I used to cross stitch a lot. Somewhere along the way, I got away from it, my lighting and seating changed, I got busy with other things. You know how it is.
Since we got our new couch, I once again have a good seat with great lighting, and I've been back at it.
I've done a lot of wedding and baby samplers, and for myself I love to do houses, barns, buildings, etc. I also like to do cats.
So here is the one I just finished - and I made this frame for it from the same fabric I used for my dining room valances. Although I didn't put it in the dining room - I put it on my 'cat' wall in the sewing room.
I'm all into sewing these days. I make handmade purses and purse accessories (cell phone cases, glasses cases, and wallets for example). I also make home decor items like curtains, valances, pillows and cushions.
