Cute Bunny Progress No. 1

Cute Bunny Progress No. 1

This weekend, I visited Gitta’s with my cousin and my stitching buddy, Maria (of Cross Stitch Expressions).  It’s been a while since I last visited, and the store was completely rearranged. This was my cousin’s first visit, and she loved it.  She knits and crochets, and I thought there would be more of those supplies … Continue reading

Stargazer Progress No. 1

My daughter is working on Stargazer, so I’ll be showcasing her project on my blog. We played around with fabrics that I had on hand and we settled on a fabric that looks remarkably similar to this: I found this image via Google search, and I’ll post the source link to give appropriate credit, but … Continue reading

Remembrance

Remembrance by Joan Elliott I was finally able to finish this project for my cousin.  Although I rather enjoyed beading the swirls around the wings, head, and dress, I felt like the beading on the dress was never going to end.  Because this took forever, I opted out of stitching the French knots all over … Continue reading
