cross stitch (early 90's?). I once did quite a bit of cross stitch and pulled thread work. I went surfing on the net to see what new things might be out there. Boy! Was I surprised. I wanted a new pattern to work with and I wanted it right then. I found this site and just loved her whimsical designs. I discovered that she sells her patterns for download and purchased this one.
While looking for the correct floss colors I found all these finished pieces you see on the left. (There are more) I really need to finish these into something to display. The top two will definitely be made into Christmas ornaments soon as I just joined an ornament swap. Still thinking on finishing ideas for the others. I have quite a few finished pieces framed, I really need to get those unpacked and hung on the walls.
What other kinds of needlework/crafts do you do?
