Current Project




I have started working on a perpetual calendar using cross stitched months. I got the patterns for free from Rainbow Gallery. www.rainbowgallery.com

I have got three months done. I haven't finished them off, but I plan to make borders on them and make hangers with ribbons. Then I need to do the numbers, I will probably use cross stitch paper. Here are the three that are done.

Past Projects- Cats




One of my first projects- I made these three coasters from a kit from Hobby Lobby. I really like them and at the time I had a cute little orange kitty.


I made this needle case from a small pattern that I found somewhere on the internet. I don't remember where now.



I like this little kitty. I made this from a kit from Wal-Mart. I don't remember where I put this, but I think I am going to try and find it now.




Past Projects- Random Projects

For my dad, for fathers day. I forget where I found the fish pattern, but I made the rest of it up.

Past Projects- Mirabilia


This is my biggest project finished so far- Touching the Autumn Sky by Mirabilia.
I worked on this for about a year off and on. I love all of the colors and the whimsy of it.
My husband and I framed this ourselves- I found the frame for $5 at an antique store and the rest of the framing cost about $35 dollars- I was pretty happy with it. It hangs above our entertainment center now.


I stitched this Mirabilia freebie for my mother in law for Christmas. The beading is so beautiful.

I stitched this freebie for my mother for Christmas. I really enjoyed both of these projects and I have one for my self in progress.

Past Projects- Baby Birth Announcements








I made these birth announcements for my older sister's four kids. They all have matching frames. I enjoyed doing them all and I think it is fun to have them all have the Precious Moments theme. I hope to do birth announcements for my other neices and nephews when my other siblings have children :)


Past Projects- Care Bears

This was my first cross stitch project ever. I stitched it for my oldest nephew's third birthday, and I have been hooked ever since!
I stitched this Wish Bear for Cole's Quilts. It went to a little girl named Sarah. They stitched about 9 squares into a quilt.
I made this frame for my cousin's baby, but they call her Maggie now :) It was the first time I stitched on paper, it is different and a little difficult.
This pattern I made for my oldest nephews 4th birthday. I sewed it onto a denim bag for him..


I made this one for my husband's god daughter for Christmas.



I plan to make a baby quilt for my children someday out of these large Care Bear patterns- I have 2 books with the large Classic Care Bear patterns (One is Care Bear Cousins).


Another square for the baby quilt



This magnet I made for my older sister for Christmas. Funshine Bear is her favorite.



Another square for the baby quilt. Tender Heart Penguin (My favorite Care Bear Cousin!)




Decorating the Christmas Tree- Made the first Christmas after I started stitching.



I haven't stitched Care Bears for awhile, but I will stitch more whenever we have children so I can finish up the baby quilt :)
