Well, I finally started on my cross stitch. Not a big start but a start. I must say I am rather proud of my french knots. Now I have been cross stitching since I was nine and I am fifty six now but french knots just do not like me! I can do really nice ones with candlewick though. So far I have done some decent ones on this project. The fabric in the picture is actually a soft green. Not a good picture at all.
We had a lovely sunset the other day.

I am putting aside my Rosewood Manor piece for a bit. I have had a 9 x 12 inch piece of aida for some time and have never found anything I wanted to put on it. But I have finally decided this will do.

I got both capes finished. I forgot to take a picture of the blue one but here is mine with it's buttons.

I have done nothing as of yet with my cross stitch repair. Best to sit it aside for a bit. But Jack has been cross stitching away on pillowcases.

Well, I found the source of my trouble with the border. It about makes me want to cry! There is an area on the bottom with only three stitches when it should be four. See it on the right?

First let me say on my cross stitch piece, nothing is wrong with the pattern. I just think I was to eager to finish it and kept goofing up. Now as to the crochet projects, save for buttons the blue one for a friend is done. It was easily finished in one week and not difficult at all.
