I just finished the chicken, now I have to put it together. I used the recommended color of dinky dyes, but used white fabric. Can't wait to get my chicken together!

Be Glad Sampler

I found this free patten on one of the greatest sites.

I am using Waterlilies "Royal Jewels" silk thread. Its a combination of greens, magentas. and a bit of teal blue.

Cat Sampler

I love this sampler. This is the picture they have on their website but my sampler looks the same. I fell in love with this patten. It hangs on my wall in the living room.

Christmas Exchange Ornament

We had an ornament exchange with the yahoo group through TGOS magazine. Its a miniature biscornu I found in a cross stitch magazine.

Another Quaker Sampler

I got this pattern from The Gift of Stitching magazine. I have to get it framed. Have never been a fan of blues but i loved the white with it on another blog.

Altoid Tin Cross Stitch

I love the altoid tins i have seen in cross stitch. I guess they would be called altered tins. :0) I created this one myself by marking the back of the fabric and taking little designs from a few different pieces of patterns. I lined the inside with a piece of felt. I still need to make a pin pop out for it. I have about 10 more tins I want to cover.

Alphabet Christmas

I am working on a self made NOEL for christmas. It will have trees on the side and be backed by felt for hanging.

My first large sampler

I am working on the carnation sampler from one of my yahoo groups. I am on the last page and can't wait to finish. The lugana linen is pale yellow and i am using DMC variegated.

My first blog!!!!

I am addicted to crafts of any type. I knit, cross stitch, quilt and will try just about any type of crafty thing at least once. I'm married and have 2 grown children. I am currently working on a quaker carnation sampler and about 4 other samplers also.
