Here is some some stash I've purchased over the past week! Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Preview, LHN's Heart & Home Sampler, Curly Q Ewe and the Busy Needle, and finally With Thy Needle's Flag Day. I finally broke down and ordered Flag Day from the website http://www.countrystitchesonline.com. They also have lots of cool jewelry and charts from other designers.
I've been working on 'Betsy' from Sheepish Designs. Stitching it on 40 ct Antique Cotton with DMC and using one thread over two. It's hard on the eyes to get used to the 40 ct but I think the end result will be worth it. I'll post a picture of my progress on 'Betsy' soon.
I loved stitching this one. I'm new to LHN and I like how quickly Diane's designs stitch up. There are so many projects on my list right now, I'm not sure when I'll start the main part of Traveling Stitcher.
I think setting up my blog will be a slow process. I'll have to take some pictures to download this weekend of my stitchy projects and WIPs. Since I've spent hours reading other stitchy blogs I thought it was high time I started my own.
Welcome! I'm a 50 something cross stitcher with three great 20 something daughters and a husband. I've been cross stitching for 27 years; it is truly my passion. I also love knitting, reading and spending time with my pets - our dog Maisy and three cats Quinn, Maddie and Millie.
