Then there is this piece below that is all beautiful soft greens, blues and purples. Once finished is will have "cross stitch" in many different languages on it. I love it. Only got this far though.
Then there is this angel which was given to me many years back. I got this far on it and put it away during a time when I kind of lost interest in the art itself. Thank the Lord I came back to cross stitching as I really do love it. Not that much left to do, but the fact is, is that it is still not finished!
Then the last few nights I've been working on the piece below and am enjoying it still. It is just one piece from a series from Little House of Needleworks. I have three of the series finished and this is the "IJK" one. So there is a ways to go before all the little houses are complete but I'm wanting to make them into tiny pillows to display in my dough bowl. I'm loving the soft muted colors in these pieces.
While I'm at this horrid look at myself stage! LOL I'll keep going. I also have the beautiful crocheted shawl in the works. Well only about ten rows of it done really. Done with a yarn that I love because of the color variations. This is how far I've gone.....so far! By the way, for those of you that enjoy crocheting and knitting as well, like myself, this is Scheepjes yarn and if you want to see some beautiful things that is made with it, go to official scheepjes - international group on Facebook. Be prepared to be lured in once you see these beautiful creations.
So there! I confessed! Not is it just cross stitched pieces I have hanging about unfinished, but a a crocheted shawl as well as a knitted pair of socks and a close to finished crocheted afghan as well. Shame of me! Also want to add that I haven't gone through all my stash at this point and don't really dare to. I'm sure there are other things that need finishing as well.
So as I work on the things that I've started up until now, I'll share updates with you my dear friends and we'll celebrate together as they're finished with a cup of coffee or tea and a few minutes relaxation time.
I may have mentioned that I've gone into a different style in decorating at our house. I love the farmy, primitive look and have been doing one room at a time. I found these two little critters over the weekend and they fit right in. They're both over seven inches tall and six inches high. Paid just $5.00 for the set. Can't beat that!
At the same place I found this doily which is over 31" in diameter! It is beautifully done. Now I have the pattern for this as well as the thread, but for $8.00 I felt it would be smarter to grab it up and use it than to wind up with another unfinished project! I am learning! It looks lovely on my dining table.
Keep in mind my dear friends and followers, that when I get to 100 followers that I'll be giving away a box of pretties which will include some thing that everyone likes. Crafty things and just fun and pretty things are in it, and it's anxious for a trip. So let your friends that may be interested know also. Hope to be able to get the box on the way soon.
Until next time, please ya'll, stay well and safe. Enjoy some beautiful weather and come back again soon. Love ya'll. Oh! Of course, last but not least......"Feel the colors"
