Cross Stitches

Quilting aside, this is the results of my other passion - cross stitch. Finished Heaven and Earth Design "Lady in a meadow", by Kinoko Y Craft. Stitched on 18 count aida took 2 years to complete!!

This is the start of my next project "Morris garden of delight"

Had six weeks off due to shoulder surgery, but hoping to have it completed in 18 months! They're not projects you can complete over night!

Back to sewing - have a great day!

My Craft Space

Everyone has their "creative space". I am fortunate to have several in my house. This is my quilting room where quilts are finished off. I also have my sewing room , where I create my quilts, and another space on the dining room table for when I just have to keep sewing when people are visiting.!! How rude you may say , but my friends and family understand my idiosyncracies. Last but by no means least  I also commandeer a corner of the TV room for the end of the day when I indulge in my other passion- cross stitch. I must praise my husband and four children because never in the last 20 years or so have I had any complaints or accidents on "my latest creation". They all just take it in their stride and squeeze in where-ever they fit ! Now thats accomodating!
