About Me

My photo
I'm in my 40's, married to my best friend and we have 2 girls (19 & 11). I love all kinds of needlework, especially cross stitch, specifically samplers and French & Italian designs.

Progress on "Seasons In Time"

Here is my progress so far on "Seasons in Time," by Elizabeth's Designs.  I'm on the last band, and them I just have to add the words and frame (or maybe a bellpull).  This is a Christmas present for my Mother-in-Law, who has had kind of a rough year.

I substituted Gloriana silks for the called for Weeks Dye Works floss...the conversion is my own and I think it looks great :o)
It is on 28ct over 2, Silkweaver hand-dyed fabric.  Hazlenut, I think, lol.
This has really been a fun stitch.  I'm sure I'll be doing more of Elizabeth's Designs.  Her colors are beautiful and she uses specialty stitches, which I love.

I keep changing my mind on what to stitch my girls (11 and 19) for Christmas. I thought I had it all planned out, but I keep seeing and thinking about different designs, lol.

I want to stitch it all!!!  If only I had 10 hands and 50 more years to my life. Sigh...
