Round Two

Chookyblue is currently hosting round two of the cross stitch blog hop. Go peep at her blog for a list of those taking part. This is of course my fourth post! I got carried away last weekend.

On with the show. I stitched a series of six of these 'Windswept Santa's' and made them into tree ornaments. I really should remember to photograph the rest of them.
Ooops! You'll have to turn sideways to see this one! 'Good Fortune' Was a gift to my brother and sister in law when they moved into their new house together. The blurb on the kit packaging said it should hang near the front door. And that's where it is. :-)
'Holly Fairy' was a magazine chart. One of my sisters started it, but got stuck. I finished him off for her. I'm really not sure what happened to him, I must ask.
I made the tatty teddy wedding sampler twice! Once for James and Pat and again for a school friend. Sadly both couples have split. I haven't done any wedding samplers since learning that. I feel like I jinxed them.
Needless to say all of these pieces were finished off with beautiful frames. You don't see said frames here because I learned that it is oh so much easier to photograph them before they go under glass.

Enjoy the blog hop, I'll be back tomorrow with more.

I'm guessing all those long winter's nights for many years have been filled with cross stitch. You have made so many beautiful pieces.

Once again .... lovely stitching, Loulee!

Back in the spring, I was at a thrift store and saw this lovely wooden box. The lid had a cross stitch that was done for a wedding a few years ago. I really wanted to buy it, but couldn't. Those dates and names really bothered me. I learned a good lesson that day.

You have made some really pretty pieces. You've reminded me of some Christmas decorations I've made. Must photograph them when I get them out!
