More Cross stitches.

If you want to see more cross stitch projects you could follow the link to this post on Chookyblues blog, where she has a whole list of folks who are taking part in a Cross stitch blog hop organised and hosted by the lovely Chooky herself. Thanks Chooky, I'm loving looking around at other cross stitch pieces.

On with the show.

Todays pieces are all from 2005. In spite of what you see here they were framed and given away.
'Tenderness' was a gift to a dear friend and her new baby daughter.
Nordic Angel was a gift to my sister and her husband. They eloped and secretly married in Sweden in an ice chapel, so I wanted something which reflected that, besides, she didn't like any of the wedding samplers we looked at.
Little Angel was a gift to my BFF. Rather that sign the edge of the work, I signed my name on the pages of the book. Along with a message.
I have many more projects from 2005. I may post some more tomorrow, in fact, I probably have enough pictures of my cross stitch to keep us busy for the whole week! Right now though, I'm off to knit, I'm half way up a lovely cosy hat.

You do beautiful, absolutely beautiful work, Lou! My first love was cross stitch too but I have a lot of unfinished projects--one of which is a cousin's wedding project that is 2 years overdue....

Thanks for sharing your cross stitch pieces, they're lovely. I especially think the chess board is very cool!
