A few finishes....

Believe it or not, I've been doing a little bit of stitching/sewing lately and below are a few of my finishes.  This is LHN's Joy To The World, one of my favorites by Diane.  I made it into a small pillow instead of an ornament.  I love this one!


I've been wanting to do some embroidery "just because".  I found a pattern in a quilt shop during the Pals Fall Fling last month that had 8 or so little snowmen all done in red.  It doesn't get much better than that - so here are my first 4.  I haven't done any embroidery since childhood - it's fun!  And boy is it faster than stitching!   I did these 4 on Sunday & I think they're pretty cute if I do say so myself.  I have a few more traced onto fabric - some are for gifts - hope the recipients will like them!


I do have a few other items stitched but they aren't finished yet, so I'll save them to show later.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy stitching!!

Those are the sweetest! Love that redwork. I was enticed by embroidery a few years ago, which led to crazy quilting, which brought me back to cross stitch! Yeah!!
See you in a couple of weeks!
