Camera Back From Vacation

Better Homes and Gardens-Cross Stitch Christmas 2002
I changed the dress colors from Aqua Greens to Purples.
I made this ornament as a rememberence for my Great Niece Katie Hopson-15 years old
She died last month after suffering a seizure. She was developmentally challenged and loved the color purple and angels.

First Exchange Received !!

I received the prettiest pinkeep today. There was a piece of linen as an extra. I hope my partner is as pleased as I am.

Half Finished!

Well, I finished the main stitching on my biscornu, but the putting together is really going slowly. Having trouble with the corners. Started a swap piece today, of course can't say who it is for and what it is. Had to rethink my choice when I found out who my partner was and what she did and didn't like. Not a bad thing, now I have to stitch out of my comfort zone. Really a GOOD thing. I need to deviate(sp) once in a while. Would really like to put it on linen but no can do with my eyes. 18ct will have to do.

Stitching update

This is a new project I started and have almost finished. It is going to be a pinkeep. I got the pattern from a Better Homes and Gardens sampler book and designed the border myself. I have made a little progress on the Baby Express. I just needed a break for a couple of days.
