Cross Stitch

Cheeky Cross Stitch Humor

I am still sick with that pain in the butt cold. My head has become nothing more than a pounding snot factory. I have been carpooling everyone to work and school each morning only to return to bed until noon. Then I have been getting up and doing some housework before settling into some cross stitching. I am so ready for this cold to hit the road…!

Here are a few more things that I made to hang in my craft room. I can’t wait to repaint and decorate.

I finished this cheeky cross stitch over two weeks ago or so my Instagram account says.

I made the cross stitch pattern on this website if you’d like to make your own.

???????????????????????????????

I just finished this one last night. I used the same website for the words and then I used this pin from Pinterest for the artwork. I also added beads to make the pins in the pin cushion look more realistic.

Britt Pillowcase 1

Last but not least I started a Christmas pillowcase that has this Santa and a little Bear on it. This is another one of my Sister’s WIP’s.

I have also started my keeping my Daughter busy with some Cross Stitch and Embroidery. She’s finding the embroidery a little easier right now. I will share pictures of her projects soon.

Two Left Socks

I recently finished yet another pair of socks. I had to wait for a day bright enough to take a clear picture. It was so gray and gloomy out that the color didn’t pop the way I wanted it too.  I finally settled for this picture taken in -9 temperatures not counting the wind chills.

This is the Socks on a Plane pattern and the yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Hand-Painted in the shade of Cartoon. These socks were a blast to knit partly because of the bright cheery color and partly because of the ease of the pattern. I will be knitting socks with this pattern again. Unfortunately, I found a mistake when I was ready to start knitting the ankles of both socks. I knit two left socks and no right ones. They don’t fit any different. It is just that the decorative cable is on the wrong side on one of the socks. I was too lazy to take it apart since I was making them for myself.
