More Craft Projects
I belong to this one Yahoo group on the Internet that my friend runs and it is called the Butterflies and Bunnies group and it is a cross stitch group. They have stitch alongs and I remember I started working on an angel and it is being done on linen. The pattern is pictured on the left.
I never cross stitched on linen before so it was quite a challenge for me but one problem...I haven't finished it yet since I get side tracked by other projects and my DH wanted me to work on his afghan and finish it. The only picture I have of it is the granny squares and of the afghan wrapped around him. I will just post the one with the granny squares so that everyone has an idea of what the afghan looks like. The photo on the top right side has the squared from a Christmas afghan ( I haven't finished it yet) wrapped around the teddy bear and the granny square that is on the Tweetybird is the one that belong to the afghan I completed for my DH.
I was also cross stitching a bear pattern and that too was done on linen. I was getting much of my work done on stitchers night at this local cross stitch shop and it closed recently after almost being in business for 2o years. That was pretty sad since not only was it a great shop but the stitchers nights were great night to get together with friends and also the owner always treated us to pizzas that night and we could bring snacks as well. I always brought salsa and nachos that everyone loved.
