Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

While the wild wind blew

out and around the house..................
I stayed busy...................working with those words I posted about last week. I embroidered the words and then added the leaves on each side. With calico print fabric and card stock paper, I threw it all together and made tags. Perfect for sticking on top of gifts, tucked inside scrapbooks or inside of the latest romance novel..........don't you think?

I also finally finished different items to place in my etsy shop. I still have some things needing to be finished, but as you know.................there will always be something that needs to be finished.
I have a cross stitch rooster.............half stitched,..........waiting to be finished and hung in my rooster filled kitchen.
How about you? What UFO's do you have..............waiting?
A quilt top.............a cross stitched piece perhaps? I would love to hear!

Hi Kathleen, What a delight to see your lovely hand work. You are so very talented. Are you and Sophie able to get out and walk each day?

Kathleen, I love your work!! I always have UFOs around here. Right now I'm working on some free patterns I got from a friend, they are monthly doorway cross-stitch pieces, so cute! I'm also working on some other cross-stitch pieces, two others to be exact. I am also working on some crochet projects! My hands are always busy.

Have a great day!
