Isn't this adorable? I won it from my sweet friend Angela. I have it sitting here by my computer so i can enjoy it while I am in here. I need to find my tealight candles so I can REALLY enjoy it!
Someone asked what we do with all the things we cross stitch. Well, we do give away quite a bit of it but that still leaves a lot. Some have been made into small pillows and are in a basket and more will be done. Some have been framed, some made into larger pillows. But with nearly 30 years of cross stitch things for me and nearly 20 years for Jack, we would never have room to finish and display all of it. So a lot of it is stored safely so that we can look at and enjoy it. Sometimes someone comes along that a project is perfect for and it will get finished up and rehomed. So I hope that answers your question.
I wanted to share pictures of a couple of my mom's aprons that she wore. I always remember her in the kitchen wearing one of her many aprons. These are the only two that still survive. Mom passed away in 1969 when I was nine so these are fairly old. You can't tell it by the picture but they are so TINY! Mom was fairly tall and very slender. I still have some of her clothing and it looks like kids clothing it is so small. Now how did I end up so short and chubby with two tall parents? Go figure! LOL!
I am getting ready to redo my Christmas wreath. I crocheted 6 different snowflakes to go on it. I will put different Christmas type floral picks on it too and one of my crochet hearts.
Then I will cross stitch this angel and she will be in the center of the wreath. Sorry the pic is kinda fuzzy. I have a couple more elements in mind too and will make a bow most likely with my bow-dab-ra. Still in the planning stages and I doubt I will have the angel done for this years Christmas but we will see!
So that is what I have been up to this week! We had a wild night with the weather last night. Lots of thunderstorms and some tornados around the area. Pray for the people here that lost homes or had property damage. As far as I know there were no injuries here in our neck of the woods. See you soon and have a blessed weekend!
