Cross Stitch

Last year was the last time I finished a cross stitch project (well there are these bibs that are complete except for some outlines, but AppleBlossom is too far beyond using them – wouldn’t use them for food so much as for a drooling baby).

The quilt was for my niece, SisterL’s #5. Now I am making a Baby Hugs Bunny & Bear matching sampler for my new nephew, SisterL’s #6. I’m also going to start a different one soon for my brother’s son (four months younger that AppleBlossom).

And just started today, I’m going to make a birth sampler for my AppleBlossom. (I’ll come back to the boys…) this one just arrived in the mail. It could not be more appropriate or perfect.

So how about it do you want to keep track of my journey with status photos?

  • So cute! The cross stitch is the first stitch my mother ever taught me. When I was about 7, I made my first table runner. I didnt pick it back up again until I was expecting a child of my own, and we made a Noah’s Ark blanket together, and also some bibs! This post made me very nostalgic…
    Happy Holidays!

    • Thank you for stopping by! I love that bit about the homemade crayons. I had to share that with my sister. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. I’ll have to add more status updates. 🙂

  • Awesome … I don’t know how you do it all. I just went and bought the stuff to start a new project a week or so ago, but haven’t had time to actually sit down and start it. Maybe this weekend after the Christmas decorations are up I will have time to get it started.
