This weekend I decided to step back from my quilting
I have been following two blogs lately
Amanda who I found through all the Sewing Summit 2011
and then through her,
Now, as some of you know, I'm a more recently found quilter
but before I quilted, I was an AVID cross stitcher
No, not the "ABC sampler, you belong in my grandmothers bathroom kind"
but more modern and related to our favorite place
Kathy creates beautiful cross stitch patterns, some of which I have made like
easily our favorite
the old library
So, the last two I haven't made yet
Since becoming a quilter my cross-stitching has taken a back seat..
until I saw this on Kristi's blog.
So, of course..
I had to make
Yes, I'm fully aware it's not even close to Halloween
But, by working on it slowly (if you've ever cross stitched you know it takes a while)
I'll get it done by this year :)
This was my weekend progress
It's so much fun and so cute!
Closeup of what the finished will look like..
Sorry to those of you with Valentine's day on the brain :)
Don't worry, I'm still a quilter and will be showing that more than this
but I will be updating my progress
(Hopefully with better, daytime shots.. sorry!)
Happy Tuesday everyone!
