Autumn stitching

Leaf Party by Crab Apple Hill

I finished this banner at the end of last Autumn. I had ran out of my favourite fabric and made it with a green fabric instead and I just was not happy with it. When Joann's started putting out their Autumn fabric they had my favourite fabric again so I bought some more and remade this banner. I am so much happier with it!

Autumn is in the Air by Brittercup Designs

I finished this one recently and just picked up from the framers last week. I have two more being framed right now. I will show you as soon as they are finished. This pattern came with a bonus scissor fob pattern that I made. They also have one for each season that I will be making.

These are few pictures that I have finished over the last little while. One of them I finished in 2003 but I just had framed this summer. I really enjoy cross stitching. It is very relaxing to me. I started cross stitching in 1989. Steve was TDY and I was staying with my mom and she taught me. I really like to stitch gifts for friends. I have taught Elissa how to stitch and we enjoy stitching together.

A House that Love Built by Paula Vaughan. This is the one I finished in 2003. I love the name of this one! I have several of her porch scenes that I am planning to stitch.

Sewing caddy

I recently made these sewing caddies for me and Elissa. They were super easy and they have been so nice to have.

This one is mine.

This one is Elissa's.
