Projects I am working on..

Here are a few projects that I am working on, depending on what part of the house I am in and what I feel like working on at the time. ;o)

This is a cross-stitch sampler called In the Garden with Jane Austen. The directions call to have it made into a bag, but I am going to have it framed.

This is a Crabapple Hill pattern called Journal Rose. It was one of the patterns I bought with my Christmas gift card from there. I am making it into a pillow for my bedroom.

This is a cross stitch that I have been working on for years! It is an old Paula Vaughan pattern called Tea, Roses and Romance. I am about 2/3 of the way done. There is still a tea cup, a tea pot and a few flowers to go. You can see a picture of my new needle minder up in the right hand corner.

I am making a doily for our tea times. It will be a small one that will fit on my silver tray.

If you don't mind me asking, what is a needle holder?

Heather said...


It is essentially a big magnet. It holds your needle in place while it is not being used, so you don't find it in the couch cushion or have to get a new needle. ;o)

Love, Heather

Beautiful work young lady! That is a very nice embroidery flower and basket pattern and your stitches look lovely.
